In a nutshell, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. This is the insane attempt by writers around the world to produce a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. Last year more than 200,000 writers participated.
The only reason I am writing about it in this space is that Roasters has always been a center of writing activity and this year it promises to be even more prominent because several workers and customers have already committed to the activity. Many more have expressed an interest, but haven’t said for sure that they will make the attempt.

During the month of November, we will be offering special drink prices to participating writers, especially on Sunday afternoons when JD, who is writing this year, has agreed to hang around as long as there is interest and drinks being consumed. Those of you who are not writing are also encouraged to come to the shop for moral support of those of us of questionable sanity.
