November has been busy so far, between various political scandals, and teaching my first-ever writing workshop. I was at the lovely Tatamagouche Centre last weekend, with a group of eight or nine writers all interested in kick-starting their fiction-writing practise, many of them committing to the insanity that is NaNoWriMo. It was really great to be with people who were in the early, fevered stages of writing, their eyes shiny, their hair standing on end after every writing session. Really inspiring. And I may have, totally by accident, started writing something new.
The less said about that the better, at the moment.
Because there are busy Fallsy Downsies times upon us! My tour begins in just a few days. Wednesday, November 13, I launch in Truro at the library. The following week, I’m at the Keshen Goodman Library on Tuesday, November 19 and at King’s on Thursday, November 21, and I do hope you’ll come see me!
But before all that, the excellent Andrew Kaufman is coming to town, and you should meet me at the Spring Garden Road Library next Tuesday, November 12 at 7pm to hear him read from Born Weird, his latest and most amazing novel.
Can we call it a date?
