The 2020 National Novel Writing Month season is underway! We will hold three virtual preparatory workshops in October. The popular Library Crawl is back to offer writers plenty of opportunities to work on their novels at write-ins while earning chances for nice prizes at the TGIO (Thank Goodness It's Over) Party December 5th.

Consider joining the Writing Journey, our year-round writing group (it's free!).

    Hey NaperWriMo! Here's a great quiz to figure out what type of organization to use for your story (complete with tactic tips). It's enlightening. Apparently, I'm very firmly a plantser. https://quiz.tryinteract.com/#/5d2513fa4fc6b400143e9004#
