A blog about writing and all things story…
Does the idea of writing 50,000 words in 30 days leave you breathless? Well, November is “National Novel Writing Month” (NaNoWriMo), so catch your breath, roll up your sleeves and get ready. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000- word) novel by midnight, November 30. For more info, see http://www.nanowrimo.org

And/or check out the King County Library system for more NaNo info and some great local writing events, classes and workshops that can be attended for free.
I just returned home from a week in Victoria BC, where I was able to spend time in one of my favorite writing hideaways; The Empress
The grounds were adorned with fall colors, the blue-grey harbor was just below my window and the sunshine was plentiful for our entire trip. I drank lots of proper English tea while making a list, as Jack Remick advised me to do, of all the important ‘moments’ for my protagonist, in my novel. It’s been a good exercise for me and helped me focus in on some issues I am having with my story. That Jack – he really knows what he’s talking about.
So, find a cozy place, if not the Empress, then a local coffee shop and settle in for some serious November writing. Good luck!
