Can you write a novel in 30 days?
Sara Gruen wrote Water for Elephants and Elizabeth Haynes penned Into the Darkest Corner during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).
Find out how you can succeed in writing a novel in just 30 days -- the NaNoWriMo website has information on how to get started, rules for submitting your completed work, success stories, pep talks, writing tips, forums and blogs to connect you with thousands of other writers world-wide and locally.
This year, Northborough Free Library has joined NaNoWriMo as a designated ComeWriteIn! place to draft your novel. The library has plenty of private space, and places to meet with other writers. Take advantage of free wifi, computers, and lots of material to inspire and assist you in the mechanics of writing. You'll also find friendly, helpful librarians. And, coffee, tea and cocoa is only a dollar.
The program has been in existence for a while, explained Library Director Jean Langley. This, however, is the first year the Northborough library has had an official partnership.
"Judging from the number of inquiries we get from self-published authors, I swear every other person is writing a novel," said Langley. "I'm exaggerating, of course. The next big one? Maybe. We have some very talented people who live in town."
