It’s Monday, and it’s the last Monday of the month of November, which means we’ve arrived at the final Monday Topic. Since it is the end of NaNoWriMo, I thought it would be fitting to wrap up the month with a post about NaNo. First, I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. Second, I hope everyone hadContinue reading “Final Monday Topic: Wrapping Up NaNoWriMo”
It’s Saturday, November 28th, which means we’re winding down to the end of NaNoWriMo! This is the time when some writers begin to scramble to make it to the finish line.

Little details in your writing can make a major difference.

This is especially true if you’re a self published author. Not only are there websites dedicated to helping you get yourContinue reading “Writer’s Resource: Self Publisher’s Showcase”
Some writers are very rigid. They need to structure their stories into a very organized manner. They create chapter outlines, create timelines and detailed descriptions of their characters. My outlines are pretty short, I only create timelines when absolutely necessary and my character descriptions are limited to ‘Lena Scott, age 29, teacher, drives a blackContinue reading “Order and Disorder”

How often do you visit your local public library? If you are a writer or an avid reader, you should definitely patronize your local library as often as possible. Public libraries are a fantastic resource for writers and authors to reach new audiences. They also help readers discover new books. When you think of booksContinue reading “Small Press and Self Published at the Library”
Welcome to the middle of November! Its also the middle of NaNoWriMo. This is the halfway point! So, now what? First of all, don’t stress yourself. There isn’t a written rule that says you need to have accomplished a particular set of goals in your NaNo project by now.
