writer-at-work-150x150Hey Folks,

National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo, starts today!

If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in the 30 days of November. I signed up with Entangled Publishing’s Entangled Smackdown with Savvy Authors this year to help me stay motivated too. It basically bonds me to my team with a promise to finish the challenge, write and check in every day, cheer on my teammates and write the darn book. <!–more–>

Even though, I love writing, for whatever reason, I am in need of deadlines and reasons to write. The Smackdown is very motivating because I don’t want to let the team down. I’m also a huge competitor so that’s super motivating.

Today I got to hang out with about 40 writers from here in DC, including our lovely host,multi-published author Kathy Seidel, and I shared a couch with RITA Award winner Diane Gaston. Osmosis works! And isn’t the axiom that if you want to be successful, then you need to hang around successful people?

All that being said, this is it for the blog in November. And I’m just gonna take off in December to do edits. With that, I’ll be back in January. I wish you all wonderful holidays, joyful ringtones and Happy Writing!

Jenny

Would love to hear from you!
