What does a novelist look like?

Would you know a novelist walking down the street if you saw one, unless it was a famous one? I spent yesterday in scruffy jeans and a billowy (but cool) top. Ideally I’d love to wear pyjamas, and I guess they’d be a good indicator of a novelist: bit eccentric but means well? Or should I wear black polo tops and imposing glasses?

I ask these questions as yesterday someone looked shocked when I said I’d written a novel. Guess I don’t have the novelist’s look, but it was fun convincing her that I had – answering the synopsis and page/word count questions. I could natter about the process of writing all day.

Perhaps there’s another book in there? Not until after TNM is complete, and my “Manual” has begun.
