This past month, I've been gearing up to start writing Reborn of Ashes Book 3 of the Phoenix Province Trilogy. I've been trying to write this story, but life and other circumstances have kept me from getting started.
And then, here comes my favorite writerly event of the year... TheNaNoWriMo challenge. Yes, 50,000 words in one month. Not just any month, either. It's Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season month!
NaNoWriMo, an acronym short for “National Novel Writing Month,” is an online platform, as well as a challenge taking place in November, for aspiring writers to take on and belt out a 50,000-word novel within a whole month! According to its site, NaNoWriMo is “a website, a community, a wildly ambitious writing event – and so much more!”
We all love a great deal. And most of us aren't too willing to spend money on something we aren't sure of.
I get it. It's the same for trying out new authors. That's why so many of us put first books in a series for free. We want to give you a chance to get to know us, our writing style, and see if we will be a good fit.
So, today I'm going to offer you a list of virtual bookstores that can be delivered right to your mailbox.
I have no affiliations with any of these sites. I have promoted books on a few of them. But they do offer a good lists of books daily, some weekly. All do require that you sign up with your email address.
Let's face it, even though many of us will never give up or print book, the fact of the matter is that e-books are also a great way to read books, and lots of them.
This week, I'm going to share some great hacks to get the most out of your e-reader. Though your mileage might vary according to the type of reader you own, most of the tips work across the board.
As a side note, this article does contain a few affiliate links meaning if you purchase something, I'll get a little bit of pocket change in return. =)
Last week, we talked about how things went in the Story World in 2019. Today, we'll be looking ahead!
This week, I'd like to share some of my vision for 2020.
First off, I'm determined to have a plan. I've always been a "come what may" kind of girl, but not anymore. I'm tired to running to keep up. This year is my big step in getting ahead and sticking to a plan.
Wish me luck. 🙄
