Somehow today I wrote two—count ’em, two—blog posts. Oh my!

The first is for YA Outside the Lines. The theme this month is heroes, I tackle a thornier side of the topic in “Nothing Special.”

In my second post, I visit the Not the Usual Suspect Facebook Group to talk about writing in Oregon. I go on to share a little about the world-building I’m doing for my current work-in-progress, a mystery set in a fictional Oregon High Desert county.

Speaking of my work-in-progress, for this year’s NaNoWriMo, my goal is to make significant progress, if not finish a first draft. I’m somewhere around half-done (which could mean I’m one-third done or two-thirds done or who knows until it’s actually done done). So far, so good. I made a major plot breakthrough yesterday, saw my way past a sticking point that had been troubling me for months. I’ll need to do some revisions in the work already done as a result, but I’ll worry about that later. For now, it’s forward to the Full Draft One finish line.

Finally, a reminder about my appearance on the Sentence to Paragraph podcast, where I discuss my process and a lot more.
