Positively Indecisive

Despite my best efforts and fabulous list-making skills, I still haven't come to a decision on the NaNoWriMo front. I've got one foot planted more firmly in the Yes camp than the No one, though. Which, I suppose, is a start. I've even started a rough outline for a novel I just may work on next month. Given those facts, I suppose you could say that I HAVE made up my mind to participate. Which is probably true.

But still.

I have reservations.

I'm sure we all know I'll do it, though.

The blogosphere is abuzz with NaNoWriMo posts these days. Seems every writer with a blog has something to say about this fabulous, insane month. And why wouldn't they? NaNo is awesome!

Anyway, I've been hoarding links again. And, you guessed it, most of them are about NaNoWriMo. And so I decided to share them with you lovely people.

Elizabeth Spann Craig of Mystery Writing is Murder shared some great links in her post All about NaNoWriMo

Over at Terrible Minds, there's a super-awesome list of 25 Things You Should Know about NaNoWriMo

And storyfix.com is doing a month-long series, How to Nail Your NaNoWriMo Lots of useful advice here!

Hopefully those of you participating will find some golden nuggets of information in these links. And, heck, even if you're not!

In the meantime, I'm off to figure out what my potential NaNo MC's name will be...

From My Inbox

My email Inbox is stuffed full of links I've sent to myself from my phone. I read blogs and sites on my phone when I'm away from home and bored and ship the ones I want to read again or share here to myself. Today, I figured I'd actually share some of those links!

First up, this wonderful post via Michelle Davidson Argyle at The Innocent Flower. It was actually a guest post on her blog, but the advice is priceless: Simple Things I Wish I'd Known About Writing

Next up is a site I frequent a lot: Storywonk. I love Lani Diane Rich - her novels are fantastic. And that she shares so much advice makes me love her even more. Her podcasts are not only informative, but super entertaining. This particular session is about names. I know all of us struggle with naming our characters at some point or another. I know I did with my last project! Anyway, here it is: By Any Other Name

I loved this post about hope and dreams. One of these days, I'll have to write about the amazing people who fanned the flames of MY writing dreams... Who Started Your Dream?

Alright, that's all for now, folks. I just might have to do a few more installments. My inbox is filled with wonderful blog posts and useful articles! Oh, and if you're wondering if I've made up my mind about NaNoWriMo...well, not yet. I'm sitting down to night to make a Pros and Cons list. I'll let you know how it goes!
