Want to write a book? Want to do it fast? Want encouragement from famous people? Want to connect with other writers in your local area?
Then you need to join NaNoWriMo! I went to the National Novel Writing Month website and got myself signed up to write (finish) a novel in November. If you join NaNoWriMo, be sure to make me one of your writing buddies.
This year, my NaNo project is once again The Stepsisters. It feels as if I’ve been writing this book f – o – r – e – v – e – r .
I’m two-thirds finished with my third revision, and I think this is the one. My goal for November is to finish The Stepsisters. For those of you who haven’t already heard about this novel, The Stepsisters is a steampunk Cinderella, told in alternating first person by the two stepsisters. And not to brag or anything, but it is la-la fabulous. Or will be. When I finish it. In November.
OK, so go do the NaNo thing. You know you want to. Here’s the link again: National Novel Writing Month website.

This year will be my first NaNo so I’m super excited to get started. Your book sounds awesome by the way
Thanks, Hoppinglark. May your first NaNo be fruitful and fun! What is the story you’re planning to write?
It is historical fiction about the Iron Age Celts and Druids who lived on the isle of Anglesey, Wales when it was invaded by the Romans.
Sounds like a fascinating story. Good luck to you!
I’m sure doing Nano will give you that extra push to complete your story. My November is so booked up [sorry for the pun] I’ll just plod on as usual. One very special event I’m going to is a 100th birthday lunch for a glamorous lady, so sprightly and independent.
Ha! Booked up! Well said. Happy 100th to your friend!
