2015 NanoWrimo month Results Blog (Aspiring Author Spotlight special)

Aspiring Author Spotlight, NewsLeave a Comment

Hello friends!

Tomorrow is the final day in November, my birthday month, and with it is a writers dream that has spread like wildfire across the world the last few years. ^_^ I am, of coarse, referring to, National Novel Writing Month, ran through the organization, Nanowrimo (my user name is starymoon07 if you wanted to be my buddy). =) I have been interested in attempting to finish 50,000 words in 30 days like the qualifications require for two years, but I have been too busy. Alas, in the long run, I was too busy this year as well, but I did get to have some great experiences with my friends because of it, the task lighting a small fire under me to work on “Spirit Vision 4.” Here are our numbers and genres from my circle of authors and aspiring authors who participated:

*All of these authors are ones I have worked with before, have been interviewed for “Aspiring Author Spotlight,” or, in Mr. Rowe’s case, will be featured on my website soon for AAS. ^_^ Please click their names to view their sites or their AAS spot. 🙂

What a wonderful turn-out friends! Thank you for getting me to work on my next manuscript with such fun support of food, laughs, incentives, get-togethers, allowing me to speak to other aspiring authors, and more. Kate, the other Morgan, and I are going to do this monthly (our November get together fun photo is above) and December, we are having a sushi and Oriental cuisine writing party. Once a month now, at my public library, me and another newly published local author will be giving hints and tips to how to make query letters, looking up publishers, and other publication starters. I also have been asked to come in to my former workplace and local middle school to help edit their Writing Club’s collective story they are starting in December. I look forward to all this support and being a leader as well! <3
