Thursday, October 25
6:30-8:00 p.m.
Oak Room 

Always wanted to write a novel, but didn't know where to start? Or maybe you have written one, but you are looking for a way to do it faster?

5-time National Novel Writing Month winner Andi Erickson will share with you tips and tricks for getting started, plotting (or not!) your story, and finishing that Great American novel in just 30 days.

Andi Erickson is the Library’s Program Coordinator and a “Wrimo” since 2002. It wasn’t until 2005 that she discovered the Truths of Writing: "Keep the hand moving" and "The first draft is always bad." Her novels typically involve supernatural elements and lots of explosions. She has a Master’s degree in Japanese literature, and has only once tried to write a novel based on classical Japanese fiction.
