November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short, when writers around the world attempt to complete a novel in a month. And every year, at least for the past several years, writers in Rapid City have joined in. A small group showed up this year for the kick-off, and SDPB's Victoria Wicks found them at a coffee shop, the traditional haven for creative writers.

The first Rapid City write-in is this Saturday, Nov. 5, at Dunn Brothers, from 2-4 p.m. Facebook also lists a Sioux Falls group meeting from 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays at Caribou Coffee.

If you want to join up, just show up. To learn how to participate nationally, go to http://nanowrimo.org/
