November is National Novel Writing Month

Ah, November… when the days get darker earlier, the wind whips through the trees and buildings, and we all turn inwardly, hunkering down in cafes drinking our cappuccinos and lattes. What better way to spend the month than writing a novel. And now there’s a format to do so:

Even if you don’t do the website, winter in Maine is still an ideal setting for writing a novel – I wrote one a few years ago, based on my grandmother’s house in Albany, California. I never attempted to publish it, but what better way to while away a dreary March day than immersing myself into my fantasy world of sunny California, with my imaginary neighborhood full of colorful and interesting buildings and people. I would highly recommend it!
