Aspiring authors will be typing away furiously as part of National Novel Writing Month in November.
More than 250,000 people around the world will be working with the goal of completing a 50,000 word draft in 30 days. But starting today, Nicolet College will be offering a series of free sessions.
Nicolet Library Director Todd Mountjoy says the meeting will be informational where participants will set up accounts at the NaNoWriMo website and how to upload the daily word count.
There will be three additional meetings throughout November.
Mountjoy says, “We’ll come together to trade stories, share the agonies and joys of writing and give encouragement when the dreaded writer’s block kicks in.”
NaNoWriMo began 14 years ago in Berkeley, Cali., emphasizing creativity and adventure over creating a literary masterpiece. However, several New York Times Best Sellers including Water for Elephants, the Night Circus and Cinder began during the month.
