So if you didn’t already, please go read Carolyn Kellogg’s column responding to Laura Miller’s piece that you can read by going here.
My last blog post is a link to Carolyn’s piece.
I have never participated in NaNoWriMo, but Kellogg’s piece made me want to. And the haters, particularly the commenter who called Kellogg non-logical and juvenile (with his very own style of non-logical and juvenile hating), and the idea that there is any universe in which writers exist in absurd proportion to readers (I do not know a single writer who is not also an avid reader–reading, and lots of it, is essential to developing the craft), made my writerly little soul twitch with annoyance and frustration.
So I don’t know if we can join in late, but if we can, let’s do NaNoWriMo!
