You — yes, you — can write your own novel. And you can do it in a month. November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. And this year’s event is going to be so much fun!

The Cadott Library is hosting three events in October, leading up to NaNoWriMo in November. The first, on October 1, is called “What is NaNoWriMo?”, and will give an overall description of the month.

Do you want to write a novel for NaNoWriMo, but have no idea what you want to write? That’s perfectly okay. There are activities that can help with that. Some of them have been featured here already. Others will be posted here in the future.
