In Which I Gain Writer-Cred

“Writing: a scrupulous attempt to preserve something, to make something last–plucking a few exact fragments from the deepening void, leaving somewhere or other a furrow, a trace, a mark, a few signs.” - Georges Perec

My sister's friend's mom, who works at a library in my county's system I've never been to, knows a lady at that same library who is putting together an Event. And yes, the capitalization is important.

My sister's friend's mom mentioned me to this lady, and I have been invited to be a Formal Presenter at a Panel regarding NaNoWriMo, publication, and "my writing process" along with one other teenage author (who may or may not be "properly" published, which is a maybe I find a bit intimidating).

This Event is actually part of a series of programming designed to inform adults and teenagers about the writing and publication process, with a special focus on NaNoWriMo.

And I have been asked to Speak. I am a Panelist. I am a Presenter. I am a "Formal" Presenter. It is going to take some time to process this.



  1. Congratulations! That's really cool.

  2. That is so exciting! Congrats! :D

  3. Congrats! That is such an exciting Event to be participating in :)

    If you feel nervous, just remember to focus on the goals of the Event - I'm sure you can give a lot of insight into NaNoWrioMo for people who aren't familiar with it - and talking about the writing process is a lot easier than you would think, haha. You should definitely blog about how it went :D

  4. Thanks!

    I'm not nervous about actually talking about the stuff (yet...), it's just that stuff like this is the kind of thing I fantasize about when I have insomnia, haha.

    I just received a new email; it's going to be on October 22nd, and rest assured I'll be talking about it loads on here. :)


Talk to me.
