November is National Novel Writing Month
Beginning November 1, over 400,000 people worldwide will attempt to write a 50,000-word novel by midnight on the 30th. The exercise is an attempt to silence the inner critic and get that idea out of your head and onto a working draft. Last year over 30 people wrote at the library as part of our informal group, and over half achieved the goal, the others had a great time trying. For more info contact Sarah, stop by for a write-in, or check out  

* Join us for 'Write-Ins' every single Saturday in November from 10-4.
* Writers & Editors: A Love Story? Tue. Dec. 6 at 7:00 Three of the 'Nevertheless Writers', who have published more than 25 books, talk about types of editors and the editorial process.
