This is the first week of NaNoWri – so in honor this is all artwork/ pictures having to do with all the writers around the world writing 50,000 words this month. Myself included (first time doing this NaNo project).
30 days to write a 50,000 word novel.
Some advise I’ve found online:
- Warn your family
- Don’t edit, just write
- If you don’t know a word to use put XXXX instead and keep going. Then you can do a word search for XXXX and fill in those when you do edits.
How about you? Are you doing NaNoWri? Do you have any experience to share with us newbies?
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
