NaNoWriMo LogoNational Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

Author Brett ReetzDoor County Library,, and Write On are bringing you a special free program to help you get started, get support, and get inspired!

Each Tuesday evening, Brett Reetz will provide you with a comprehensive road map to follow when you are writing a novel. A lawyer in Northeast Wisconsin and originally from Chicago, he enjoys alpine skiing, scuba diving, fishing, hunting and, of course, writing. He has always viewed the writing of fiction to be a quest much superior to his other job. Reetz's first book, Swimmer (a thriller/suspense novel) was published by Itasca Books in 2011.
