The Wednesday Writing Worktable: JuNoWriMo Take-Off is Almost Here

Two weeks in a row, I'm working on my Sony Vaio Fit14.

Okay, this week is again on JuNoWriMo. We are days away from the Take-Off.



I'm hellbent and determined; I will finish this WriMo. :) So, what have I been doing?

Finding Fantasy Friday: First Love is like a Fairy Tale?

I can't believe I haven't written this one yet, especially since in my book, Secrets of the Truth, the MC (Meri) has her first love.

Seriously, is there anything more fantastical than your first love? Well, yes, finding that one you realize you can't live without. Sometimes that co-exists. Not so much for me. I went the practice makes perfect route.

I remember as a girl, fantasizing that my first love would be just like a fairy tale. With songs that say, "So this is love. MmmHmmMmm." from Cinderella and "I know you. I walked with you once upon a dream." from Sleeping Beauty, how could a girl not have a picture of what first love is like.

Is love a real life fantasy?

The Wednesday Writing Worktable: Preparing for JuNoWriMo Take-Off

“Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.”—Ray Bradbury

So, I came up with a new series for the blog beside the Finding Fantasy Friday. Yes, I know...more alliteration. It works for me. If you have other suggestions, I'm all ears. I have one other series coming soon, so you guys know what to expect throughout the week. Also, I've gone through the blog, labeling other works that could work in this series, so you can find what you want easier. Now, to the post...

My writing worktable these days is whatever digital device I have in my hands at the time, be it a phone, my Nook, or a computer. Today, I'm working on my new Sony Vaio Fit14, which I love b-t-dubs. Feel free to contact me on here or Twitter or Facebook if you have questions about it. ;)

I've done NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) to write book 2 for the Meridienne Drake Series two years ago. Geez, can't believe it's been that long. I didn't finish it then (only about 35k); I filed it away a few months and finished it in April of the following year. I can't wait until November to write this novel plaguing my brain.

Next month is JuNoWriMo (June Novel Writing Month). Yes, I know many of these are popping up. I know NaNo puts on another one in April. There is also a July one. I'm sure there's more. Why so many? Ernest Hemingway says it best:

"Writing, at its best, is a lonely life."
