Êtes-vous Nanoteur / Nanoteuse?

[Photo source.] 

This week's Sundays in Paris photo should have some kind of bookish theme. Why? 

Call me crazy, but I signed up to participate in NaNoWriMo this year (click here for an explanation in French; the NaNoWrimo site is also available in French).

Care to join me?

For links that might help those creative juices start flowing, visit my friend K.'s blog post about gearing up for the big kick-off this Sunday (we get an extra hour to write our little hearts out - daylight savings!).

For an inspiring article by Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Junot Diaz for all writers who have ever struggled with writing, see here or check out pp. 190-191 of the November edition of O magazine.

Folks in the states are having kick-off events and write-ins all over the place.  For Paris folks, info for "la kick-off party" can be found at, and "write-in officiels" will be happening on Tuesday Nov. 3 at Starbucks Capucine (Paris IIe) from 3-10 p.m., and at Starbucks Pépinières (Paris VIIIe) at various times on the 7th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 14th, and 15th. Check the NaNoWriMo site for details.  

À vos plumes, tout le monde!
