Gearing Up For NaNoWriMo!



The orange and red hues on the trees mark the beginning of my favorite season, fall. It also marks the prepping period for NaNoWriMo 2011. I’m excited to start my second NaNoWriMo challenge. Note cards with inspirational quotes and sheets of paper with story ideas and my research list cover every inch of my writing desk. The chaos focuses my attention on writing, instead of staring at the daydream-inducing empty spaces.

As November approaches, my blog schedule needs to slow down while I get into crazy writing mode. I will post once a week on Thursdays from now until December.

The new NaNoWriMo site is up. I’m heading over there soon to start inputting my mystery novel info. Stop by and add me to your buddy list, LauraMCampbell. I’m going to need a lot of support to win this year!

Now, I leave you with a poignant and funny article by Rebecca Makkai, “How To Find Your Story and Craft a Pitch in 10 Easy Steps (And You Can Even Do It Drunk!)".      


I would love to add you to my buddy list and hear what you’re planning to write this November. Leave your NaNoWriMo Username and your NaNo novel genre in the comments below.

Congrats on doing NaNoWriMo this year! Unfortunately because of my time committments to Cybils judging I can't participate this year. Instead I'm going to champion my blog friends and cheer them on all month long.
