Suggested Soundtrack for this Post: November
Did you know that the dandy folks what decide which days are Days have decreed that the first Friday in November every year is Fountain Pen Day? It's time to curl up with everyone's favorite writing instrument and celebrate putting ink on paper in the sexiest way possible.
Don't have a fountain pen to call your own? These online retailers are a good source, but Illusive's Own CIO Mark is quite a penthusiast and would probably let you try out one the many, many, many pens in his collection. Maybe. If you ask nice. Did you wash your hands?
But whether it's a fountain pen, a biro, a brush, or a good old fashioned electronic tablet, you need a good comfortable word slinger, because November is the most writingest month of the year. We're here to help!
National Novel Writing Month is a great way to kick your creativity into gear. It's already a few days into the month, but we know you can do it! Rah! Rah! We'll even put Mark in a cheerleader outfit!!
Anyway, Mark has also done a few NaNoWriMo marathons himself, so we know how important it is to have advice, encouragement, and support while you create. Come on down to Illusive for all that! The Oddizens are hosting weekly NaNoWriMo Workshops in our new classroom space.
Every Saturday in November from 1-4PM.
If you can't make it to swap stories, share commiserations, learn strategies, and otherwise avoid staring at the screen blankly while the clock ticks away the whole entire month because you can't think of a single, solitary word, here are
