A blog about writing and all things story…

It’s Fall, must be time for NaNo!

fall 2015Autumn is a time of harvest. For writers it’s a fabulous time to reap your solstice energies and prepare to focus them on writing–the gathering of words, images and stories. No matter what your project (fiction, non-fiction, memoir, or short stories) a toasty fire, comfy coffee shop or friendly bookstore are all faithful sanctuaries to a writer contemplating their muse.

This year, for the first time in years, I will be participating in NaNo-WriMo – National Novel Writing Month for those of you who have just footer-nanowrimoarrived – to launch me into my next novel, Garden of Lies.

If you are unaware (live under a rock) of NANO, then check out their site, find a local group, participate in a write-in, or simply (easily said) set your goals; commit to writing 50,000 words in the 30 days of November. Sounds easy doesn’t’ it.

Planner or Pantser? No Plot, not problem! Visit the NANO site for a ton of resources to get you inspired and on the road to novel success.  AND, they will actually have successful authors who will serve as your NANO Coaches on Twitter; check out their twitter help page here and follow them for writing tips at @NaNoWriMo

Now, I’m off to the coffee shop to do a little planning (I’m a combo, planner/pantser – does that make me a planster?) Anyway, then off to have nice warm calzone at Sully’s, (talk about food with my name on it) YUM!calzone

Then I’m off to the bookstore and then home to rake up leaves, make a pot of stew, and review my notes for my novel in front of the fire.

I love autumn.
