Get that Pen Warmed Up! November is National Novel Writing Month


Six Pinal County Libraries to Participate in Month-Long Event

FLORENCE – Have you been thinking about writing the next great American novel, but just haven’t completed it, or even started it yet?

If that literary genius in you is still struggling to come out, National Novel Writing Month can be what pushes you to write that novel that you have been thinking of for years.

National Novel Writing Month, also widely known as NaNoWriMo, is a month long challenge for budding writers to compose 50,000 words in 30 days. Last year over 250,000 writers around the world took part in the month-long event. It all begins with an idea, the desire to get 50,000 words together in a novel and finish by November 30.

Pinal County has an author who participated in NaNoWriMo and had a published novel from his efforts. Caris O’Malley wrote The Egg Said Nothing in 2010. This book is available from the Pinal County Library District.

Six Pinal County libraries will be celebrating NaNoWriMo.
  • Apache Junction Public Library
  • Vista Grande Library
  • Eloy Santa Cruz Library
  • Florence Community Library
  • Maricopa Public Library
  • Superior Public Library
