Know the Novel Part 2 – Within the WIP

Part 2 of the Know the Novel link-up has arrived! It’s probably early to be doing this, but I’m super excited to share more about Calligraphy Guild, so… here we are. Part two is all about the writing process!

1. How’s the writing going overall?

NaNoWriMo Week 1 Check-In

I was fully intending to keep up my normal blog schedule this month, since I knew what I was going to write for the first two weeks and I could brainstorm further topics later, but… I then just didn’t get around to actually writing my first post.

Christine Smith is hosting a link-up each month for the next three months (October through December) that’s mainly created for NaNoWriMo authors to share about their NaNoWriMo novels before, during, and after the writing process. (Though you can enjoy the link-up even if you’re not participating in NaNoWriMo!) This month’s link-up is all about introducing your project, so without further ado… an intro to Calligraphy Guild! :) Continue reading “Know the Novel Part 1 – Introduction”

NaNoWriMo Resource Round-Up

NaNoWriMo is a significant undertaking, and it can help a lot to have some resources to fall back on both during prep for November and during the event itself. Here are some of the resources I’ve found helpful in past years. Continue reading “NaNoWriMo Resource Round-Up”
