The Writing Community

My plotting board

It never fails to astound me how much fun it is to be with a group of writers. The ideas fly as one person mentions something and another goes with that idea and adds to it. And another. And another. It is amazing where group brainstorming can take you.

This week I went to the Nano-Reno Preptober meeting. It’s been awhile since I’ve been in a group of writers, in person. The air is electric as you discuss your genres and subgenres and genre-blending. Find out who is a plotter and who is an pantser. Hear who is writing what for the upcoming Nanowrimo event.

I love the excitement of starting a new book and that was exploding in the room tenfold as everyone talked about their new book or even just the idea for a new book.

Several of the writers the other night were talking about writing their FIRST book. They were excited, and scared, and excited again, all in the course of one meeting.

At the beginning, anything is possible. If you win or not, just remember–no matter your word count, those words are words you didn’t have on October 31st.


Happy Nanowrimo to all!!!
