Mark Wilcox over at 'The Blood Turbine', offers a neat post about our book income! It's a great way to break profits down to the 'nitty-gritty' and something to set our sights on!
The fabulous duo...Em & Lena have set up their NaNoWriMo Support Group, NaNo Fun Not Fear. If you're taking the NaNo challenge, join up for encouragement and accountability. You may even make some new friends!
Maria Zannini, author of The Devil To Pay, has a new release coming out tomorrow!
And Speaking Of Reading...
* I'm typing away on Her Dark Baron. I'd like to have it in my betas' hands by 01 November, but will be satisfied if it's done by 07 November. I've - ahem - changed a few things along the way, which is slowing me down a bit. I promised myself I would type and type only. I guess I lied.
Do any of you have this dastardly problem? I cannot leave things alone!
* I've begun chapter 7 in Outlining Your Book, by K.M. Weiland. Wow! I cannot say enough about this easy to read craft book. I've streamlined my NaNo prep using Weiland's methods.
* Fiction reading - nil. I simply haven't had the time.
* I'm working through my character profiles in the NaNo project and should be joined up within a few days. I've accomplished enough that I feel comfortable. I didn't want any big decisions hanging over my head within the storyline because I'll need to concentrate solely on the writing. A daily word count of 1600 words is huge for me. I'm a natural slow-poke. Ha!
*Meeting my outreach goal of 5 blogs per day (Mon-Fri) has continued to be a highlight in my work. I have decided to suspend that goal during NaNoWriMo, visiting when I have time. It's only a short break - and I'm taking it to give my best to this challenge.
Hope you are all ready for another great week! ~ Nadja
