To Write or Not to Write...

journal & penNovember is National Novel Writing Month! Some of you might already be hard at work, racing to reach 50,000 words by the end of the month. Most of you are probably like me, putting your novel off for another year because November is too much to handle on its own. The writing process is fairly solitary and, for those of us who aren’t deeply engrained in the art, shrouded in mystery. What drives a person to give shape to their imagination and pour out their soul on paper? This question has been studied in film for many years and, whether the movie revolves around real authors or fictitious characters, the answers are as creative, varied and inexplicable as the writers.

Whether you are working on your novel and need inspiration, or you need a break from November stress, browse the HCPL catalog and request an authorial movie today!
