I recently discovered I’m not a storyteller; I’m a story “re-teller.” I draw inspiration from signs of life lived: old cemeteries, black-and-white photos, newspaper clippings. In this post, I discuss the unique challenges I’ve faced in my personal and writing lives following the death of one of the relatives who inspired my novel-in-progress.
Although I didn’t read as many books as I wanted to this year, the ones I did read were total gamechangers. A good book should challenge your beliefs and inspire you to do better, and these books certainly achieved that.
I love Scrivener, which is why I waited months to find an alternative after first noticing the program might actually be restricting my progress.
I met my minimum word count goal, but there’s still so much work to do.
I review my goals, progress, and NaNoWriMo rewards system and share insights on how to boost productivity during NaNoWriMo.
