Getting Inspired For Writing

National Novel Writing Month

Ever think about writing a novel?
Ever think about writing a whole novel in JUST A MONTH?
Ever think that it would be utterly crazy and wild?
Ever think it help to have tools to keep you on track and a community to give you support and cheer you on?

Yes, yes, yes, yes

National Novel Writing Month

National Novel Writing month is coming up soon!!

You can sign up for free and access many tools that will help spur you on in your writing.

You don’t have to finish writing a whole novel, but it will help you get started on accomplishing that secret dream.  The goal is to write 50,000 words in one month.  Small groups form to help support each other. You can find out about local events and become part of a global movement.  Hundreds of thousands of people join each year for this fun and inspiring event. Last year there were over 668,000 people around the world!

Just go to http://nanowrimo.org/ for more information

The pep talks alone make it entirely worth signing up!

If you don’t really want to write a novel,

To get EVERYONE started in writing the Writing Center @ MSU is having a Write-a-thon on October 18th.  It is a great time where you join a small group of fellow community members and spend a few minutes getting inspired and then time just writing.  The groups walk to several different locations and let the surroundings add to the enriching experience.  Don’t miss this chance to write with like-minded people, to feel connected to a larger community, and to get that much needed boost in your writing.


This year’s theme is hunger. It is a broad topic that can link to whatever you want. OF COURSE, you can write about anything, but it is surprising the fresh ideas you will get from the facilitators and surroundings.

The write-a-thon starts in the main writing center (Room 300 in Bessey Hall) at 1:00pm and goes until about 4:00pm.  You can leave whenever you want, so come and join us for as long as you can.

For more information go to the Writing Center’s Write-a-thon page. We hope to see you there!

Happy NaNoWriMo!
