November is quickly approaching, and to many authors this month is one of frantic typing, scribbling, or even dictating. That’s because November is NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is a month-long challenge where authors push themselves to write 50,000 words in their next novel over the course of one month.
I don’t participate in NaNoWriMo. I have my own schedule and writing style that work well for me, and I prefer to keep it that way rather than artificially push myself during one arbitrary month. That said, I don’t think NaNoWriMo is a bad thing. In fact, I think it’s a great thing for many authors. Here’s why:
Will you take part in NaNoWriMo this year? Have you read anything from an author who completed their book during NaNoWriMo in a previous year? Tell me about it in the comments.4 comments
If you love mysteries as much as I do and you just can’t wait until the first Murder Script novel is released, be sure to visit my author website and blog at AriaKlein.com.
There I talk about mystery writing, mystery novels, and my own writing process (including progress on this novel and game series). That blog is designed to let you get to know me a bit better, but also to increase reader interaction with the books themselves.
What frustrates you about some mysteries? What do you most want out of a new series of cozies? Which mystery authors do the best job of getting your attention? Share your thoughts on these and other mystery-related topics at AriaKlein.com. Or just stop by to say “hi!”no comments
