“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.
(Also: OMG AHHHHHHHHH!!!)
