In January 2016, I will be sending out the first Monthly Newsletter!
Different from this blog, the Monthly Newsletter will feature items specifically for you!
To give you an idea of what to expect, in the January newsletter you will receive a $2 Off Coupon a paperback copy of The Keeper and an Exclusive First-Look at The Varken.
NaNoWriMo is a crazy month where hundreds of thousands of people works towards the goal of writing 50,000 words for their novels. Even though I try to make time to write every day, I love the community of writers that rise up in November to encourage one another forward towards their goal. The forums and the Facebook group are incredibly helpful and, without them, NaNoWriMo would feel much more lonely and long. In fact, it is a big reason why I love this month.
But if I’ve learned anything this month, it’s that one method doesn’t work for everyone. I have very specific things I do to keep myself motivated to keep writing, but those methods might not work for everyone. What’s important, is finding out what works for you and sticking with it! It’s been a year of trial and error, but now I have my settled routine, and I got into the groove just in time for November.
I have been so floored and encouraged by book sales this week! I ordered four copies from Createspace to distribute myself. I’ve often had people ask if I have a copy on hand they can purchase, and I hate having to say “no but you can order it online!” So I finally got a few copies myself, not too many just in case, but it’s seems I’ll need to be ordering more! It’s been two days and there is only one unclaimed copy left! Wowza!
Thank you for all of the support everyone!
As for an update on NaNoWriMo, I’m going strong, totaling at 17.5k currently, with a couple more hours of writing to go today. I’m also on the tail-end of Act I and about to launch into a whole new arena for Tales of Ailenor *series title?* – Thedrigan! Finally venturing out of Eviryia and across the Deep Dell! I’m so excited to explore this new location, even though I know my characters are quite distraught at needing to be there. Oh, the secrets!
