Our final October preparatory workshop is tonight at the downtown Naperville Barnes and Noble (up in the cafe in the second floor). Joe (Corrupted_Flame) and I will be hosting the event. What do we have planned?
Well, I wish I could say we have everything planned to a T but the truth is that this week has been really, really busy for me AND it is difficult to plan out an event like this where there will be quite a mix of folks coming: experienced WriMo’s with notebooks of notes and outlines and new novelists who may only have character and setting determined. I was also very impressed with what we were able to achieve through our energetic discussion last Saturday. I now believe that we can rely on the energy of the participants (and these events have never failed–it is remarkable how much energy is present when you get a bunch of writers together) and our collective experience and creativity to make magic happen.
Everyone who comes to our workshop tonight will leave better prepared for NaNo.
Also, if I get a little time, I’ll try to print out a mindmap of notes I prepared from three books on novel writing I read and was very impressed with in September.
Hope to see many of you tonight!
