November is not my favorite month, but it's up there. Why? It's cooler, there are still awesome leaves and pumpkin spice.
It's also my birthday month (YOU PICK THE BIRTHDAY GIFT! SEE BELOW), the holidays are coming, and.... IT'S NANOWRIMO TIME!
If you haven't heard of it, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a nonprofit that hosts a month-long event designed to help motivate authors all over to write 50,000 words (my books are usually ~60,00-80,000, so almost a whole book) in the 30 days of November.
The idea is to get motivation from each other, prizes, and a progress bar that tracks how many words you're writing each day.
Do you have a goal for November? I wish you all the luck!
Please send all the word vibes... I'm trying to finish writing Shifters Cliff (the Fox and the Howl book 3), Grave Notice (the Harbingers of Death book 3) with LeAnn Mason, and mayyyyybe get some words in on my next series (Branwyn Blood -- read the prequel in the Bloodsport Anthology, which is only $0.99 and gives all proceeds to charity).
