Happy hump day. If you haven’t figured it out, the month of November will be filled with nano gripes and highs. This is as good as any opportunity to really see inside an author’s head and watch their process. Obviously so much more goes on at the back end when the story is done but…

   
Its week 2 of nanowrimo and I’m pretty sure its my worst nano year ever. LOLOL. I can’t dig into the story like I need to but I’ll keep pushing through. So far I’m at 5k. 🙁 Ugh. Here’s a tiny peek at all the rough glory of my work in progress. Before she could…

This year it seems like nano is flying by rather quickly. We’re already 9 day into the national writing marathon and have 2 weekends under our belt. I definitely made up for the sluggish week with a great word count on Friday and Saturday. Of course, Sunday wasn’t as good to me and I closed…
