NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH

In just a few days national novel writing month begins and I am ready. This is a fun event I participate in every year. It's a neat way to meet other writers and you learn a lot in the process as well. I will never forget the first time I did this. My computer decided to crash mid-way through and I was too stupid to back anything up so needless to say I lost it all but it was still fun not to mention I now had a good excuse to buy a new computer. I read Chris Baty's book 'NO PLOT NO PROBLEM'' and have been hooked. Now I write this way all the time and with a descent computer I can now load my manuscript to their word count and get one of those nice glowy halo thingys. If you've always wanted to write a novel or learn a lot about the craft in general I suggest you sign up for this. You won't be sorry. You will also get to meet some really nice people along the way as well.

Thanks for stopping by

YOU CAN IF YOU THINK YOU CAN

Read a book that will change your life. This book is written by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and is loaded with information that will change your mindset which is the key element in achieving the things you want out of life. Take a couple of months and read this book along with your bible highlighting the scriptures and write them down on an index card and keep them with you throughout the day. I promise you it will make a world of difference at home and at work.

Never talk defeat.

There may be a tiger in your tank, but there for sure is an eagle in your mind.
