I’m really excited to start a new posting series about my writing world. I hope you’ll join me every Wednesday (because that fits with the alliteration) for this fun look inside my head and heart.
I’ll be posting about the writing and publishing journey with tips and information for you as well. I’ll also be posting about faces and places that represent my books and characters. It may be serious or silly, but it’s all aimed at letting you inside my world with the hope that you and I will get to know each other better as we chat in the comments and connect online.
Here we go!
This month I’m banging on the keys for NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. I thought this would be a great start to the new blog series. This super-challenge comes around every year in November, and this year the timing couldn’t be better for me. I’m working on a new novel and although I know I won’t have it finished by the end of the month, this 50,000 word writing goal would get me a good ways into the first draft.
I’m working on a sequel to my upcoming novel, The Lemonade Year. I love these characters so much, I just couldn’t stop writing them.
While I wait for The Lemonade Year to release in April of 2018, this is a really fun way to not have to say goodbye to these characters.
NaNoWriMo is a great way to get into the habit of writing at least a little every day. We all think we don’t really have time, but I bet if you took a good hard look at your day, you could probably find an hour where you could shut off Facebook (No offense Zuckerberg, we all know Count Facebook is Dracula’s second cousin twice removed) and pull up your novel and write. (I know I could.)
Writer challenge: It’s not too late to sign up! So you missed a few day, no worries. Better late than never. Join me and let’s get some words on the page! Find me and let’s connect as NaNoWriMo buddies!
Thanks for joining me!
