Despite NaNoWriMo being online this year, the Palouse Writers Guild is still encouraging local writers to connect and share. We have partnered with the Potlatch Public Library and Troy Public Library to host “Motivational Mondays” for those community members who wish to participate in a “curbside” NaNoWriMo program. Budding writers will receive the emotional support needed to see them through the end of the month by picking up grab bags to keep them motivated.
Each Monday in November a new NaNoWriMo packet will be available for pick-up at the Potlatch and Troy libraries. Each motivational pack includes:
- Games/writer crafts
- Novel planning worksheets
- Words of encouragement/advice from local published authors
- Small candy/snack
- NaNoWriMo swag
In addition, an official NaNoWriMo chart will be displayed on one of the library’s corkboards, where participants can update their progress and see how they are stacking up against other writers in the community. Those writers who finish the month will be rewarded with a TGIO (Thank God It’s Over) Pack which will include celebratory items and a FREE BOOK* compliments of BookPeople of Moscow.
