After weeks of continuing summer weather, fall was most definitely in the air today. The wind was gusty, causing leaves to fall en masse and blowing them all over and it's at least a little cooler. It's a good thing too. I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm ready for winter!
And it's NaNoWriMo time! If you've ever thought about trying to write but not been sure how to start, or you've got a great idea but need motivation to put pen to paper and follow through, National Novel Writing Month is a great opportunity to begin. There are local "write-ins" all across the nation where all kinds of writers meet together to write, encourage each other, and share what they're up to. It's a great place to get advice too. There are tons of resources at the website: NaNoWriMo.org
This will be my first year participating (or at least trying to . . . November is a very busy month for me) but I have friends who have been involved for years who love it. No, I'm not working on The Glister Journals through it, I'm working on a completely different project, and yes, I am also working on TGJ Book Two (and Three and Four)!
I'd love to know if you're participating. Drop me a line and let me know!
As an extra added bonus (just so you're getting your money's worth) one of my all-time favorite bands, MUTEMATH, released a new album in October: Odd Soul
Here's the "Blood Pressure" video from Odd Soul. Enjoy!
