National Write Your Own Story Day: Books for Aspiring Authors

Image title

It turns out there’s quite a lot of “National Fill-in-the-Blank Days”, and a good number of them are applicable to books and libraries–we love that! March 14th just so happens to be National Write Your Own Story Day, so we’re not going to toss up the opportunity to share a blog post about this one. 

Whether or not you consider yourself to be a writer, everyone has a unique story to tell. Stories are the one thing everyone possesses that brings us all together, but stories are also the distinguishing factor that sets everyone apart. Stories serve multiple purposes: to entertain, to educate, to inform, and even to innovate. And at the foundation of each is imagination! National Write Your Own Story Day encourages people to feel inspired to share their stories, not just through writing, but through any medium that can be used as a form of self-expression. Since we’re a library, however, we’ll focus on writing. 

If you’re an aspiring author, or just like to write as a hobby but still want to refine your craft, we have cultivated a list of books from our collection that will not only help you become a better writer, but help you decide what genre of writing you’d like to pursue (if you’re unsure of that). Because why wait until NaNoWriMo in November when you can jumpstart your writing career now?

Take a gander at these latest books we have–some of which are for our young writers–on the written word, plus a few oldies but goodies: 

This is a pretty hefty list already and since we can’t cover every kind of writing here, we recommend visiting the 808s in our nonfiction sections to find more books on the topic! These sections cover blogging and online writing as well!

Good luck, and happy writing!
