BLOG RECAPS and UPDATES with Blogger Message!



This month has been pretty exciting and busy for me. As you might have noticed, I don't have as many posts as normal and that's because for the past three years, in the month of November, I take part in something called NanoWriMo for the entire month of November, which is a really neat organization that challenges budding and existing writers to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Doesn't sound to hard, right? I mean, 50,000 words should be easy to pound out. Well, let me tell you. It's not. Pouring your heart and soul into 50,000 words and hoping by the time you're done, you can find the courage to send it out into the world is a lot of fun but also scary. I love being a part of Nano. Like the blogging community, I've met some fascinating and fantastic people through the Nano community, all of us striving for the same goal.. to see our dreams fufilled. 

It's week two and I hit 34k last night. I was so excited when I talleyed up my word count. This is my third year and the two previous years, though I completed my goal of 50,000, I found myself scrambling those last two weeks to get my words in.. usually only by a hairs breath. This year, the story seems to be flowing out of me and I'm hoping thats a sign that I might have something good by the end of the month. We'll see. But for now, I'm happy to have fun spending hours inside my own head, creating a story that speaks to me and maybe one day will speak to others. 

I encourage you to participate in Nano, even if you're not a writer. It's fun. It helps you see the other side of reading and you can meet some amazing people.

Hopefully at the end of the month, I'll be able to report I won and reached my 50,000 word count. Until then... Write On!

What I'm Reading....


I usually keep the month of November light for reading because I'm also writing but I absolutely couldn't deny the chance to read an ARC of ENTHRALL HIM (Enthrall Sessions #3), an erotic romance by the incredibly talented Vanessa Fewings. I've been waiting since the beginning of the summer for this thrid installment and I am not disappointed.

I started this last night and COULD. NOT. put it down. If not for wanting to be conscious for the entire book and not missing one creative word, I would have finished it all in one sitting. 

But no worries because I'll be finishing it today and my review will be posted come release day, which is November 17th. 

Not read the first or second book? You still have time before book three is released. 


Buy the books here:
