Mrs. Dalloway's BookstoreBerkeley, CA 94705

I will be sitting in the front window of Mrs. Dalloway’s books in Berkeley, writing. For real.

For California Bookstore Day, Chris Baty (the genius behind NaNoWriMo) and I will be in conversation at Mrs. Dalloway’s books. When the discussion is over I will be escorted to the front window–hopefully spared the shock collar–to write for a little while. Since I will be showered, dressed somewhat nicely, not glowering into the distance, and hopefully not talking to myself, this will be more of a dramatic re-creation than a reflection of my true process. But I am actually going to be writing. Hope to see you there!

More info:

4:00 p.m. Chris Baty, author of No Plot? No Problem! and Ready, Set, Novel! A Writer’s Workbook, and founder of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), waxes eloquent on fiction writing, in conversation with Scott Hutchins, author of A Working Theory of Love.

5:00 p.m. Scott Hutchins writes live in our window! Observe the tricks of the trade in action!

P.S. I’m hoping the event will be a little like this:
