November is National Novel Writing Month, the writer equivalent of the Boston Marathon or the Tour du France. When writers challenge themselves to write 50,000 words in 30 days. For some, it allows them to start novels already promised to an agent or an editor, for others it is a chance to prove something to themselves. NanoWrimo provides hints, help, and even pep talks from authors like Jim Butcher, Veronica Roth, Mercedes Lackey, and even James Patterson. What they can’t give writers, and what libraries can- is a quiet place to work and a group of like-minded NaNoWrimers to work with.
Still have doubts? The following books started out as NaNo Novels:
The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Persistence of Memory by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
So, we’ll provide the quiet space and the like-minded company, you provide the 50,000 words. We hope to see your NaNo novel in our library someday.
