November: time to dig deeper

Whew, that was a lot of food. Thanks to all of the Book Cooks! All of you helped make readergirlz' Teen Read Week celebration (and the many associated graphics) possible in the yummiest way!

So what is happening in November? NANOWRIMO, for one. Anyone participating?

As for me, I'm knee-deep in NANO-Revise-O and will be all this month. (Well, hopefully not ALL this month...I do have some critical recreation planned to celebrate the 10 year anniversary with my best friend and partner in life and crime!)

So aside from quality time with my sweetheart, there will probably be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth as I work through the painful (for me, anyway) revision process of novel #2.

Luckily, I won't have to go it alone: I'm participating in Molly Blaisdell's Golden Coffee Cup, and I also invite all of you to hang out here at my blog to give me a little licorice lash now and then!

(And by the way, did you know there is a National Red Licorice Day? Well, you do now.)

Together, we can make it through NANO-Whatever-O. Lash on!


  1. Go Holly!
    Too late for me with the Golden Coffee Cup, but I will cheer you on in your Nano-Revise-O! My goal is to complete the first draft of my MG fiction this month.

    Did you see Laurie Halse Anderson's post on what she's calling her NaNo? Very amusing.

    Congratulations on the ten-year and have fun celebrating!

  2. The Book Cooks series was really fun, Holly, thanks! Good luck with your NaNoReMo; that's pretty much what I'll be doing, too.

  3. Thanks, Angelina and Joni! I'm in great company this month.

  4. I was all geared up for NaNoWriMo, but now have revision notes on my desk -yay!- so I'll be joining you in NaNo-Revise-O. (I'll also be taking time off to celebrate my anniversary this month!)

    Good luck with your revisions!

  5. im in nanowrimo! good luc with revisions.

  6. May your keypads be on fire, Shari and Shelli!

  7. Holli and Shiraz, if you hurry, you can catch up to us: 34 years and holding!

  8. 10 years -congratulations Holly! And be joyous in your Nano-Revise-O, because it will turn into a Book-O! My word is "ables". I like that. You are "ables" to revise your novel this month.

  9. Kirby, that is superb! Congratulations!

    Oh, Julie, thank you! You en-ables me!
