Are you ready for NaNoWriMo?

We are getting ready!

It is perhaps the adrenaline, but the idea of writing a novel in 30 days is exhilarating. Completely understandable that not everybody has the same feelings. We can't all be wired this way.

BUT, for those of us that do enjoy writing and want to take on the challenge...

The Jennie Woodworth Library is hosting a few meetups. These meetups are geared to those that are interested in writing. There is no age limit and no category limit on the writing. (Yes, I understand it is called National Novel Writing Month, but if you want to write a biography, by all means, write it!)

We will have writing sprints and word wars and more!

Essentially we will be a support group for those that are taking on this challenge. For more info on nanowrimo, go to You can sign up completely free, although they do use the event as a fundraiser for the Young Writers Program.

We have a group set up for those under 18 and educators. You can get the information for it at any of our meetings.

We had our interest meeting/ introduction this past Saturday but that does not mean you can't join us. Please, just come when you can.

The following meetups are on the calendar,

  • October 26, 12-2 pm Room 114, Planning Workshop
  • October 28, 5-7 pm Room 114, Planning Workshop
  • November 1, 5-8 pm Room 114, Kick Off
  • November 16, 12-6 pm Room 114, Recklessly Writing
  • November 30, 12-9 pm Room 114, Down to the Finish

In addition to the set meetups, the Jennie Woodworth Library is a Come Write In location and as long as we are open you can come in to the library and write your heart out. We do have FREE WiFi and with a library card you can check out one of our four computers.

The first week of December we will have our wrap up and awards celebration (Dec 2 or 7)
