Is it really November 16th already?! The middle of the month can be a bit of a drag, but if you're feeling this way right now, Neil Gaiman has a great piece of advice. He says: "How do you do it? You do it."

Hang in there, writers. Even if you're behind, or even if you're stuck in the "middle" of your book, stick with it! Even if you're worried that you can't win, go look at your stats. Maybe you need to write 2K per day to win now, but hey, that's not much more than the regular writing goal already! Go one sentence at a time, 50 words at a time, if you have to, and progress will beget progress.

I believe in you!

One week has flown by ... but there are still three more NaNoWriMo weeks to go. Both of your MLs must admit that we are, well, *several* days behind, but never give up! -- never surrender! You can do this, we can do this, si se puede! :)

Happy NaNoWriMo! The time is here, time to write like no other! And that's just what I want us all to do, write! Whether you already have an idea, or you are just going with the whims of your creative mind. So get comfy, get your supplies, and start writing!

Let's talk about your novel!

NaNoWriMo is two days away, and in the Riverside County forums, I've added two new threads: "Talk about your novel!" and "Last line of the night." I wanted to encourage everyone to join these threads for our region. Chatting with a small, curated group of people allows for much stronger connections and makes the forum conversations less overwhelming to follow.

Several of us are already encouraging each other's ideas and getting excited to hear more :)

Thanks to everyone who attended our Tio's Tacos kickoff event on Sunday. It was wonderful to meet fellow writers and get excited for the month ahead!

If you weren't able to make it, there are some great events coming up in other areas, which include the Let's Get it Started November 1st write-in at the Tyler Panera Bread (6:30 PM to 8 PM) and Perris Branch Library write-ins every Saturday of November (10 AM to 2 PM).

Be sure to check our regional calendar to find an event near you. You're also welcome to plan your own and let me know the time and place via NaNoMail so that I can add it to the calendar.
