Get ready writers, it’s that time of year again – National Novel Writing Month is nearly upon us! Every November, writers around the globe set off on a month long challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days; that means 1,666 words per day.
Genre or project aside, the idea behind this difficult dare is to jump start your creativity and create a routine for your writing practice. Griffin Free Library will be a participating NaNoWriMo location this year, offering veteran and budding writers alike a safe and quiet space to work, research or just clear your head for the task.
To that end, on Wednesday, October 16 from 6-7:30 pm, author and speaker Dan Szczesny will conduct a NaNoWriMo Prep Workshop at the library to help you build a strategy toward accomplishing the November challenge. This workshop is free, and there will be plenty of coffee on hand!
A successful NaNoWriMo requires plenty of prep work, and Szczesny, himself a two time NaNoWriMo winner, will cover a selection of strategies designed to inspire writers to make that month long commitment. And even though the month is dedicated to novel writers, this workshop will include ways that non-fictions writers can benefit as well.
So whether you’re writing the next great American novel or just want to improve your writing practice, bring a notebook and a handful of ideas to this workshop and get prepped to win at NaNoWriMo.
NaNoWriMo 2019 Prep Workshop, Wed. Oct. 16 from 6:7:30pm. Free. For more info on Dan, check out www.danszczesny.com. Feel free to call the library at 603-483-5374 with questions. See you then writers!
