Shannon Lee Alexander, Author of LIFE AFTER JULIET, Offers Camp “NaNoReMo” Advice!

In case you missed it, I reviewed Shannon’s LIFE AFTER JULIET here! (Spoiler alert–SO GOOD!)   Hello, Campers! It’s Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) time! Anyone ever thought about writing a novel in a month? No? Me either. Some people can be creative under pressure, but I don’t work that way. My creativity shuts down in a big hurry when I’m being pushed to create. Now, if it were Camp NaNoReMo (National Novel Revision Month), then I’d be totally game. I’d be the first one sitting around that campfire singing Kumbaya! We could sit around roasting marshmallows and feeding the…

Bonus Saturday Morning Video: Get Ready for NaNoWriMo with founder Chris Baty!

ONE WEEK TO GO. I will be ready. Maybe. Probably. I hope…. What is NaNoWriMo? I’m so glad you asked! Hear all about it from Chris Baty himself–the guy who wrote No Plot? No Problem! and started this whole crazy shebang. The audio’s not great for the first few minutes of the video, but the problem is resolved fairly quickly, so it’s worth it to stick with it.
