Muddling through...

Wow. I can't believe that there's only 1 week left! I'm hoping to use this long weekend to do some catch up writing. And even though I feel stuck right now in my plotting, doggone it, SOMETHING is going on that page! Maybe I should visit the Little Jar of Big Ideas...
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Day 3

Wow, here we are, 3 days in! Hope it's going well for you!
Have you spent some time at the NaNoWriMo site ( Be sure to check it out! They've got all sorts of helpful and fun stuff there - pep talks, videos, and the forums are a great source of information and support. While you're there, check into the "Regions" area. The Naperville region has many Write Ins scheduled at different times and venues throughout the area during the month. And if you're looking for a great spot to write, don't forget the Library! You can't beat the tables along the wall for a great view! See you there!

NaNoWriMo Day 1

Well, here we are folks! Day one, and another blank page! I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a bit intimidated. I've noodled around with the thought of writing SOMETHING for years, but can never pin myself down to what. So, I'm plunging in, gonna take the challenge. I may not make it to 1667 words every day, but my goal is to write every day this month.
How about you?

Welcome to Messenger Public Library's Writer's Blog!

Welcome to Messenger Public Library's writer's blog! We're so excited to be participating in this year’s National Novel Writer's Month, and we hope that you are too.

What is NaNoWriMo? It's a national event held in the month of November to encourage all aspiring writers to get down to business by taking on the challenge to write 50,000 words (about 175 pages) of original material in the 30 days of November.

Join the NaNoWriMo community in two ways: first by signing up on the NaNoWriMo site at While you're there, be sure to check out some of the fun stuff on the site!

Next, submit your rants and raves, successes and failures to our mediated blog page. At the very least, keep us posted on the number of pages written.

Join us at the Library for a Kick Off celebration on November 1 from 6-8 pm. We'll help you register, offer suggestions and encouragement, plus provide treats. We've got lots of space here at the Library for you to work, or you can write and submit files 24/7 from the comfort of your home.
