Creating Anew

Creating Anew

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) starts in two days. The goal is to write a 50,000-word novel in a month. I’ve completed it in the past, and I’ve come close to completing it, and I’ve accomplished my own goals (one year I wrote a middle-grade book one year that wasn’t 50K words, but I finished […]

Editing…Again

I’ve been working with an editor on my Dragons manuscript, in the hopes that I will finally get it to a place where someone (preferably the house this lady is with) wants to publish it. I’ve gone back and forth with her several times, making some major changes, and with each round of edits, it […]

And Zoe, how’s your obsession coming? Okay, okay so my 7 pages may not seem like much, especially for “revising”, but […]

NoWriMo in March?

Impatient for November’s National Novel Writing Month? Some of us writers are! So on Writing.com, a group of writers get together and runs one every March. (If you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, check this out!) But we run ours a bit more informally. Unlike the official rules of NaNo, you can write on an […]
