I finished the first draft of my YA novel, Goliath Water, with 51,843 words on the 27th at 9:00am. I really enjoyed the experience, felt it was a fun way to jump into fiction, and that it was a great success, in part(and not a small one) because of Kristen Lamb. I’ve been reading her blog for over a year, collecting articles about structure, scene and sequel, the big boss troublemaker…and how to make sure I didn’t end up with a hot mess at the end of the month. I definitely would have without Ms. Lamb’s assistance. I just wanted to say thanks.
If you write or have an artist’s social media platform I highly recommend Kristen’s blog. She is knowledgeable, funny and generous. I couldn’t have done WriMo without her.
Thank you to those of you who followed me on twitter and were patient and encouraging during my hiatus. It’s great to be back!
Who are your online mentors? I’d love to check them out.
