Happy National Novel Writing Month!
This is what you missed at the #NaNoWriMo Readathon at the Bowie Branch Library Saturday, November 3rd:
free “I <3 Books” T-shirts
All brought together by a phenomenal librarian!
Where are the photos of the event and my display? You ask.
Well, snapping pics never seems to make it onto my mental to-do list until AFTER an event has ended. (A chronic oversight that’s likely Freudian in nature.) Blame my camera averse inner hermit, who also didn’t want to video record my segment. But my parents* (the same people who frequently call me about “fixing” the solid blue screen on their television) did. The blurry photo of me standing in profile leaning forward with my shirt baggy at the waist (SO flattering!) is their contribution as my self-appointed film crew. (It was a very good natural hair day though.)
All of the writers were captivating as they read excerpts of their impressive work and discussed their creative development quandaries. Their work was gritty, poignant, humorous, melancholy, provocative, emotionally layered, and a whole array of engaging elements.
Thank you to the librarian who coordinated the Readathon, all of the talented participants, and the supportive attendees who were such enthusiastic listeners and gracious beta testers as players of Tic Tac Trope. Everyone contributed to making it a fun event.
Until the next event,
I <3 Booklovers,
