November is a busy month for many of us, as we prepare for the holiday season here at the end of the year. But November is also a month when many of us take new steps (or leaps, or bungee jumps) with our writing! Waconia Writers Group has a full month planned for writer support and opportunities to exercise our craft!
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5
Waconia Writers’ Group Meeting for November
10:30 AM, Waconia Library, Magazine Corner
Our regular first-Saturday-of-the-month meeting, to share what we’ve been working on. Need inspiration or a boost to get started on something? Here is our group-selected writing prompt: Write about an unforeseen event in your life, or an event that had an unexpected outcome. What was a surprise? Was it good or bad? What were the consequences (if any)?
MONDAYS IN NOVEMBER (7, 14, 21, 28)
WWG Write-Ins, Celebrating National Novel Writing Month
6:30-8:00 PM, Waconia Library, Magazine Corner.
It’s once again time to take on the annual challenge of writing the equivalent of a novel’s worth of words in November. Also known as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short), our group has sponsored our own events for this month-long write-a-thon in years past. We took a break in recent years, but we’re back! WWG members will be gathering every Monday evening in November to work on their writing projects, share resources/advice/camaraderie, and some of them might even immerse themselves in the challenge of writing 50,000 words in 30 days! Bring a project! Write! Enjoy some snacks and the company of your writing peers. Come when you can, stay as long as you want. You don’t have to be participating in NaNoWriMo (or writing a novel) to join in on the fun!
TBD – ACCC Literary Committee-sponsored event
Planning for a November get-together is still in the works! We are planning a social hour at Cuzzy’s in Chaska, date and time yet to be finalized.
