Happy Writing Month!

I am so proud of all participants in NaNoWriMo (and AcWriMo) for your dedication to such a daunting and amazing goal! I can’t even commit to writing in a journal everyday; the dust gathering on my many beautiful, half-filled journals can attest to this.

If you are looking for a source of inspiration for writing your great novel or even if you are just looking to get into the spirit of the month without the massive word count, look no further:

For Kids:

For future-Agatha Christies:

A smart, practical, and often funny guide for those who aspire to write mysteries, Sleuth reveals the secrets behind the curtain from a bestselling and award-winning master of the genre. Sadly this one is available until March 2018, but it’s scheduled to be a whole series from established writers on their genre. Perfect for NaNoWriMo 2018!

As Many Prompts As You’ll Ever Need:

Happy writing, all!
