Camp NaNoWriMo

camp_nano_logo-1I just joined Camp NaNoWriMo for the month of July, which starts in just 2 days! Camp NaNoWriMo is dedicated to helping writers complete a writing project in a month.

This is the first time I will have participated in something like this, but I’m super excited. I set my goal for 50,000 words. That’s 1,613 words a day! I’ve already been assigned to a “cabin” with 19 other writers, who all share similar writing goals. So, hopefully we’ll be there to support and root for each other as we all labor away at pen or pc.

If I’m successful, I will finally complete the first novel that I will seriously pursue for publishing. This is a story I’ve written and dreamed about since I was 9, and the tentative title is The Luxian Child, a fantasy novel classified as Sword and Sorcery.

Good luck to us all!


Rising in the Writing World With Love Notes & Help Notes

To most people, criticism is the disapproval of someone based on perceived faults or mistakes. For writing and literary works, criticism should be the analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a work. However, the connotation of a word has more weight than the base meaning and in our society, criticism is seen as bad.

So, I devised a system, influenced from participation in numerous workshops and the counsel of my writing mentors, which I call Love Notes & Help Notes. This system is designed to inform, to guide, and to instill confidence in writers. Here, you will find encouraging and instructional letters on writing: Love Notes & Help Notes.
