Step Away From The Computer – NaNoWriMo 4.5 …by Susan Lute
On November 27, 2012 at 7:14am I called NaNo done. I started massive overtime at the day job and for my sanity had to say, enough. But there is a silver lining in all things and though I didn’t “do” NaNo as it is intended to be done, I learned a lot from my first year of attempting a full (almost) month of serious writing.
…I CAN write every day until I write THE END. Okay, I already knew that, but with all the changes in my household, I needed a reminder.
…you know that saying, be one with the ball? I learned NOT to be one with the day job. Be one with Zumba. Be one with a good cup of coffee. Be one with the holiday season. Above all find bliss. I expect it’ll be hard at first, but as the months march along, I also expect it’ll become as easy as eating apple pie.
…oh, and there’s one more thing. When you sincerely ask for something, silently or out loud, it will come to you. As the weeks progressed during NaNo, and I was getting ready to publish A Marine’s Christmas Proposal AND Dragon’s Thief – in tandem, I could clearly see a need for an awesome marketing plan. Out of the blue, our very own Jessie Smith presented a fantastic marketing idea. More to come on that later. In the meantime…drum roll please…be the first <wink> to see the new covers.
Next week I hope to be able to say they’re for sale at your favorite ebook retailer. If you’re an impatient sort like me, you can purchase both at Smashwords now.
PS. For those of you who were so supportive during NaNoWriMo 2012, thank you! For those who participated with me, what did you learn? And if you didn’t participate, what did you read (lucky dogs you)?
