It’s November. NOVEMBER?? The month where half the world goes crazy. No, I’m not talking politics. I’m talking about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and NoShave November. I’m talking about way too many twenty-somethings out on the roads during fall college breaks.
Three months of the year have flown by. Holy cow. That’s crazy. What have you been doing?
Over here at the blog, we’ve been trying to keep up with the world., while avoiding the world. You know how that can be.
Happy New Year.
With so much on my writing plate, I’m hopeful to continue these interviews, bringing you new books, new authors and great links to all sorts of literary fun!
We welcome always your feedback and kind comments.
Holy cow. It’s DECEMBER? Where the hell did this year go? Hang on.
Okay, I’m back. I just ordered all the Christmas and Hanukkah presents, printed up a boatload of party recipes, planned the outside light configuration and started the annual newsletter report.
Hello there! It’s another Wednesday and since this is NANOWRIMO month, I am writing this well ahead of time and setting up the little scheduler to work while I sleep, or sleepwrite, because there is no pausing to get to 50k words in a month that is struck short by Thanksgiving travels and conventions and general hi-jinx.
There are some writers that you never really know. They hide behind their characters, they change their names, build fake towns or fantasy worlds. You may never truly know them. And sometimes, that lets you fall into their stories harder than you might have if you were busy staring at the face on the book jacket wondering if she really is the teacher at your kid’s school or the girl on the elevator at Park Street Condos.
And she’s definitely an author you should be reading. Heck, you’ve got like sixteen books to chose from. Slow down, Maggie! Give the rest of us a chance, would you?
You can call her Maggie or you can call her Rigel,
It’s Wednesday and all is well in the ‘hood. Just another day of type, type, type, while listening to imaginary people in my head. 🙂 If any of you out there are part of NANOWRIMO this month, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
So, it’s that time of the year again. Crime writers of all sorts will convene in a hotel and plot the end of someone’s life. Or just drink and tell stories between selling books, eating fried chicken and speaking on panels.
