To all the aspiring writers out there, November is your month to shine.
Beginning November 1st, National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, is a 30 day-long event where you strive to finish a 50,000 word novel by midnight, November 30th. You can share your work and receive feedback from other writers on the NaNoWriMo website, www.nanowrimo.org.
Here at the Niles Library, we’re partnering up with The Office of Letters and Light Chicago Chapter to help you keep those creative juices flowing and those fingers typing. Starting November 3rd, stop by the Library at 6:30 pm every Monday in November for more information about NaNoWriMo and to think up some great ideas for your next bestseller. You can find out more info about the event here.
If you find yourself suffering from a severe case of writer’s block halfway through the month, here are some books you can check out from our catalog that might spur some creativity again:
