No Plot? No Problem! author comes to town

Well, the contest is on and I’ve logged in 1,574 words toward the 50,000 needed. If any of you Houston readers have decided to join in on the fun—I know a few of you have—you might want to think about attending Chris Baty’s booksigning later this month.

Chris Baty is the founder of the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and is making the rounds promoting his new book No Plot? No Problem! The book came out of his experience as founder and participant of the annual Nanowrimo event and is full of tips, tricks, and strategies to get that novel out of your mind and onto paper.

Here are the booksigning details:

If you’re looking for a local writer’s group, you might check the Thursday night group that meets weekly at the same Barnes and Noble. I understand several are also participating in the Nanowrimo Contest. The folks get together for critiques and shop talk. They also plan to visit with Chris on the 18th. For those of you in the northwest area, the Northwest Nanowrimo writers are planning a get together this Friday. I’ll post details tomorrow.

If you’re involved in this year’s Nanowrimo’s contest, Chris will also be meeting with the Houston contingent but I don’t have all the details. I’ll post them when I have them confirmed. Right now I have to conjure up the next scene on my way to fifty thousand words.
