Commitment and a great way to pay it forward

Last year, I planned to participate in NaNoWriMo, but it didn't happen. This year, when two writer friends asked if I was going to join them in the month of insanity, I waffled. And then I decided to commit.

Why share this with you? Largely because it means I will have even less time available for blogging than I've had over the past few months. As a result, my schedule is going to change to twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) for the foreseeable future.

Now for a bit of news. If you weren't aware, Authoress at Miss Snark's First Victim is holding another Baker's Dozen auction. The adult entries are now closed, but MG/YA entries can be submitted on Nov. 1 and 3. In the mean time, check out Write Escape and help my delightful new CP, Linda (Escape Artist) provide some feedback to help writers polish their first 250 words.

Have a wonderful start to your week!


  1. Congratulations! I'll be part of your cheering committee. :-)

  2. Wow, Alison. I'm jealous, because I never have time for Nano. You'll get so much done, it will be awesome!! I will be cheering you on.

  3. Alison, It's great that you're doing this year. I've been working hard on my MG novel and have considered doing this, I actually got a schedule of events from my local library. It all sounds so great - participate in these events, meet local writers, and write 50K words! But - there's the time factor. Well, maybe I'll still do it. I've got a few days to decide. But - enough about me, good luck to you!!
