The first Monday of November and there’s much to discuss, so let’s get started.
November brings many things including this year’s peak season for fall foliage. It’sw absolutely beautiful , and I love this time of year. November also brings the start of the holiday season with Thanksgiving. It’s a wonderful time, but shouldn’t be the only time we focus on the blessings and gifts that God has given us.
It also brings us to the National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo as it’s oftern called. NaNoWriMo was started by freelancer Chris Baty in San Fransisco in 1999 with 21 participants. The numbers have grown over the years to more than 200,000. You can learn more by going to the site.
November is also the month I started my new novel The Marisol Deception, (although it won’t be entered in NaNoWriMO). Cadeyrn’s Tale is now off to the editor for the final touches.
The Marisol Deception is purely fictional but is based on the apacolyptic events in the Bible book of Revelation. I’ve set my deadline is for April, 2020. You can read Part 1 of the rough draft here.
A tip for this week – I’ll make it short as I’ve already gone on too long. Surround yourself with good writers that can give you both positive and negative feedback. In our social media age, people are too kind. On HubPages I have to ask for constructive critcism, and even then, I don’t always get it. Positive is good, but unless you’re willing to face the good, the bad, and the ugly, very little progress will ever be made.
So I’m asking you to go back and read Part 1 of the HP rough draft and honestly let me know how I can improve. You can leave your thoughts on the Comments section of HubPages or just add them below in the MVOWC Comments section. I’m willing to do the same for you.
Well, next Monday will be here soon enough, so I’ll leave you for now. See you then!
