National Novel Writing Month

November 1, 2011

typewriterAttention all future best-selling authors! November is National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo as the members of this ultimate writing group calls it. This is an online community that provides feedback, encouragement, discussion groups, pep talks, etc to help get your novel written. So, now it’s time to sharpen those pencils, get new typewriter ribbon, charge up your laptops, or whatever method you use to organize your ideas and start writing!

We want to see the final product in our library so, no pressure, right?

If you don’t get your novel written in 30 days, don’t worry – the library has a monthly writers’ group meetings the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm.

“This group is open to all writers–we have writers for magazines, etc., not just novelists/fiction writers,” comments group leader, Mike Kalmbach.

Speaking of seeing final products in the library… I want to say congratulations to Mike Kalmbach for getting his novel published and on the shelves of our library. Look for The Caldarian Conflict by Mike Kalmbach on our shelves.
