I hope you’ve been doing well! Today I wanted to tell you about an interview of me at Homeschool Authors and a giveaway of a signed print copy of one of my novels. Click here to read the interview and enter the giveaway!
In other news, Camp NaNoWriMo is approaching the finish line—April 30 at midnight—but I and my goal are safely beyond that line. I reached it on April 25, and it was just in time, because my writing lungs were running out of inspiration. I am so glad I participated, though! It really sped along my WIP and, equally if not more importantly, showed me that I’m capable of writing more words, more quickly, than I had thought. It just takes discipline. There were days I didn’t feel I had the time or the inspiration to write, but I put aside everything that could be put aside and pressed out those words until it was safe to stop. The temptation now, however, is to ride on that wave of success for a while as I give attention to other things that waited patiently while I was writing—but my goal is to keep working consistently until this novel is finished! Why else did I learn those discipline lessons that Camp NaNo taught me? So all in all this has been a very profitable experience!
If you write, do you work best being consistent, writing some almost every day, or do you do it in long spurts?
