National Novel Writing Month
Hello friends. It's that time of year again. National Novel Writing Month begins next week. Are you ready? I hope so. NaNoWriMo began in 1999. The challenge is to write 50,000 words within the 30 days of November. A non-profit, NaNoWriMo encourages writing and education. It is also a social network. You can join the community and also participate in the activity. Check it out at www.nanowrimo.org.
My writing hiatus will officially end November 1st. I confess, I have been making notes. Tidbits of story line. I even completed an entire chapter. I set aside my suspense manuscript to work on revising my thriller. I already have a new title, Family, Monsters and Zaubers.
Before November, I have three books to finish reading. One by author V.M. Burns, In The Dog House. A lot to do in one week with a full time job. Wish me luck.
If you missed out on the field trip to the Sacramento historic cemetery, don't despair. Capitol Crimes, the Sacramento chapter of Sisters in Crime, will host author Simon Wood on Saturday, November 16th at the Rancho Cordova library. Find us at www. capitolcrimes.wildapricot.org. You can find Sisters in Crime at www.sistersincrime.org. Remember, we are a community. Reach out. We all need support.
