News bulletin #3 – The Pinterest board is a work in progress, but the lovely pictures I’ve found so far should give you a taste of what the characters see in England. If you have a favorite location or picture, feel free to comment on the photo, because I’d love to know!
News bulletin #4 – I am a notoriously slow writer, so making the commitment on an official website to write at least 10,000 words in the month of April was kind of a big step for me. I’m very excited about making this a priority, though, and seeing some headway on my current WIP. I’m looking forward to watching the statistics graph as I register my word count each day. :) Ten thousand words is a safe but low goal, so I’m hoping to do far more than that.
This doesn’t exactly make front page news in this newspaper, since it’s not about writing, but it is tied in with England Adventure. The chinaware pattern “blue willow” becomes a symbol in the novel (you’ll have to read it to find out how! :) ). Mrs. Endicott owns a set and Marielle is enamored with it. I'm pretty crazy about it myself! It’s been my desire for a while to have a dinner set, because it’s my absolute favorite china design, and last week, I was blessed to find one in like-new condition for a great bargain. Marielle would be just as excited about owning it as I am! If you’d like to read a blog post about blue willow and an excerpt from my book, click here.
Have you ever done Camp NaNoWriMo or the daunting NaNoWriMo?
