Good morning readers! I hope you all had a fun Halloween and a great start to November! If not, don’t worry. We still have an entire month to turn things around. 🙂
I’m checking into the blog this morning to discuss a couple of matters, but first I would like to share some information on my latest book release. Make Me Believe came out on Wednesday and I’m so excited to share it with the world.
Marie Rogers is not best friends with her college roommate. She’s fine with that. She would rather have a roommate that ignores her than a roommate that hates her. But when Alyssa’s plans fall through for Winter Break and she has nowhere to go, Marie knows that the right things to do is to bring Alyssa home with her. While Alyssa experiences what a Rogers family Christmas is like for the first time, Marie is left dealing with her family, her friends, and a person from her past who she isn’t sure whether she can trust.
This Christmas settle down with Make Me Believe, a new adult Christmas romance, and enjoy a festive holiday story filled with humor and heart.
The funny thing to me is that I pressed the publish button right before National Novel Writing Month began, and Make Me Believe was actually my NaNoWriMo project in 2016. I remember writing a lot of it at work because I worked at the front desk of a hotel and on days that we weren’t busy, the lobby was usually dead. I would always keep my Google Drive account open in another tab so that when I had some spare time I could crank out some words to meet my 50k word count goal.
It’s Saturday November 3rd as I write this blog post and we’re 3 days into NaNoWriMo. I’ve been keeping up with my daily goal of 1700 words/day so far because I’ve learned that in order for me to reach my goals, I need to pace myself. It’s the same way I’ve been approaching running when I’m at the gym — My goal is to run 3.5 miles but I run at a slower speed so that I don’t over-do it and quit prematurely.
Does that make sense?
Maybe. Maybe not. All of that is to say that I’ve come up with a method that works for me and I’m sticking to it! I’m so amazed by the writers who knock out thousands of words on their first day of NaNo. My guess is that they’re fueled by passion for their stories. And caffeine. 😉
I have to end this post now because my puppy and I are going on a little road trip today to visit my Grandmother. Good luck with NaNo if you’re participating! And if you want to add me as a writing buddy on the site, my username is Cellospice.
