Just me, my words, and some tea. Editing my pirate novel so I can send it to a Harlequin editor, who requested the full manuscript!

Minerva‘s keeping me company while I prep for #Nanowrimo by reading the tagged book. I‘m enjoying it a lot, other than the author using examples from books I intend to read. Some have a quick “spoilers ahead!” notice but some don‘t & they often contain what I‘d consider minor spoilers. It‘s annoying, but I can get past it because there are lots of useful exercises that I‘m sure will help me improve my novels. I can‘t wait to get started!

JazzFeathers I'm not sure about my NaNo this year. I'm going to attempt it, of course. But l've been working such long hours all through the month (and l'm not done yet) and l'm already exhausted 😪. Let's see. Good luck to you. I'll follow your progress. And just in case, l'm Celebcuen on the site 😊 2mo
TK-421 @JazzFeathers Sorry to hear you‘re exhausted 😞 Thanks for the well-wishes & best of luck to you too! I‘m Vaaren on the Nano site & I sent you a buddy invite 😊 2mo

IvoryLunatic I just have absolutely no idea what to write about this year so I‘m skipping again. I haven‘t done it in a couple of years now. 2mo
TaraTLK I'm doing it. 2mo

I‘m thinking about doing #NaNoWriMo for fun this year, 😳 so I picked up a few novel plotting books. This book was extremely informative, well written, and concise. The examples were very helpful, and the tips were pragmatic. I‘ll definitely be referring to this one a lot, even if it‘s just to plot my favorite books.

twohectobooks Do it! I did NaNoWriMo for many years before burning out and taking a long break (I‘m still not quite ready to try again). The first time is really fun though and a treasured bunch of memories for me. 2mo
thebluestocking @twohectobooks Thanks for the encouragement. I‘ve half done it before with friends, but have never “won.” I think I‘m ready to push through this year. 💙 2mo

Confession: it‘s not until I posted that last picture of the library book I‘ve been working on all week, that I noticed how familiar its UK cover looked in other Littens‘ photos. Because, as it turns out, I already owned a copy of this book. 🤦‍♀️

Now I‘m just hoping I still have the drive to finish it without a library due date breathing down my neck...

Centique 😂😂 I know the feeling. I have made a list on my phone of all the unread books I own because I found myself blithely buying more editions of the same thing at second hand book shops! 3mo
ravenlee I always visit the same used book shop when I visit my in-laws. One year I bought The Pickwick Papers, because I thought it was time to read it. Got hone from the trip a few days later and put the book on the shelf...next to the identical copy I had bought a year or two prior...from the same store...same edition and everything. 🤦🏻‍♀️ At least my thinking is consistent. 3mo
Reggie I bought the Milkman on kindle because there was a sale. And then 2 weeks later I cleaned out my car only to realize I had bought it at B&Ns like a month earlier. Lol, it happens. 3mo
emtobiasz @Centique @ravenlee @Reggie you all are making me feel better! At least my duplicate was a library book! 3mo

I‘ve been working my way through Reflections a few essays at a time this week, revelling in DWJ‘s writing about her writing. Imagine my delight, then, when I found The Ogre Downstairs in a Little Free Library on our walk this morning! #bookserendipity #lfl #tbr #thanksuniverse

I don't know if it made me a better writer but this book on writing by Terry Brooks was one of the more entertaining reads on the craft that I have read.
