"Camp NaNoWriMo updates for days 2 and 3. Because somehow I forgot to link here about day 2, apparently. I'm already over the halfway point to my goal of 25k, so maybe I could've stood to be more optimistic about how much I could write.…"

Getting Back in the Writing Saddle

Posted on January 12, 2012 at 12:00am 0 Comments

I have a terrible habit of losing all motivation to write every few months and end up screwing around on the internet or in whatever computer game I happen to be interested in at the time (Skyrim and the Sims 3 at the moment, a combination more addictive than chocolate). Regardless of my flighty brain, I always manage to get back to the keyboard, open that Word Doc I left festering and get the hell on with it.

I was crawling through my Wordpress blog, trying to find something I use as a first blog post on this website. I hope you guys don't mind me recycling in this manner.

Hello Anne,

I also write YA with magical elements - I'm new to shewrites and looking for a virtual writing group, or some mutual critique buddies.  I'm at the point where I could use some more serious feedback!  I'm also an avid reader and excited to branch out in YA and make more connections.  If you have any advice or are interested in swapping writing or forming a group, LMK!

My best,

Melanie
