March is Here

As March starts we prepare for Spring and everyone's writing times may change, nice weather. We also look forward to CampNaNoWriMo starting April 1st (You can sign up now!). It's also time for Spring Cleaning...
Go through all WIPs and check out if you want to pull them from the 'vault' for CampNaNoWriMo.

Organize:

All notes
Scraps of paper
All note cards
Desk & other writing areas

Stock up on:

notebooks
pens
note cards
printer ink
printer paper

This is also a great time to check out some new writing tools & software. Scrivener, Scapple, Aeon Timeline, Dragon, Ulysses, Focus Writer, Evernote, LibreOffice, and Hemingway.

I personally use Aeon Timeline 2, Scapple & Scrivener. Need help ask and I might be able to help you.

Another great place I like is myWriteClub and of course Twitter!

NEWS!

@FriNightWrites has returned. Fridays at 7pm CT they hold word sprints for several hours. It's called #WriteClub. Check them out on Twitter.

As 2016 Comes to an End

2016 is near its end. As we look back over the year we think about what we have done in aspects to our writing. Good & bad goals and achievements. 
  • Finished a WIP
  • Procrastinated too much
  • Gave up
  • Reached our weekly, monthly goals
  • Missed self scheduled writing times
  • Met new writers
  • Shared your stories
  • Tossed a WIP away
  • Started a new WIP
Those are just some of the things that might be going through your mind. Remember this year we have learned about our failures and achievements, what works better for you, and many other personal things.

Things to help with 2017 goals
  • Set small simple goals
  • Celebrate each goal accomplished
  • Reach out to others that will support you
  • Try CampNaNo & NaNoWriMo
  • Remember even 1 wordie counts to achievement
I challenge each of My Wordlings to engage with at least 2 new writers and smile or laugh when you think you are failing.


This is a short post because it just is. Have a great Holiday season and hope to see you on Fridays.

NaNoWriMo START!

Many have already started NaNoWriMo and some are waiting impatiently. There is a lot going on the 1st few days of writing. So, here is a reminder....
We have Writathons this month and every Friday nights. On Twitter there are many doing wordsprints (wordie grabs)... @NaNoWordSprints is going to be running them all month. Most 24/7 unless there is a small break.
If you want more wordie grabs check out MyWriteClub  You can grab wordies there and t can be lots of fun. My ID is Jessi_Pearson if you want to find me.

If you are still looking for snackies ideas check out our Pinterest boards. There are tons of snackies, character inspiration, meals and 'keep the kids busy' ideas. My favorite is Helpful Hints board. It has tons of things writers need.

Have a great start to NaNoWriMo my Wordlings. See you soon for wordie grabs.
