While wandering around youtube, I stumbled on some great videos for romance writers and readers. Some are interviews with successful authors, some are authors giving advice on writing, and some a just plain fun…or a bit irreverent, my favorite kind. So here is the first Video of the Week: An interview with Susan Elizabeth Phillips httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HZGmn2Bymw

Bad, bad, me!  I missed almost a week of writing my daily amount and now I have a huge number of words to write to catch up with my NanoWrimo goal. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to (everyone says that) but that by the time I got done writing for my other work, I was all worded out. It isn’t good to fall behind, though, for more reasons than just keeping the word count up. When I write every day consistently, the words flow easier, freer, and it takes no time at all to get back into the story. I’m a faster writer when I write every day, even…

Since committing to Nanowrimo, I’ve had good days and bad days. And some days when i just forgot to update my Nanowrimo numbers. But I have to say that this is the first time I’ve stuck to writing “something” every single day for 10 days in a row….ever. And I’m having a good time with it. At first, I thought I couldn’t possibly write without editing. I can’t leave typos or misspelled words, but I’m not going back and fixing, editing, putzing with dialogue or sentence structure. I’m just writing, getting it all out and down on paper. And the truth is, although it’s not great, it’s pretty good. Good…

I’m very excited to say that my book, You Belong To Me, has been featured on the site www.her-stories.com, a website for moms.  Wow, that is so cool! The owner of that site is also a member of the RWA online Chapter that I belong to, From The Heart Romance Writers. I’ve been simply amazed and warmed by the support from my writing community at FTHRW …. and other groups and individual friends as well. I guess other writers are the ones who know how scary it can be to put your words out there, to hope someone downloads your book and finds it an enjoyable read. Please visit www.her-stories.com…

Today begins the month-long writing marathon known as NanoWrimo, or National Novel Writing Month. The objective is to write 50,000 words this month, without editing. Just WRITE! Yes,I’m participating. A few years ago I started a novel and then put it aside while writing another. Adirondack Moon is what I currently have named it, although that may change once the story is finished. The story keeps calling me to finish it, and that is what I intend to work on this month. So last night I spent a couple of hours reading the first 8 chapters of the book. That is what I had completed before putting it aside. I…
