Little did I know back in 2010 when I took a flyer on National Novel Writing Month that a writing marathon, then something of a whim for me, would turn out to be my writing modus operandi.
It’s for certain that had I not done NaNoWriMo, my first published novel, The Lost King, would still be languishing in a notebook and not residing happily in the hands of readers.
So I was more than willing to talk about my experience with writer and writing coach Rochelle Melander. My comments appear in her “Cross the finish line with A Writing Marathon” story in the May, 2012, The Writer magazine. The publication of her story is timely as I’m psyching myself up for Camp NaNo, a summer writing marathon,with lots of good tips for my next sprint. Yup, I’m starting another novel.
