NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Each year, the month of November sees a flurry of writers working on the next Great American Novel. Officially, a writer is supposed to complete a novel of 50,000 words by the end of the month (that's 1,667 words a day). Many people use the month to put their butts in a chair and to just get started!
We have at least one Nesmith Library staff person working on her novel, but not on work time! However, if she, or anyone else wanted to come to the Library to work, we have plenty of table space, some quiet study rooms, and WiFi!
There are writing-related books on the end panels in the nonfiction section of the library. Titles such as these are on display:
Bauer, Marion Dane. What's your story?: A Young Person's Guide to Writing Fiction. [YA 808.31 BAU]
Berg, Elizabeth. Escaping into the Open: The Art of Writing True. [808 BER]
Frey, James N. How to Write a Damn Good Novel, II: Advanced Techniques for Dramatic Storytelling. [808.3 FRE]
Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. [808.02 LAM]
Rozakis, Laurie. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creative Writing. [808 ROZ]
