Announcing my very first blogfest, the Ode-athon! Simulcasting here and at my writers blog, which for some reason is called Tony Laplume, the date is November 2, 2013 and you are all invited. (You may also participate on any day of the regular week that follows. But you will have to do so while writing your NaNo. At least this one you can write ahead of time.)
The Ode-athon is a call to write about your favorite writers. Here I'm thinking specifically of authors, although I'm already planning to cheat myself with a cartoonist in my writers dozen (somewhere around fourteen). You can choose one or you can go with as many as you can hit without exhausting yourself. The idea is to tell us about the writers you read most passionately, the ones who have affected you the most, and perhaps even inspired you.
The last perk I have to share is that on 11/9 I will include a recap post about the whole thing.
Here's the sign-up list:
