Long time since I posted any poetry or writing exercises – my poems ebbed during the long dismally hot summer… back in the swing.
I have signed up for NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month] again and am working on character sketches and thinking about what they want to do.
That’s why I’m working so hard on my prep for the holiday shows so I can relax a bit and write like the wind come November.

Here’s some info and writing resources from NaNoWriMo:

A tour of “The NaNoWriMo Library”

November is nearly upon us, and we’re busy putting the final touches on this year’s “NaNoWriMo Library.” Sure, it’s an imaginary place, but that doesn’t mean the stained glass, warm amber light, and enticing smell of books is any less real… Here’s an orientation for this creativity-filled space:
The Reference Portal — Get guidance from published authors on your pressing writing questions. Our NaNo Coaches are porting in for a #NaNoCoach tweet-chat on Wednesday, October 28 at 4 PM PDT (Your Time Zone).

The Community Bridge — Whether your loved ones are near or far, bridge the distance by writing your stories together. Invite someone you know to join you in noveling this November.

The Commitment Tree — Carve out your commitment to your novel. Award yourself the “Tell the World” personal achievement badge after publicly declaring your creative goals.
The Visioning Tower — Want to see your story come to life through art? We’re pairing 30 NaNoWriMo 2015 participants with 30 designers who’ll create cover art to reflect your amazing visions. Take part in the 30 Covers, 30 Days project now.
