NaNoWriMo Begins Today ~~~~ Write Your Joy!

no-plot-no-problem

Chris Baty, the person who is responsible for this annual crazed race through 50,000 word novels, had this to say:

“As you plan your book … remember, above all else, that your novel is not a self-improvement campaign. Your novel is a spastic, jubilant hoe-down set to your favorite music, a thirty-day visit to a candy store where everything is free and nothing is fattening. When thinking about possible inclusions for your novel, always grab the guilty pleasures over the bran flakes. Write your joy, and good things will follow.” (pg. 88)

Cheers! Gambatte!

For the most part, this blog is about reading and writing m/m romances, but there are a few personal reflections, some writerly information, and a bit of writing practice. Thank you for stopping by.
