Vroman's Pasadena 11-26-11 -- Tomorrow is gonna be ROCKIN'!
Special Holiday storytime featuring The Grinch! 10:AM
NaNoWriMo Write-in 9:30am - 12:30pm
Come on NaNoWriMos!
Whether you are going to make the 50K words or NOT! Whether you are a Rebel or a “Proper”!
This (despite all the trials and tribulations that invariably happen to me in November) has been the most tremendous November of my life and I wanna see all you NaNoWriMo people in my area!
I want to breath the same air you are breathing and bask in the creativity, expression, and passion for being that exudes from you.
All I can give you in return is one of my crooked smiles, but I tell you now, I've got plenty of them, and tomorrow is gonna ROCK!
On top of the write-in that is being touted, they will have at 10:AM THE GRINCH at their holiday storytime (and YES! I will have my trusty Fidget and Widget with me to have someone take a photo of me with The Grinch!)! I'm not missing that! Spoken-word storytellers, whether reading or telling are part of my lifeblood and this is gonna be a DAY!
I’m going to finish the 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo! ::jumps up and down, twirling in the air and on the ground::
I’m doing it as a NaNoWriMoRebel.
It has been worth every laugh I’ve laughed, every tear I’ve shed, every growl I’ve growled as I moved toward my goal.
Admittedly not a NaNoWriMo proper goal — not working on one novel for 50,000 words.
My goal was simply, write 50,000 words on any of the 5 various subjects I set up.
In the process I have written one small piece on friendship I am so proud of it’s on my blog, with one of my crayon drawings. And it will be a performance piece as I present in spoken-word in the future.
In the process I have morphed the reason I tried NaNoWriMo last year when I was homeless and failed — to write something that would be an extension of my Homelessness Advocacy. That project has transformed into something spectacular in my life, and a taking of a job title. Well some people would call it a job title. I call it a life style: Performance Artist.
Also in the process I have met up with a wonderful journalist and creative writing guide.
In the process I have taken a drastic health situation and re-framed it into something that would not have happened without the health situation I’m attempting to turn around because I didn’t have the guts to let go of everything else in my world to go for my dreams.
In the process I have lived more in this almost complete 30 days of November (we’re actually on day 25 at the moment) than I have in a lifetime.
But I digress — I will have the 50,000 words by 8:pm Pacific Time November 29.
To celebrate that I am going for an outing tomorrow. I will be exhausted by the end of it, that’s a given … and you know what?
Bring it ON!
I’m going to be on buses and trains one way for about 2 hours. That’s 4 hours of round-trip travel time. I'm preparing for it by resting all of today.
I say again, Bring it ON!
I will be at the NaNoWriMo Write-in from 9:30am-12:30PM at Vroman’s Bookstore to be with others like me:Those writing, those celebrating, those enmeshed with their life this November.
I’m celebrating the 50,000 words; my birthday this month, the fact that I was born in Pasadena, lived in Altadena/Pasadena for the majority of my life; and frequented Vroman’s as if it was my first home when I lived in the area.
Let’s ROCK IT at Vromans!
