Final Days Write-In/Workshop: Please, No Autographs

The end is near! You’re feeling great about your novel. You’ve written more words in three weeks than you’ve ever written before. Maybe you’re still trying to play catch up, but that is OKAY because you still have a week, and you are not going to quit now. Come to this important write-in, and then join us as we host our last during writing 30-minute workshop to discuss common Week 4 challenges and share tips for thriving this week, and finishing your draft.

Down-to-the-Wire Write-In/Celebration

Wednesday, November 30th: 3:35 to 5:00 PM

This is it! You’ve survived the month, and now it’s time for our final write-in of the 2011 NaNoWriMo season. Join us as we eek out those last few words to reach our goal, and do some much-deserved celebrating together. After all, you have just written a novel! A NOVEL!!!! It’s time to celebrate!

*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.
