Five for Friday

1. Pretty good week! I got even more writing done, started taking Unisom for my morning sickness, got interviewed, and ate chocolate after WEEKS of separation.

2. As for that interview, please try to hold your applause, just kidding. Head on over to Little Red Writing Hood if you're curious enough and want to know more about me and my writing. You can also check out the interview I did of Sabrina right here.

3. I'm contemplating doing NaNoWriMo...what do you guys think? I think it's the boost I need to start working on another project I have yet to tackle. Have any of you participated? And if so, how was your experience?

4. I'm also thinking about doing the Twitter thing. How has it worked out for any of you that have accounts? The only thing holding me back is how time consuming social media can be. I have fun reading other people's tweets, but there's not much going on in my life that would interest people, or be enough to update with a 140 characters.

5. Okay, I know I was supposed to do a book review, but other things came up. What can you do? Such is life. I promise to post it next week. The book is You Against Me by Jenny Downham. Look it up if you're curious.

All right. Come back next week to read some more exciting posts about my life and writing! Have a great weekend!


  1. Morning sickness is the WORST!!

    I'm on Twitter, but I am SO not good at it! Some people rock it, though. I guess it all depends on whether or not you think in tweets. :)

  2. NaNoWriMo is a lot of fun, but it does take a good chunk of time. You have to average at least 1600-1700 words a day to get it done. If you think you can handle that, go for it! I did it one year and had fun with it.

    I kind of love Twitter, but there's no doubt that it's fairly time consuming if you let it be. I spend maybe an hour with it a day, but it's very easy to get sucked in for longer if you're not careful.

  3. Oooh, good luck if you do NaNo...I've never done it but I've heard it is amazing:0

  4. Do NANO. It really gets you adrenalized to keep to a productive writing schedule. At the end you have a first draft to stick in a drawer for a later time. I enjoy Twitter, but am not obsessive about it. I think you have to schedule your blogging and Twitter time to stay sane.
