Earlier this year, I joined the Writers Junction, a new creative writing space in Santa Monica, and that's where I have been working on the new novel. It's turned out to be a wonderful and inspiring community of like-minded literary folks.
This Saturday, they are doing their first 24 Hour Literary Marathon - a full day of readings and appearances by writers, discussing fiction, non-fiction, TV writing and more. TEV favorite David Francis is among the readers, and at 4:30 (p.m., not a.m.) I will be participating on a panel about getting your first novel out there (and what to do differently with your second).
The details are all here. Hope you can wander by and say hello.
