From INKSPILL 2017 The Editors
Finding your voice and what editors look for.
Yesterday we opened the Archive and shared some posts from previous years of INKSPILL. Today the Archive opens once more – an offering from 2015 a workshop on Creating Characters by me, Nina Lewis.
I am still undecided on whether I am attempting NaNoWriMo 2014 or not yet, if I do it will be to work on short stories, several of them.
In 2013, when I started writing again, I discovered NaNo in early Spring and was gutted I had to wait until Autumn. I took part in both the Camp NaNoWriMo Spring and Summer – produced 50K on a non-fiction book which is writing in progress and currently somewhere beyond 90K words, I worked on a series of short stories for the summer camp, by the real event in November I was primed and ready and created half a novel that I haven’t touched it since.
What I did do successfully, was blog. Just in case you know nothing of this month of madness have a look HERE
Here are links to archive posts for any of you considering locking yourself in for November and writing until your head hurts!
This is just a sample – there are over 8 pages of Nano posts on the blog, that’s over 100 posts easily!
Search yourselves, scroll down to bottom of webpage – look in Categories – choose NaNoWriMo and have a splash about!
