Latest Additions November 1, 2010

This is a day that I will natter on and on about writing! Okay, maybe not on and on about writing, but at least one good natter! Why? Because of these three good reasons that are on my mind: 1) today’s posting is all about the latest additions to The Reading Room and those are written by RRPL’s own staff!, 2) today begins National Novel Writing Month in which you are challenged to write a book in 30 days!, and 3) Megan and I went to see Scott Westerfeld who is one hilarious author in person and a thoughtful author in print. See? All three things are about writers and/or writing! Ta-dah!

We’ll start at the end and work backwards, shall we? I’m not sure I would describe Mr. Westerfeld’s as light-hearted or humorous, but hearing his personal stories made me laugh-out-loud a bunch! He was, of course, asked about being a writer and suggested that if you want to write you should set up a daily scheduled time to write and then not over analyze what you’ve written until you’re done. I’m going to direct you to Megan’s Monday posting to read more about our adventure.

National Novel Writing Month is a chance, and a challenge, to get into that writing habit by people who really know what they’re talking about! If you’ve ever considered writing a book, this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for! I actually heard an author speak who found a publisher for her NaNoWrMo book and she’s onto a second series with multiple titles in print! True story! It’s free and it starts today, so get busy people!

Last but not least, here come the newest books added to The Reading Room:
Whiter than Snow by Sandra Dallas
The Wrecker by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott
Rocky Road by Rose Kent
32 Candles by Ernessa Carter
The Reversal by Michael Connelly

That’s a lot of words about words, isn’t it? And I hope you enjoy every single one!
