NaNoWriMo Pep Talk with David Paris Singer-Carter
Published on Monday, November 3, 2014 by First, let me get this out of the way: I participated in last year's NaNoWriMo, and finished on time. One thing lead to another, and some excellent people thought what I wrote was good enough to publish - so I did. I feel very lucky and grateful. Okay, now the meat. That daunting mountain that is NaNoWriMo can, I know, appear near impossible to climb. But it tru...
NaNoWriMo: Journey to Publication by Stuart Aken
Published on Friday, December 13, 2013 by Struggling over uneven ground, I leapt across huge footprints in the mud, and stumbled on a dinosaur. I think it was a diplodocus: definitely vegetarian, otherwise I wouldn’t be around to tell the tale. But, as soon as I reached my cave, I painted symbols on the walls so future generations might understand my world. Okay: a tall tale. But I really have been writi...
My Road to Publication by Claudia Connor
Published on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 by "But there was light at the end of the tunnel. In August 2013, I signed with a new agent and within days accepted a two book deal with Penguin Random House. From my lowest low to my highest high in less than a week." Once upon a time...a friend told me, with a rather strange expression on her face, that not everyone hears voices. Or makes up stories in their head. ...
130,000 Reasons I Gave The Fox Away by Arlene Radasky
Published on Sunday, November 17, 2013 by In 2004 through 2008, during and after writing The Fox, I had dreams of a big publishing house picking it up and having it reach at least the top half of the New York Times best seller list. Don't we all? Well, after a friend and I attended the 22nd Southern California Writer’s conference in San Diego, Feb. 2008, my hopes and dreams changed. The first reason was...
NaNoWriMo Success: Adrianne James
Published on Friday, November 15, 2013 by I found out about National Novel Writing Month by accident four years ago. I was big into fanfiction at that point and really wanted to test my abilities to create my own characters from scratch. I told my best friend about it and she joined in to. I found that when I have a goal, something to 'win', I kick butt. I think it's the competitive streak in me. Even if it's...
Like performance art, but the nudity’s only metaphorical- except when it isn’t.
Published on Thursday, November 14, 2013 by This'll be my third year doing NaNo, and each year I have to push a little harder to challenge myself. I've always been a firm believer that practice makes proficiency. You push your work forward and develop your voice by writing as much as you can, not only when the inspiration hits. To that end, for years I devoted myself to writing short stories. I scouted th...
NaNoWriMo: The Long and Winding Road with Sherry D. Ramsey
Published on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 by I first discovered National Novel Writing Month (fondly known as NaNoWriMo or the Month of No Sleeping) in October of 2002, and was immediately drawn to the challenge. I'd written one novel-length project prior to this, much more slowly! Despite having both a seven-year-old and a two-year-old in the house, I was determined to succeed, and managed (mostly by way of get...
NaNoWriMo: Room for Turtles and Hares by Jane Ann McLachlan
Published on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by Last year, November 2012, I decided to participate in NaNoWriMo for the first time. I knew many writer friends who had entered it previously and loved it, and I wanted to try it for myself. At the least, I expected that writing in tandem with other writers would strengthen my will-power to work on my manuscript daily. Yes, my manuscript. There are many ways to...
NaNoWriMo: Answer the Muse’s Call by Christina Weigand
Published on Saturday, November 2, 2013 by What can I say that will inspire all you brave souls to push your way through all the roadblocks to the end of the month? I’m just the same as you, staring at the blank screen or sheet of paper wondering how I’ll get through the month. I know this is my eighth year and three of my NaNo projects have been published. But on November first I am in the same place as y...
NaNoWriMo Success Stories: Lisa Carlisle
Published on Friday, November 1, 2013 by Hi, I'm Lisa Carlisle, an author who writes paranormal erotic romance, mysteries, and military romance. I’m here to share some of my experience with NaNoWriMo. As a working mom, it’s very difficult to find the time to write, especially at the end of a long work day. When I’m working on a project, I set a 500 word daily goal, which isn’t much compared to oth...
