Nearing the Finish Line of Preptober 2019

For those of you participating in this year’s Nanowrimo, we have only a week remaining of Preptober. How are you faring?

Planning, planning, and MORE planning!

This is the time for us to flesh out our plotlines, subplots, character arcs, and every other detail that goes into writing a full-fledged novel.

For those of you that aren’t aware of the term “Nanowrimo”, it’s where you spend the entire month of November churning out a rough draft for a novel. Aspiring novelists commit to writing 1667 words a day in order to have themselves a 50,000+ word manuscript come November 30.

If you are interested in joining me on Nanowrimo 2019, let me know. I would love to support you on your writing journey! Feel free to join me on my Facebook author page to keep up with my progress AND share yours!
