In this episode of Writers’ Cafe, guest host Amy Boutell and guest author Allegra Bottlik talk NaNoWriMo–National Novel Writing Month–which starts November 1. If you’re going to be cranking out 50,000 words in a month, you really don’t want to start a few days late. Amy provides some inspiring prompts to help you get started and suggests ways modify NaNoWriMo so it helps you reach your less than novel-length writing goals. Allegra Bottlik is a graphic novelist who participates in NaNoWriMo and explains why sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand (or sometimes more) words. You can follow Allegra’s work at PerfectlySaneComic.com. Read more at the National Novel Writing Month website, where you can sign up (gasp!) to participate! Co-hosted by Chryss Yost, Santa Barbara Poet Laureate.
