NaNoWriMo and the Library

crest-bda7b7a6e1b57bb9fb8ce9772b8faafbOnce again, we’re finishing up a NaNoWriMo program at the library in a few days. We have a great group of writers who have participated in many of our National Novel Writing Month programs, and this session was filled with a fantastic group as usual.

What have we been working on this month?

  • We have 11 participants who are either writing a new novel, working on a previous book, or plotting a new book for 2016.
  • Since we began this program, we’ve had 10 novels completed, from thrillers, to fantasy, to romantic comedies.
  • We are busy prepping for a fun creativity workshop in the new year that will help our writers—and anyone else who feels stifled in their creative zone—to work through the block and start creating again.
  • Due to popular demand, our Carleton Place Public Library writers are working on plans to start a writing blog to tell our community about what we do, and allow new members to check us out before coming to one of our meetings.
  • And our future plans include a community writing project that we hope will allow other library patrons to see exactly what we’re working on at the library!

If you’re interested in joining our writing group, you can send us a quick email to find out more (cplibrarywriters@yahoo.ca), drop by the library for more information on NaNoWriMo and how we participate at the library, or watch for one of our upcoming sessions in the new year, listed in our Winter Newsletter.

On a fun note, our writers finishing up books this month are going to be heading into the last four hours of the event with a fun write-in at the library…until midnight! We’ll have word sprints, prizes, and probably lots of coffee to keep us all going.

This is a great group of people at all experience levels and writing many different things. If you need some support to help you follow through with your writing plans, this might be the group for you. If you’re looking for some detailed criticism, we can also probably help you with that, too, although we’re not a critique group per se. Regardless, we’d love to have you at one of our meetings if you’re able to attend.

See you writing at the library!
