Goodbye, NaNo – Hello, Publishing!

NaNoWriMo is over, but I am SO excited for this next season of my life! I won NaNo (i.e. wrote 50k words in November) and completed that draft of my project. Which . . . I can’t go into too much detail about yet, but soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰ With my NaNo project temporarily tucked away, I’veContinue reading “Goodbye, NaNo – Hello, Publishing!”

NaNoWriMo Comes to a Close

Well, folks, I’ve passed the 40k mark! I’m pretty sure I’ll be finishing up in the next few days.

It’s that time of year again. Harvesting corn, canning tomatoes, making applesauce (from the early apples) . . . In between training a new puppy, learning a new language, managing a blog . . . oh, and writing. I mean, I am a writer.
