National Novel Writing Month is exciting in the beginning. You feel like you’re standing at the starting line to a long distance race. You have a new and interesting story you’re ready to dive into, the support of your friends in the NaNo community and the energy of a good challenge running through your veins. NaNo at week three is… tired.
I can’t believe release day is here! I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who supported me by pre-ordering, blogging, reviewing and sharing! I couldn’t do it without your support and I am forever grateful!
We spoke about the wage gap, fists in the air feminist issues last week, so let’s think a little smaller now and discuss an issue that, though subtle, though nuanced, is just as feminist and just as important. Food shaming in romance novels.
It wasn’t until I got older that I realized that promise, that paradise of women working as directors and doctors and lawyers, comes with strings attached
First of all, congrats! Your interest in doing National Novel Writing Month shows an excitement for writing and storytelling and a willingness to rise to the challenge of writing a whole book in a month! I haven't attempted NaNo in three years, but I'll be doing it with you this year! My NaNo project is the third book in a current series, and I look forward to trying the challenge again, especially after all that I've learned as a writer and NaNo-er!
Being able to get away from the truly terrible things in our lives – be them personal or universal, a loss in the family or the overwhelming tragedy of the world that seems so completely out of our control, is not a bad thing. It is a survival technique, a self-care step we must all take in order to make it through the toughest days.
Today, I got to know a character from Sharon Buchbinder's new release,Legacy of Evil, Hotel LaBelle Series, Book 2! I hope you enjoy meeting Emma as much as I did!
