NaNoWriMo - Come Write In!

Sunday, November 6, 2016 (All day)

November means National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! The goal of NaNoWriMo is to forget editing and overthinking and just write, write, write 50,000 words in 30 days. You can do it! And we're here to help. Need a quite space to get those words flowing? Every Sunday in November we will have a conference room reserved especially for you NaNoWriMoers. Bring your pen and paper or your laptop (plugs are available for charging), coffee if needed, and be ready to write your novel.
