Hi there -- just wanted to drop by your page and invite you personally (or at least virtually) to our first-ever She Writes Washington D.C. meetup, celebrating our first-anniversary! We are so grateful to the event's organizer, Ananda Leeke, for taking a risk and stepping up to host. I hope you will support her and bring yourself and other women who write (no need for them to be members) to the Washington D.C. gathering. At the meetup writers will take part in the She Writes "Book Communion," where attendees arrive with one book, their own or another She Writers', new or gently used, and leave with another book as a meaningfully way to support one another's work. We will also be blowing out a candle and making a wish for our upcoming writing year -- along with She Writers gathering in 16 cities around the country. I hope you will be part of this historic (well, at least kind of cool) occasion, and RSVP now to Ananda here.
Hi, Danielle, Thanks for your kind words. I'll visit your site this afternoon. I'm on Twitter @JulieLakehomer, but there were technical difficulties there yesterday. Hopefully they'll be solved soon. Looking forward to getting to know you too. More later. JSL
I am holding my fingers crossed that Nano will help you get a good-sized chunk of your novel done.
