What is National Novel Writing Month?
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a 30-day writing challenge with participants all over the world! You can register on Nanowrimo.org, track your word count, and compete with friends to hit 50,000 words by November 30th. It's a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing that encourages getting words on the page and turning off your self-editor (at least until December 1). The idea is to spend the month immersed in the act of writing for writing's sake and get your creative juices flowing.
How does it work?

What events will you have at the library?
Matthews, Mint Hill, Hickory Grove and Main Library will have informal "Write-ins" in November. Come enjoy a quiet space and the company of your fellow writers as you work towards 50,000 words. Even if you're not participating in the official challenge, and just want some motivation to work on your own project: All are welcome!
