thorn in my side

                That’s right it’s National Novel Writing Month! 

     This year over 400,000 aspiring writers worldwide have taken on the challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in a month.  National Novel Writing Month is a non-profit organization who “believe stories matter.”

One of Fairfield Woods Branch Library’s very own library collection page- and now freshman in college- Mary Quinn, has participated in NaNoWriMo for the past several years.  And, her first year’s effort, Thorn in My Side, was published this Spring by Melange books-Fire and Ice YA division!  You can check out a copy of her fantastic book at the library.  And if you feel inspired, head on over to and find out how you can start to participate.
