What I'm Doing on Wednesday

Monday, November 10, 2008, 9:35 PM

This Wednesday at 1:00pm I shall be in Queen's University's Seamus Heaney Centre being interrogated by Ian Sansom in front of an audience of ... oh, I'm sure it'll be thousands. It's the first time I'll have done anything like this, and as someone whom Queen's University rejected twice, albeit for music courses, I feel a little bit of a charlatan. So, if you happen to be in the Belfast area this Wednesday, do come along and throw money/rotten fruit/insults at your discretion. I believe it's open to all.

One small confession, though. The author Q&A is organised as part of NaNoWriMo, which has much to do with why I signed up. And so far, my NaNoWriMo isn't going that well. :(

We weren't that mean, were we? And it's all good practice for all that promotional work you'll have to do next year... :)

Uh..... you're surprised? You wrote and finished a perfectly fine book without NaNo. Cut your losses, move on, and develop a managable writing schedule.

Regarding Nano, I applaud the participants, but it's not for me. Too frantic... So, I guess I'm with JD on this one.

stuart, don't let the sequel fears get to you. i'm nanoing 1k a day about, and very pleased with it. write however it comes and works for you, BUT write.

i'm writing through fear. and the spirit of nano (knowing so many others are writing) helps me. good luck! contracted sophomore novel blues--we all get them.

boy, do we.

So wish I could see your talk! Sorry the Nano-ing isn't going as planned. Hopefully a late November wind will kick up your writing sails.
