Former UT provost, William McMillen will be our special guest at this week’s NaNoWriMo Write-In session, Tuesday, November 18.
William McMillen has published both fiction and non-fiction. In addition, he has self-published a series of Christmas books for the past five years that have been privately distributed to friends and family. He has been told that all of his writing is brilliant (but he’s heard that mostly from friends and family). Nevertheless, he promises that if you listen to him closely, you will have your novel published within weeks, a month, or maybe two or three years. He will share with you secrets about writing and publishing your novel that you’ll never hear anywhere else! But you’ll be sworn to secrecy, so you’ll have to show up or you’ll be literally left out in the cold. And, to end an invigorating half-hour talk he will answer the following question that you’ve all wondered about: Why is the beginning of a novel usually better than the end of a novel?
If you can, please stop by and see our special guest, Bill McMillen — whether or not you are a registered “Wrimo” this year!
P.S. We had a great time with guest Susan Parks last week. Please see my special update on that post.
