Pssst…Wanna Write A Novel?

By Leah Jones

Guess what? You can.

Ever read a book you loved and longed to create the same magic? Ever read a book you loathed, and knew you could write something so much better?

Of course you have. Get ready, your chance is coming up.

November is National Novel Writing Month, your opportunity to join thousands of other aspiring novelists in creating a 50,000-word first draft of the novel that’s kicking around inside you, dying to come out.

As with any project, it helps to have the right tools, and October is the perfect time to assemble your writer’s toolbox. Stuff like character ideas, plot outlines (or none), doing enough research to get you started, but not enough to bog you down.

On Wednesday, October 1, join me, Musa romantic suspense author Susan Rae, and independent mystery author Caryl Dierksen at the Crystal Lake Public Library for tips and strategies to develop your story and characters.

We start at 7 p.m., the program is free, but you must register in advance. Visit and select the Calendar tab.

You’ve thought about it. Make this the year you do it. See you there!
