Things that Aren’t Genre

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. I’ve been talking this year all about genre and about the major and minor genre categories that we see and can use as writers. We're coming to the end of the year and you may have noticed that ther's a lot that we haven't had the time to tslk about yet, so I want to address that now. Let’s get started.

Beat Procrastination

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. I’ve been talking this month about NaNoWriMo, or the National Novel Writing Month. Even in years where I have no specific project or aren’t wholly committed to the challenge, I often still love talking about my experiences with the entire NaNoWriMo month. This week, I want to talk about something that I’ve been experiencing this week as the writing has gotten difficult and I finished my draft of a children’s novel early and before hitting 50,000 words. Specifically, I want to talk about that little insidious habit we all get into called procrastination and how I’m getting myself out of it. Let’s get started.

This week, I want to talk specifically about things you can participate in during NaNoWriMo that will help you get the words in. Let’s get started.
