Shining a spotlight on Wrimos, again

October 5, 2012

Oct 30 Update: Thanks to everybody who’s volunteered so far, and I believe I have enough signups to last me through the end of November. If you’ve just found your way here and you’re interested in being a potential alternate in case I need to substitute, by all means post a comment – I still haven’t gotten interviews back from some people who were sent their questions two and a half weeks ago. 😉

What the heck, it’s been over a month since I ran my last Ninja spotlights, and it looks as if there won’t be any Crusader or Campaigner spotlights this fall, so I’m officially launching Wrimo Spotlight 2012 season early. Throughout October and November, I hope to post nearly a score of short, fascinating interviews with writers who will be participating in National Novel Writing Month this year. If you’re interested, please comment here, (making sure to add an email address where I can reach you, if it’s not linked to your WordPress profile,) or email me at chrisken zero at gmail dot com. (Replace the zero, at, and dot as appropriate.)

What’s involved? Well, I’ll probably have a few stock questions about Nanowrimo that I’ll ask everybody, plus some sneaky and funny questions that I’ll pick randomly just for you. You can also take up to 200 words to shamelessly plug your website, your book, your twitter feed, or whatever, and include a small image (400*400 pixels, or I’ll shrink it down myself) to serve as a visual aid to your answers, help you promote something, or just add interest to the interview – but no photographs of yourself, please. Think outside the box!

I’ll hopefully be able to give everybody at least a week to answer their questions over email, but if you’re a Speedy Gonzales, that’ll get you posted sooner. And no, you do not have to have a blog or link to me on your blog; if you’re doing Nano and interested in filling out the interview, I’d love to spotlight you. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you all.


Nanowrimo preparation season has begun!

October 2, 2010

It’s official!!

The National Novel Writing Month website has rebooted itself and done the usual upgrade/facelift for the 2010 writing-novels-in-30-days season. I’m very excited.

I want to post more in the forums this year, if I can manage to find the time to.

I’m looking forward to watching new videos from the Office of Letters and Light crew.

I can’t wait to meet up again with more Nano-ers from the Hamilton area – and the ones that go to San Francisco for the Night of Writing Dangerously.

I think that my Nano-novel this year is going to be a modern fantasy, (urban fantasy, dare I say it,) with a hero who died young and was sent back to Earth by angels, using somebody else’s body to help fight back the forces of darkness. But this guy falls in love with a girl while he’s on his mission, and they decide to run away from his destiny, and things get a bit complicated from there. 😉

31 days now until the start of Nanowrimo…
