I’ve written four novels; one is published (Saving Grace), and three are scheduled for publication over the next few years. Of these four, guess how many I drafted originally during the annual National Novel Writing Monthof November (NanoWriMo)?

** THREE **

That’s right — I gave birth to three Sagittarians, then nurtured them in the ensuing months as lovingly as I would a human baby. That got them to the point of “crappy first draft” status. From there, many more months and much hard work later, I had something I could turn over to my editor.

NanoWriMo works for me. It works for some other folks, too. It does not work AT ALL for a great number of people.

First, let me explain NanoWriMo.

p.s. Do you do Goodreads? If so, I’d appreciate you adding Saving Grace (or any of my other books) to your reading list (and, if you’ve read it, add a rating and/or review). It means the world to an author. Thanks!

p.s. Be first to hear about new book releases, 1-2 times a year (don't worry, I won't use your email for anything else)! <-- click here
