Up until 4am last night/morning writing…..
Woke up at 12pm to start again.
Feeling like I’m about 4 weeks behind schedule and 9 hours too late. But I made it through the ugly NYC snow…. found a seat.. sipping a hot coco, and prepping for NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH http://www.nanowrimo.org/
-Beginning Nov 1st- November 30th
My hope is that this blog will be another tool to hold me accountable to something other than the sad looks I get from my dogs when I cop out of writing that day; but to also obtain some encouragement from seasoned professionals and newbies like me.
But above all, I want to share my experience as a new writer and soon to be author. Everywhere there are artists asking each other for advice and support in their field of work. Each guarding their “process” in creating and developing their craft but secretly wondering how others do it.
WHAT THE HELL….. being new I’m happy to share a little while hoping to gain some knowledge as I make my way to the last word on the last page.
Music is one of the most important things I love and need when I’m creating. So I listen to a lot of it as I write. I will share one or two songs as I am actively listening to them in those moments.
I do a lot of research, and in doing so I find some really interesting things. So you see how I obtain the info I get while learning about some of my characters- I will post some of this information to the blog
After long week of writing…IF, I find a passage from my novel that makes sense & is understandable I will share.
Because sometimes words are not enough
Essentially, this is where I use poetry as a cathartic process of releasing the things that weigh heavy on my chest and grip my heart
Because we (writers/ artists) all could use a little help… I will post resources, links, NaNoWriMo info including grants and fellowships.
