It’s that time again! November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and at The Writing Center we are excitedly anticipating its arrival.
The goal of NaNoWriMo is to encourage its participants to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in the 30 days of November. It sounds intimidating, but its bark is really worse than its bite. The main purpose that the organizers of NaNoWriMo have is to encourage you to participate. NaNoWriMo isn’t a “if you ain’t first, you’re last” event, the hope is that you’ll write, period. That said, the 50,000 word limit is purely arbitrary, but you do get a nifty certificate if you get there.
Plus, we would be happy to work with you on your novels in The Writing Center!
The local Great Lansing community has your back too! Here is a list of upcoming NaNoWriMo events in the area.
- Write Ins every Thursday in November (except Thanksgiving) at Old Chicago Okemos starting at 7 pm.
- Write Ins every Saturday at The Avenue Cafe starting at 11 am.
- TGIO party Sunday December 1 – Time and Place TBD
