Writing Wednesday: July’s Camp is Almost Over!

July’s Camp NaNoWriMo session is almost over and I am not doing well.  Why?  My head isn’t as into it as I hoped.  Where is my head?  Sooooo many other places and most of it can be mentioned just yet.  It has to do with November’s plans, how to fill the 8 months between now andRead more

Big Announcement: My First Novel’s Publication

Here I am, a week into July and a week into Camp NaNoWriMo (a project that barely has 2,000 words at this point because… reasons).  This is my third time doing the July round of Camp NaNoWrimo.  The very first time I participated is the reason for this post today. My novel Modern Persuasion isRead more

How I Write

It is almost July, which means it’s round 2 of Camp NaNoWriMo.  I have been writing in NaNoWriMo events for 12 years.  For 12 years, as a writer, I have written in nearly every NaNoWriMo event.   For about 66% of that time I have thought about what it means to be a writer, especially asRead more

No, I Didn’t Win Camp NaNoWriMo and That’s OK

For the first time in a very long time, I did not win Camp NaNoWriMo.  It’s actually not a big deal and here is why. First, some background is necessary.  While November is the main NaNoWriMo period, in April and July there are two smaller periods with self-defined goals.  Instead of 50,000 you can chooseRead more

The End of April and NaBloPoMo

This is the end… Not really- it’s just the end of April and my National Blog Posting month.  It was an interesting month.  A lot of things happened, most of them mentioned here. I wrote at least 1 post a day, every day. My statistics weren’t all that much higher than any of the recentRead more

Writing Communities

Reading and writing are not thought of as group activities.  Even those of us who join book clubs, do the reading on our own.  For me reading is something done alone.  The first time I read a book with someone (an audiobook with a boy friend), it was weird.  I felt obligated to avoid skippingRead more

Camp NaNoWriMo and Me

As I mentioned earlier (an accidentally posted a few days ago), I am doing Camp NaNoWriMo again this month. I have done if before.  November isn’t the only time I write.  In fact, I have done so much writing over the past 12 years that I have a lot I can edit and publish overRead more

NaBloPoMo – Coming… NOW!!

I decided to try an experiment in April: NaBloPoMo.  This typically happens in November with National Novel Writing Month, but the goal is similar: write for a month.  I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo in April and will be working on some of my own writing projects, but I will also be posting daily toRead more
