What Am I Doing (and Not Doing) in November

cork-w-books-300x300 NonFicNov

I’ll be participating in Non-Fiction November! Co-hosted by Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness, Leslie at Regular Rumination, Becca at I’m Lost In Books, and Katie at Doing Dewey, it promises to be a month-long celebration of non-fiction books of all types. There will be weekly blog topics; a few of which I might take part in, but mostly I’ll be reading.

  • Finish Magic And Mystery: The Incredible Psychic Investigations Of Houdini And Dunninger
  • River City Empire: Tom Dennison’s Omaha by Orville D. Menard
  • A Concise History of the Black Arts and Those Who Dared to Practice Them by Robert Masello DNF
  • The Unpersuadables by Will Storr
  • Sleights of the Mind by Stephen L. Macknik & Susana Martinez-Conde

(Change of plan on my later titles after a trip to the library…)

What I won’t be doing is NaNoWriMo. I have a pretty good plan for working on In Need of Luck for the rest of the year with goals that allow leeway for editing and rewriting. Yes, I could be a NaNo rebel, but the point of NaNoWriMo then becomes pure socializing. October has been a month of pared-back online social interaction and it’s been really kind of nice. I’m working on not allowing social stuff, even fun social stuff, to zap my energy.
