"I got very angry about the food industry reading Jonathan Safran Foer's excellent "Eating Animals." Now, a few years later, I'm bewildered and deeply worried byt he way one can be impressed and moved by a book and yet do absolutely nothing about one's indignation and simply put all the good arguments to one's side - frightening evidence of the impotence of books in the hands of fickle readers." - Alain de Botton, 1/27/13 Book Review

It's October, so you know what that means--NaNoWriMo is less than a month away!
Once again, we'll be hosting a series of pre-, during, and post-NaNo workshops and write-ins. So if you've ever wanted to write a book, the time is now. Join us for the frenzy.
Workshops begin Tuesday, October 9th.
The writing begins November 1st.
We always have snacks, and sometimes we wear funny hats. Because we're cool like that.
You can find last year's handouts and other goodies on my very own RaiderWriMo page.
(Already coming up with excuses about why you can't write a 50,000 word first-draft in November? I don't want to hear 'em. If I can do this 8 months pregnant and teaching an overload of classes, so can you!)
