Writer Prepared To Begin 30-Day Novel Writing Challenge

Good evening!  Only twenty-seven hours, nineteen minutes, and five seconds until the writing madness begins!  I have my idea and character profiles…I am ready to face the blank pages as I craft the first draft of my novel over the 30-Days of November!  I am a declared  “Pantser” and eagerly anticipating the journey that my characters will present this November.

This year I was torn between two (2) books as my inspiration whilst preparing to take the NANOWRIMO challenge this November 2018!  I couldn’t choose between either, so I dug into both, and will utilize the great advice provided in Dr. Kevin Cordi’s “Playing With Stories”  – and –  Sol Stein’s “How To Grow A Novel.”

I would love to hear about the authors that have provided you with writing inspiration for NANOWRIMO 2018! Happy Writing!

Writer Attempts 30-Day Novel Writing Challenge for Sixth Consecutive Year

Good Evening!  It’s that time of year again! National Novel Writing Month – NANOWRIMO – On November 1st at 12:00am my fingers will be glued to my keyboard, as I attempt the NANOWRIMO challenge of writing a 50,000 word count novel in just 30 days for my sixth (6th) consecutive year!  Each year, at this exact point in time, I ask myself this same question, “Okay, why I am attempting NANOWRIMO again this year?”  And, yes, each year I laugh at myself as I answer back – “…because I cannot NOT do this! NANOWRIMO is in my soul!”  Actually, by ‘actively’ participating in NANOWRIMO for the past five (5) consecutive years – I’d like to share just three of the benefits I have gained:

1) NANOWRIMO has given me the confidence to DECLARE myself “A Writer!” –

2) NANOWRIMO has made me a better writer by allowing me to build a strong foundation for my stories!

3) NANOWRIMO has allowed me to ‘grow’ in my writing skills, by enhancing the range – depth that I can go with character development!

I feel joyful as the calendar gets closer to November 1st, knowing that I will be joined by over 300,000 writers around the globe, who will be taking this same challenge!  To all of my fellow writers, I have faith that each of us has the ability to cross the Winner’s line!  Much success to each of you!  Happy Writing!
