Ready, Set, Novel!

When: Thu., Nov. 10, 7 p.m. 2011

Depending on how you look at it, the Berkeley-born National Novel Writing Month is either a vital, deadline-induced chance to test the limits of your creativity or a monthlong exercise in masochism. Make it more of the former and less of the latter with help from Chris Baty, Lindsey Grant, and Tavia Stewart-Streit of the National Novel Writing Month organization, whose new book, Ready, Set, Novel!, runs through the entire novel-writing process, from the original brainstorm to the final edit. Get your advice, inspiration, and commiseration at Books Inc. Alameda (1344 Park St.) on Thursday, Nov. 10. 7 p.m., free. 510-522-2226 or
