It’s #nanowrimo – 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐍𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐥 𝐖𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡.
Years back this month came to my attention as a number of people I knew “on the internet” were participating and writing 50,000 words in one month! WOW!
I tried my hand at it and unlike a normal person I couldn’t just open Word or something, so I put effort into building a free writing site based on a point system to keep everyone participating. We had 500+ members.
Oddly, the next month I did write a 50,000+ word story but it never saw the light of day.
Then one day a few years later after some dust settled after some major life changes, I wrote my first nonfiction, then the next, then the next, then the next.
Then I wrote my first epic, and the duet, and last month published the prequel – 𝑼𝒑𝒔𝒊𝒅𝒆 𝑫𝒐𝒘𝒏.
Last week I met with another book club to discuss 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒘𝒐𝒓𝒅 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒖𝒏𝒇𝒍𝒐𝒘𝒆𝒓 and it was one of the most unique and fascinating (and vulnerable) experiences I’ve ever had.
Everything starts somewhere, and writing starts with one thing: giving yourself a license to write.
So if you don’t want to give it, I’m giving it to you.
Here. Hold on to this, because I am introducing something beyond the podcast to help you write a book.
Upside Down has joined the epic duet of The Sword and the Sunflower and Amira. Upside Down is the prequel for those who have read the duet and have to know more about what happened in those thousand years… Btw, The Sword and the Sunflower is now available as an audiobook (audible, Apple, Google, Your Local Library). Check it out.
