The library challenges everyone to write a novel

By From page B12 | October 29, 2012

Have you always wanted to write a novel but can’t find a way to start?

Looking to impress your friends and family by telling them that you have written a novel?

Then November is the time to dust off the typewriter, pick up a pad and pen, and start on the writer’s adventure that is known as National Novel Writing Month.

Challenged to write a 50,000 word novel between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30, frantic writers unite for a month of procrastination, commiseration, snacking, metaphors and caffeine-induced late night writing marathons.

To help with the quest for the 50,000 word novel, the El Dorado County Library will hold “write-ins” at the main library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville.

Bring laptops, typewriters, journals, reams of paper and pens and join fellow writers in the meeting room for writing, snacks and support.

Writing sessions will be Tuesday, Nov. 20 and 27 from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 21 and 28 from 2 to 4 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17 and 24, from 3 to 5 p.m.

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing that forces writers to lower expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.

For more information visit the Library Programs and Events calendar on the library’s Website eldoradolibrary.org or contact the library at 530-621-5540.

This event is sponsored by Friends of the Library.
