The library newsletter for August just came out and a third of the front page is devoted to our National Novel Writing Month project. Now to see if we get any interest.
I think I have mentioned that we have quite a few writers in the Dells area, but most write nonfiction, spiritual reflections, things of that nature. Writing a novel can be a bit scary, as I know from my own efforts. But I want to encourage people to give it a try.
It may just be me, but until I had published a novel, I felt like I wasn't really a writer -- even though by then I had published dozens of articles, book reviews and short contributions to reference works in the States, Europe and even Africa. There is just something about being able to say, "I wrote a novel."
Thinking about it? Jump on in. The water's fine!
