Week 2 Write-In/Workshop: What the Heck Was I Thinking?!

Thursday, November 10th: 12:00 to 3:00 PM

So you survived the first week on sheer excitement and strong coffee. Week 2 hits with a bang, and
you look up from your laptop and ask yourself “What the heck was I thinking? Am I crazy?” You
are not alone, welcome to the Week 2 reality check. We’ll finish this write-in with a 30-minute
workshop to discuss common Week 2 challenges and share tips for thriving this week. And you can
thrive, nay, you will thrive, so stick with us!

*NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

Check out our NaNoWriMo LibGuide for more information on NaNoWriMo, Oakton Library’s NaNoWriMo workshops and write-ins,  and helpful resources for our budding NaNoWriMo novelists.

Interested in joining? The Library is pleased to host a series Write-ins and workshops led by Lori Oster, Assistant Professor of English at Oakton to help people write their novel.
