Enjoy music and art. Be amused. Get scared. It's time for fun in Eureka Springs.

Hit and Misdemeanor two nights only!

The comedy play, Hit and Misdemeanor, is sure to be a hit Nov. 5 and 6 at the Eureka Springs High School Cafeteria. Curtain time is 7 p.m.

Enjoy a great crime-comedy romp as the school cafeteria is transformed into Glowworm Productions' Studio "B" for an evening of fun as two female TV cops find themselves in real danger.

It's NaNoWriMo time!

November is National Novel Writing Month, better known as NaNoWriMo. On November 1, some 200,000 people will start an incredible month-long journey of creative spirit and too much caffeine. The goal is to finish a 50,000-word novel in 30 days by quashing the inner editor in all of us and releasing the muse.

Eureka Springs has its own NaNoWriMo group, complete with an event kick-off, area write-ins and a thread in the NaNoWriMo forums for discussion and commiseration. For info and sign up, go to
