November is National Novel Writing Month, and participating writers across the country are scrambling to meet the deadline. They have to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

The prize is an online printable certificate, the pride of accomplishment, and lessons learned from the experience.

During the month, writers sometimes get together for a write-in, usually at a coffee shop. That was the case in Rapid City Wednesday night, when three women met at Dunn Brothers.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks dropped in on them to check on their progress.
