We have 5 days left in our mad dash to 50k words. So, I decided today might be a good day for a last push encouragement post. In football, with 2 minutes left on the clock and the team is on the final down, the coach or quarterback will probably call for a Hail Mary. […]Read more "NEARING THE NANO FINISH LINE"
Three days ago, we hit the half-way mark for NaNo. I thought I’d entertain you with an half-time show. Enjoy Leave me a comment and let me know your progress. As of this posting, I am currently at 14,345 words. See you next week. Until then, “Don’t worry about what you’re writing or whether it’s […]Read more "NaNoWriMo HALF-TIME"

They’ve either quit, started another project, pushed through and are continuing their original project, or have completed their manuscripts. I land in the third category. I fought hard last week with the urge to give […]Read more "NANOWRIMO WEEK 3 – WHERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD"

Some of my fellow Wrimo’s have already completed one novel and are working on the second. Of course, these are Wrimo’s who have participated in NaNoWriMo […]Read more "NANOWRIMO WEEK 2 – A CHANGE HAS COME"
