Friday Ramblings From An Author-The Countdown to NaNoWriMo Begins

Oh no, it’s snowing, breezy and cold. I always try to find an upside to everything and today I’m telling myself it means I’ll spend more time inside writing!

NaNoWriMo begins on Wednesday. Who’s taking part? I might try and finish my mystery and also I have a brand new project. Someone asked me to recommend some novel writing books and yes, I’m going to list my favorite ones here very soon but it got me thinking. When I think it usually turns into a new project. I’m going to write my own how to write a novel book. I’ve already written how to write a romance but I know not everyone wants to write on of those so hopefully this one will be for the rest of the aspiring authors out there. I’ve sat down and outlined it and I want it to be the go to book for people who want to write a book. A tall order I know but I hope to make it the sort of book people will still read for years to come. So possibly that might be my other NaNoWriMo challenge. I know it’s non-fiction but the idea is to write and write and write.

I’m also teaching three workshops beginning on Wednesday… the last of the year

Here’s the line up if anyone’s interested-

If you’re thinking about writing a romance novel or just want to refresher course then this class if for you. A two week, how to write a romance novel offered through the Outreach Chapter of RWA.

Maybe you’d like to finish off the year with some new synopsis writing skills, if so then my Synopsis Boot Camp is perfect for you. It’s a two week course offered through Low Country Romance Writers

And finally if you’re thinking about becoming a short story writer in 2018 then learn the tricks of the trade with this month long workshop offered through Yosemite Romance writers-


And I even got another story revamped and added a new chapter and just in time for Halloween, here’s the cover-


I am Jane



Have a fun week and happy writing to all.
