And it's Not Even November!

Hey...did you know that it's NaNoWriMo again? 

Okay, not really...more like Camp NaNoWriMo .

How fun is this?  Well, it's more fun than dental work, anyway.

Camp NaNo is much more laid back than the November version. There is no guy with a stopwatch standing there measuring your word count (and yeah, that metaphor is totally screwed up, but it's Monday, people). 

I signed up to NaNo with my teammates from last November's Savvy Authors Smackdown Bootcamp.  Or Bootcamp Smackdown.  Whatevs.


We are the Dangerous Divas, and we're teamed up again to compete with other teams of Savvy Authors for points, which we get from participating in chatroom/write-ins, word count, and so forth. 

We were compete strangers last fall, but we've kept in touch and become friends. We're at different places in our writing careers...two of us are published, two of us are pre-published, and I am...somewhere in that gray zone, which I'll call "almost published."

I guess you could call me a NaNoWriMo success story, huh?  It's the project that I wrote last fall that got me "the call" from Entangled in January, which led to finding an agent, and needing an Author site on Facebook.  Proof that if you get in there and get to work, and ignore the internal editor that tells you that you suck, you can do it! 

Okay, that's all for today.  I'm trying to blackmail the rest of the Dangerous Diva's into coming here and doing guest posts through out the month of April...if I don't get volunteers, I may start publishing their email addresses here so you you can spam them into showing up...


  1. You're in what I called the "pregnant" phase of the publishing process. Right now it's all about the wait. ;)

  2. I don't know why, but I never do well at Nano! Yay for getting the call from Entangled. :)
