A Place to Belong

10 minute novelists badge

There is a group called 10 Minute Novelists that is a young whippersnapper by internet standards (I can say I was there from the beginning), but is mighty and growing.

This group of writers of many genres and styles exists because one woman decided to create a safe haven for those of us looking for support and community and a place where we could be ourselves AND feel understood.

I highly recommend you check out the website, Facebook page and Twitter to see all the terrific goings-on.  See in cyberspace, Authors!

Novelling in 30 days or fewer

This little ditty really makes you think. I CAN do this. It’s things like this that keep pushing me forward on this year’s NaNoWriMo. I’m trying to catch up.

Note to self: DON’T get behind next year and DO outline before November 1st (or 14th). I will not only Survive, but Thrive, baby!

What gives you the kick you need at just the right moment?

Well…I’m off to see the Wizard!

I stayed up past midnight last night (who knew it would be such a struggle!)  to make sure I could get in some good time (and word counts) right from the get go on NaNoWriMo.   It was very exciting watching folks count down to their midnight from all over the world.  I was able to write in a couple of pockets of time today and am glad I have a bit of word padding (above the 1,667 word count per day they recommend)!  See my total to the right of this post.

Thanks for the help with the cafe naming, too. Keep those votes coming! And check back in throughout the month to see how things are coming in NaNo Land!
