Come Write In back at Rockland library
Rockland — Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., invites aspiring novelists to write in the library throughout November, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The library will provide a comfortable and quiet place to work, with free WiFi, Mondays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. An introductory session Oct. 29 was canceled due to the weather, and there will be no meeting Nov. 12, when the library is closed for Veteran’s Day observance.
NaNoWriMo challenges would-be novelists to write a 50, 000 word novel in one month. It is the writing world’s version of a marathon, said Grant Faulkner, executive director of National Novel Writing Month.
“Writers exit the month with more than a novel; they’ve experienced a transformative creative journey,” he said.
Lee Heffner, a ghost blogger, teacher of Sudden Fiction and Final Draft workshops and a published author with a degree in English literature, has participated in NaNoWriMo four times and has finished once. Come Write In participants will be able to work with Heffner on specific topics each week including getting started; character; dialogue; surprises; and Now What?
