Happy Thanksgiving and Almost End of NaNoWriMo!

Happy Turkey Day All!

For all of you writers out there participating in NaNoWriMo and sweating your way to the finish line this Sunday, you can do it!

I am majorly impressed with anyone who wins NaNoWriMo as here I am attempting to keep my focus with my official writing hat, and I’m only at 20k. (No I will not pull all nighters trying to get to 50k in 4 days.)Mary_C_Moore.JPG.jpg

As you can see I’m not getting a lot of writing done. On the plus side, I have managed to respond to many waiting queries, so some benefited from my procrastination.

Cheerleading aside, please remember to edit your NaNoWriMo novels come December. The last thing an agent or editor wants to see is a manuscript that was banged out in a month. Revise, rewrite, reread.

Write on.

On Faculty at the Whidbey Writer’s Conference

Hello all you wonderful peeps. I will be on faculty at the Whidbey Writer’s Conference this year! Packing my bags as we speak and preparing for a lovely weekend here:

…where on Friday I will be speaking at one of their infamous “Chat House Sessions” with the talented agent Margaret Bail of Inkling Literary. We will attempt to cover what an agent can offer an indie author and what an indie author can anticipate when trying to get an agent. On Saturday I will be listening to author pitches and hopefully finding some gems. As I am not open to unsolicited queries, conferences are a great way for authors to get my attention.

If you are there, say hello!
