Art a GoGo Podcast #40 – Interview with Regina Kammer, Participant in the National Novel Writing Month

Show Notes:
Listen to the MP3 of podcast #40
(38.30 minutes)

Interview with Regina Kammer

In this episode, we have the pleasure of talking to Regina Kammer. Regina is a fellow art lover, art historian, and participant in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, is an unusual approach to novel writing. The goal is to write a 50,000-word novel during the month of November. Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output: It’s all about quantity, not quality.
