With Chris Baty, founder of National Novel Writing Month

Chris Baty

Chris Baty is a freelance writer and founder of National Novel Writing Month. His work has appeared in the Washington Post, the SF Weekly, and Lonely Planet guidebooks. His quest for the perfect cup of coffee is never-ending, and will likely kill him some day.

In this highly caffeinated interview, Chris explains:

  • What National Novel Writing Month is
  • Why the event attracts 60,000 masochists from around the world
  • How to sign up, and what you’re getting yourself into if you do
  • Why it’s okay to produce a bad novel during the event
  • How people throw lots of parties before, during, and after the event
  • Why it’s unlikely he’ll be sending his winged monkey enforcers after you
  • How to have the time of your life even if you don't write fiction
