“November is National Novel Writing Month where scribblers all across the planet commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days (NaNoWriMo).
Personally, I prefer to pile up my words bit-by-bit throughout the year. So I’m usually pretty oblivious to the event.
This year, though, I talked with Jane at Appletree Books who told me about their special promotion for NaNoWriMo. For the third year, now, the independent bookstore is inviting writers of all ages, all formats, and all genres in the Greater Cleveland area to be one of their featured artists of the month by writing in the storefront windows.
Huh…writer under glass. It sounded intriguing, so I’m going to give it a go on November 26 & 27 from 10am-12pm. I’ll no doubt be working on my latest novel, Article 15.
Stop on by if you get a chance and wave–but don’t tap on the glass.”
