Many writers describe themselves as either a plotter or a pantser. Plotters carefully chart their course with outlines before starting a novel. Pantsers (as you may have guessed) fly by the seat of their pants. As a paralegal and a blogger, I’m definitely a plotter (particularly if you count having 4 calendars to run your life). As a writer, I’m a pantser. While I concede that outlines can be valuable planning tools, they’re just not for me.
The great thing about Artown is that it’s set up to satisfy both the highly organized as well as the free-spirited. Held during the month of July, Artown is Reno’s city-wide celebration of the arts. Orderly souls can review the Artown calendar and plan their month accordingly. While certain events are ticketed and require some planning there are plenty of activities that are free for drop ins.
There are too many amazing exhibits and activities to pack into a single post, but I wanted to give a shout out to a couple of events:
