November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Door County Library, NaNoWriMo.org and Write On Door County are bringing a special free program to help aspiring novelists receive support and inspiration. For five Tuesday evenings, Brett Reetz will provide participants with a comprehensive road map to follow when writing a novel.
Each session covers a different topic including: “The Discipline of Writing, Novel Crafting, Resources and Basics” (Nov. 6), “Character and Conflict” (Nov. 13), “Point of View, Pace, Story Arc and Plot” (Nov. 20), “Voice, Details, Technique and Style” (Nov. 27), with a final session on “Editing, Publishing, Agents and Markets” (Dec. 7).
Originally from Chicago, Reetz has resided in Door County for almost 20 years. He has always viewed the writing of fiction to be a quest much superior to his other job, being a lawyer. Reetz released his book, Swimmer, a thriller/suspense novel, in 2011.
NaNoWriMo is celebrating its 20th year of encouraging creativity, education and the power of the imagination through the largest writing event in the world. Each session is held at the Sturgeon Bay Library, 6:30-8 pm. The programs are free and open to all. For more information visit doorcountylibrary.org/nanowrimo.
