Joyful Writing Month JOYWRIMO Has Commenced!


Time to start our new November project...JOYWRIMO!

A whole month of being happy. Can we do it?

[YES WE CAN]


The rules of this game...none. Anything goes! Here's a link to explain what this is all about.

Do what you can, when you can. No guilt. Reach out for support.

Most important: FIND JOY IN YOUR WRITING!





✵When you find joy, your writing shines✵


I thought we could start off the first day by sharing what we find most joyful about our own writing, our own writing process.

I see a lot of folks talk about FEAR when they start a new project. They say it's the worst part of writing a book. The very beginning.

Oddly enough, I have the opposite experience!

My favorite part of writing a book is the beginning.

Probably because I'm a "pantser" not a "plotter." For me, it's an exciting time. I have no idea what's going to happen. I have no idea how these characters will grow and develop.

It's like making new friends.

And discovering a story you didn't know existed.

I love this feeling!

This is my most joyful part of writing. Discovering a brand new world.

How about you? What brings you joy with your writing?

Let us know!

Join my posse on Facebook!


BEST OF LUCK TO ALL WITH JOYWRIMO!

I'm putting together thoughts for a brand-new project in a genre I've never worked in before. It's scary and new and I can't wait to get that first sentence down!
