National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

November 1 begins National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. If you’re not familiar, participants strive to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month. If you’ve ever wanted to write a novel, this November is the perfect time to get motivated to do so! Both Dundee and Randall Oaks have computers you can use for writing your manuscript and desks with charging stations if you bring in your own laptop. Check out the official NoNoWriMo website here for more details.  

A number of popular published books have been written during NaNoWriMo . Check out some from our collection if you want to see the payoff. If you would like more information on how to master the craft before you dive into a story, we’ve got resources for all ages to help you out there. Don’t hesitate to ask your librarian for further recommendations.
