Sweet Victory!

I know it has been a while since I posted anything on my blog (or any social media for that matter). I apologize for disappearing, but I hope you’ll agree my temporary hiatus was for a good cause. During April I took part in Camp NaNoWriMo, which is always a great motivator for me to get lots of writing done. Sometimes I don’t get anywhere near my goal. This time I blew right past it. I managed to get over 35,000 words written during camp, and an additional 10,000 written in the first week of May. It is the most successful camp I’ve had to date, and I’m extremely excited to announce that have finished yet another book!

The first draft is now off to beta readers for review. I don’t have a specific publish date in mind yet, but stay tuned. For those who have been patiently waiting, the Wind Rider Chronicles will be growing again very soon.

In the meantime, I’ll work on bringing some life back into my blog. Thanks for being patient!

Is it possible to complete a novel in one month?

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is almost here! Today I’m sharing a post from author Jean M. Cogdell on whether or not it is possible to complete a novel in one month.

I’m not a particularly fast writer, and I have a very demanding schedule, so the thought of writing 50,000 words in just one month is very daunting to me. So far I’ve only been successful with Camp NaNoWriMo where you can set smaller goals, and even adjust them as you go along. Yet I know people do this every year, and I’m going to give it a try–with some helpful tips from Bridget at Now Novel! If you’re planning to join me in November, be sure to check these out.

If I succeed next month, I will have the next book in my Wind Rider Chronicles series nearly complete. I know my readers are eagerly waiting! But even if I don’t succeed, I’ll have more words written than I would have if I’d never participated, right? So really, I can’t lose.

If you’ve managed this amazing feat, I’m impressed.

But not me, I break out in a sweat just thinking about writing a novel from beginning to end in thirty days. 

Emails are pouring in for NaNoWriMo. Have you signed up?

Well, it’s that time of year, and the deadline is fast approaching. Almost time to start your engines, I mean computers. (Continue reading…)
