Well, this is exciting! NaNoWriMo starts next week and I can’t wait. I am so enthusiastic this year that I have decided to host a Nano write-in. I’m going to be putting together some kind of word prompts and challenges document to take with me to help jumpstart our creative juices. It’s closer to the middle of the month when the writing drag sets in, so hopefully it will be helpful for those who attend.
I’ll be writing the next four books with Christian Tompta as the main character-and yes, I have planned them out already. I cannot tell you how delighted I am to be moving in this direction, even though I haven’t put out the first series yet. My timeline has been extended on publishing the first series because I decided I am illustrating the books! If you are interested in hearing news about any of my upcoming books, please join my email list. Those on the list will be the first to know when “The Tales of Christian Tompta” books become available.
So what is NaNoWriMo you ask? It’s short for National Novel Writing Month, which is an organization dedicated to doing nonprofit work with kids, libraries, community centers and schools to promote literacy. Their motto is “The World Needs Your Novel.” NaNoWriMo helps writers to focus and create those manuscripts they’ve always dreamed of as well. If you’re interested in donating along with me, here’s a link:
Maybe pick yourself up a t-shirt too? I did… or two…
