National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. 

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

Sign up for the Marin, California, USA group here.


Sunday, October 15:
Join Sausalito NaNoWriMo Liaison, Elizabeth Menozzi’s prep session! Doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a “Plotter” or a “Pantsers” — come join me for some writing exercises geared toward planning out your novel. We’ll do some brainstorming, and cover character development, plot, and world-building. I’ll also have stickers to give away.

Sunday, October 29:
NaNoWriMo kick-off party! We can’t start writing yet, but we can meet up and introduce ourselves! Come meet your fellow Marin Writers and share a little about yourself and what you plan to write in November. Snacks will be provided, but BYO covered drink. Folks new to NaNoWriMo can ask questions about National Novel Writing Month and find out how it works and what to expect.

Sundays, November 5 – 26:
Join us for a month of literary abandon! Participants will gather in the library’s meeting room to begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. We”ll meet every Sunday of the month: November 5, 12, 19, & 26.

Sunday, December 3:
TGIO Party – Come join your fellow Marin Writers to celebrate our NaNoWriMo writing achievements! No matter how much or how little you wrote during NaNoWriMo, you’re on your way to writing a novel! Bring your own beverage (covered containers preferred) and a treat to share with the group. We’ll talk about our NaNoWriMo experiences and celebrate our achievements. For those who are interested, feel free to come prepared to share a paragraph or a page from your novel that you are particularly proud of. But, don’t worry, there won’t be any critiquing, just celebrating! 🙂
