November is National Novel Writing Month... NaNoWriMo!
The NaNoWriMo organization is a nonprofit that provides tools, structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds — on and off the page.
Writing a novel alone can be difficult, even for seasoned writers. NaNoWriMo helps you track your progress, set milestones, connect with other writers in a vast community, and participate in events that are designed to make sure you finish your novel. Oh, and best of all, it’s free!
NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH HAS A PLACE @ OCEANSIDE LIBRARY! On Thursdays, November 7, 14, 21, from 7:00p.m.- 8:00 p.m. write among others, talk about new projects and feel inspired! We will have a station to register for NaNoWriMo on their website. For more information on this initiative visit www.nanowrimo.org or click the button below.
