There are only 4 days left until November, which is NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH! Yay!
Every year, I encourage students and faculty at Indian Creek to join in NaNoWriMo. There are plenty of reasons to try to write a novel in 30 days:
- Daily writing can be cathartic/exciting/inspiring
- Doing NaNoWriMo is a good way to purge your mind of all those stories that have been building up for the past year
- Giving your inner-editor a month-long vacation may be difficult, but it’ll allow your inner-creative-director to really shine
- You will enjoy such pride when you complete a month-long commitment to yourself!
If you have any desire to write a novel, try NaNoWriMo! It’s a low-stakes challenge that can help you unleash your inner-novelist, bring you closer to other writers, and make you look super impressive to your friends and family.
The Upper School Library will be celebrating the beginning of National Novel Writing Month with a Kick-Off Party on Monday, October 31, from 3:35 to 4:35. Hope to see you there!
An anonymous artist modified a framed poster of a To Kill a Mockingbird book cover in the computer lab. It now says “To Kill a Mockingjay.” Have you read the Hunger Games series? Someone is letting their fan flag fly!
