I’m Still Alive, But I’m Barely Breathing – NaNo Past the Halfway

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.

Eat Your Heart Out

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.  

SO YOU WANT TO DO NANO?

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!
