NaNoWriMo 2011


It’s that time of year again, and I don’t mean Halloween.

It’s time for writers to put pen to paper or fingertips to keyboard!

It’s NaNoWriMo time!

This will be my third year as a NaNoWriMo participant.  The first year, if you remember, I wrote The Stolen Goldin Violin.  The second year, I upped my word count on Wilde Wagers.  This year, I plan to spend the month of November completely revising Syncopation and getting it ready to submit to Cornerstone Press in January.

So, I’m a NaNoWriMo cheater. The idea of NaNoWriMo is to turn off one’s internal editor and write an entire novel, from start to finish, during the month of November.  I did that the first year, but these past two years that system hasn’t really fit into where I’m at as a writer, so I’ve adapted the program to suit my own needs.  I love the supportive emails I get from NaNoWriMo, and being part of a writing community is amazingly wonderful.

I’ll keep you updated on my progress, and I encourage anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel to sign up.  It’s great fun!  Just go to and sign up today.  You are running out of time for 2011!!
