  1. Good Afternoon Tobi:

    My name is Mark Gusack and recently wrote and published my first novel – a sci-fi titled Worlds Apart. I enjoyed your talk yesterday at the Drinko Library regarding your approach to writing. I particularly liked the ‘suck’ concept but will suffer regarding number 4 – who will be reading my books. They are not exactly going to be easy reading given the subject matter. If you’re wondering who I was at the meeting; I was the older gentleman sitting slightly to your right who turned down the chocolate. Actually, I love chocolate. I love it so much that I only eat chocolate that does not contain extenders like soy.

    So…I am interested in participating in the NaNOWriMo this November. I even have a potential plot that came to mind last night. However, I have a problem. I am now deep into the second book. I find that I need to keep to a strict schedule when writing to be effective and to maintain momentum. Attempting to complete an additional 50K words on a separate book appears to be a difficulty. I was thinking that I might be able to separate out part of the second book that is not yet written and use that as a vehicle for the 50k words? I can easily craft an introductory lead in and an ending that would ultimately fit into the larger work. And, I would be willing to attend many of the group writing events to show that I am writing fresh and not submitting previously finished text.
