NaNoWriMo!!!

Hey Muskies! Do you like to write? Are you looking to broaden your creative horizons and challenge your writing skills? Then here’s a suggestion from one aspiring writer to another. If you weren’t aware, November is the National Novel Writing Month(or NaNoWriMo for short) and every November the Muskingum English Department encourages students and faculty to participate. Within this one month writers must challenge themselves to write a full novel. This means 50,000 words or more in 30 days.

To help sponsor this event the English Department will hold several meetings throughout November in which English professors and majors offer their advice and guidance to writing a novel. Though the informational meeting has already passed you can still participate! Also to help entice you a little more, there will be fun activities, food, and prizes for any and all who attend. At the end of November you can submit your finished works for the NaNoWriMo contest and find out if your novel won at the celebration and awards meeting.

It may sound impossible, it may sound like a lot of work, but hey  you never know, maybe you could write the next Song Of Fire And Ice. It’s not unheard of. Fun fact: one November a young writer by the name of Sara Gruen decided to write a novel called Water For Elephants for NaNoWriMo. Today that novel is a top bestseller and also a movie!(a terrific movie btw) So join me and writers all over the world as we create worlds on pages and stories to inspire. Good luck Muskies!
