Swindon Central Library will host a month long challenge to see if the people of Swindon can write an entire novel during November.
This personal challenge is organised nationwide by non-profit organisation Office of Letters and Light and is run by volunteers in each town and city across the country.
Participants aim to write 50,000 words of original fiction (usually a novel) between 1 November and 30 November, with free events running throughout the month for people to write alongside other participants and offer each other support.
Swindon Libraries wrote on their website: “Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
“Nobody looks over your shoulder. Your writing can be as rubbish as you like. All you have to do is write 50,000 words in one month (that’s roughly 1667 words a day) and at the end … you’ll have a book. It’ll need work, sure, but you’ll have written it. And earned bragging rights for being a NOVELIST, which is a nifty title.”
