I'M SO EXCITED THAT I CAN'T CLOSE MY MOUTH!!

Ahem. I just found out that Chris Baty, founder of NaNoWriMo and author of "No Plot? No problem!" is coming here to MIT on Saturday. Anyone who lives in the Boston/Cambridge area and adores this man should come. PM me for more details on how to get in and stuff.

*SQUEE*

Ok, my last post got up and walked off.

I posted earlier this morning that I'd signed up and that I'm Chatty there if anyone wants to friend me.

I didn't know posts grew legs :confused:

I signed up for it in 2002 & 2003.  I'm not doing it again.  I like being sane :p~

Hey all,

I just met Chris Baty a few hours ago. What a fun guy!

He had this awesome speech prepared and everything about why you should do NaNoWriMo, and he even convinced a few of my friends to do it.

I had my picture taken with him! I'm so excited! And he autographed my copy of "No Plot? No Problem!"

*is really looking forward to November even more now*

Lyric, I am so jealous!!  I wish that the university bookstore sold No Plot, No Problem... I might have to actually buy it off Amazon or some such with my own money!  What was the speech like?  Just how awesome was he??

The speech was basically the backstory of NaNoWriMo, followed by the reasons you should do it, accompanied by the main excuses people use to not do it and why those excuses are bunk. :hehe:

As for how awesome he was, he was pretty frakin' awesome. :D He's absolutely hilarious. I didn't know he would be such a great public speaker, I thought his genius was just in the emails and his book. Indeed, he's likable and persuasive in person as well. More so, perhaps.

It was so cool, my friend actually emailed him and organised the whole thing so that he would come here, and I was in the room an hour early with her, so I got to meet him before the crowds of people did. :) He's very tall. I didn't think he would be that tall.

No Plot? No Problem! is an amusing book, but since you've already done NaNo, I think you probably know all the material the book contains. It's really more for first-timers with no clue. I only bought it last week so that he could autograph it. :blush:

I've got so much going on right now, I don't know if I can even do this.  I've got a couple of idea floating around in the gray upstairs, but, nothing seems to be working right.  If I start it, I'll try to make the 50K, but, can't guarantee I'm gonna win this year.  Most of my time is spent trying to get a bunch of high schoolers to act on stage; just getting the majority of them to rehearsal would be good, right about now.
