Remember those New Year’s resolutions I posted yesterday? Remember how one of them was to write at least once a week? THAT IS NOT A NEW GOAL. But it’s one that I struggle to follow through with every year despite the fact that my dreams of being an author kind of hinge upon it. I’ve […]

NANOWRIMO 2011 WINNER!

Categories: Blog Posts, The Write Stuff

About 2.5 hours ago, I won NaNoWriMo for the first time. I keep wandering back over to the site, logging back in and staring at the purple bar in case I imagined it. It’s something that sounds so ridiculous to some people. I’ve explained that I was just writing it to write it, that I have […]

Winning!

Sometimes little things just make your day. Like getting a package consisting of Jackson Pearce’s Sweetly and a Sweetly lollipop and realizing that it means that I won Novel Novice’s Sweetly writing contest! My take was on Swan Lake and the other two winners modernized The Emperor’s New Clothes and Sleeping Beauty. Be sure to […]
