Fall colors for NaNo

NaNo — you may have heard it, but what does it mean? Well, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, but it’s actually international, so perhaps it should be called InNo. Well, NaNo is how it started and will remain.

NaNo is a huge excuse to write a crazy number of words in a month, fifty thousand to be exact. It’s an excuse to ignore the housekeeping, survive on leftovers and take-out, drink too much coffee, get out of bed when it’s still dark, and write, write, write.

There are so many writers participating, like Sheri Kennedy, which makes it fun. I was up at 6 today to join friends on Twitter for two 50-minute sprints. That’s early for me, and it’s good for me!

I am working on the sequel to the novella I submitted. Sadly, it wasn’t a fit for the anthology, but that’s okay. It’s an international romantic spy thriller, and getting that novella done and turned in inspired me to do a series. I plan to write the sequel then go back and turn the first one into a novel. Onward!

To inspire us for the week ahead, here are some fresh new Autumn photos from Nevada:

    Gorgeous photos! And I’m so glad I took the time to click and read the whole article, since I can now thank you for the mention! 🙂 It is fun knowing you’re out there creating words with me too. I have had a bit of a slow start since I’m writing carefully instead of with abandon, but I’ve gone to lots of events, and I’m moving ahead and encouraging others to come alongside. Happy writing!
    Also, I’m excited you’re doing a spy romance series. I really loved The Last Straw, and can imagine the good things to come!
