November: National Novel Writing Month

by Ann B.

Have you ever thought of being a writer?  Dreamed of someday putting your stories on a page?  Do you have a story to tell?  Either science fiction or historical fiction? Maybe a creepy horror novel or a western centered in the Southwest?  Maybe a memoir?  If you’ve ever wanted to write a story or just take a stab at getting down your ideas, November is the perfect month for you.

It’s NaNoWriMo time!  National Novel Writing Month (  Started over 20 years ago, the goal of NaNoWriMo participants is to write 50,000 words in one month.  It breaks down to 1666 words per day.  If you reach the goal, you win!  The NaNoWriMo community is very encouraging and helpful if you desire to put some ink on the page . . . or print on the paper . . . or text on the screen. 

If you need a kick in the pants to get started, NaNoWriMo can help.  If you’re the kind of person who needs or wants a specific goal in a specific time frame, you’ll find compatriots there as well. The library is a good place to help with your research or your inspiration. A good place to break that writer’s block or simply find a starting point.

The following titles are just a small sample of the resources available through the library to inspire you or get you through that rough writing patch.
