10/24: NaNoWriMo with Elisa Lorello

Get Ready for National Novel Writing Month with Elisa Lorello

“NaNoWriMo” stands for National Novel Writing Month. During the entire month of November, people from coast to coast accept the challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel in those 30 days. If you’ve always wanted to write a novel, now’s your chance! If you’ve written several and want to challenge yourself, now’s your chance! Since 2005, I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo three times—this year will mark my fourth.

Come join me at Boothbay Harbor Regional Library on Wednesday, October 24, at 5:30 p.m. for a “pre-planning” session. There we’ll set goals and discuss strategies to meet your daily word count, as well as answer questions about the NaNoWriMo rules.

Throughout the month of November, we’ll meet once a week to check in, cheer each other on, and write. I’m looking forward to seeing and writing with you!
