A Last-Minute Change of Plans

I'm not writing The Winter Tribes.

Instead I'm writing a new book,  a surprise book.

I'm calling it Sometimes My Mind is in Outer Space.

I will release more information as NaNo unfolds.

Does this mean Ashe and her friends are lost for eternity?


It mean's it's postponed.

By the way, drop a guess as to what Sometimes My Mind is in Outer Space is about. The closest guessers will get a reveal!

What Is NaNo?

Image result for nanowrimo image

NaNoWriMo. I'm sure you've heard of it. Don't confuse it with NaPoWriMo.
Every November, millions of people around the world go entirely insane, lock themselves up in their bedrooms, and create accounts on one of these  sites.

Because it's National Novel Writing Month.

We're all writing novels. (In a month!)

You should do it.

On the adult site, your goal is 50,000 words.Which is a lot. You can write it wherever you please. On notebook paper, on Google Docs, on Word... you could even write on the great app called Werdsmith. May I suggest the app A Novel Idea for outlining?

On the Young Writer's Site, or YWP, you set your own goal.  You can write anywhere, of course, but this year you can write it on the site,a convenience not had previously.

NaNo is a GREAT opportunity to accomplish something amazing. It'll give you bragging rights for eternity, you know?


So. Who's doing it? Who isn't?

EDIT: I apologize to house elves everywhere for my former title.

Diving Right In To NaNo: The Winter Tribes

Hello, fellow writers! I thought I'd start a tag called Diving Right Into NaNo. If you want to participate, I'd love to hear about your novel! I recommend that you use Canva if you want to make an image like mine. 


Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Plot: Ashe and Rose, two sisters different as night and day. A Prophecy has spoken: Death of Ash, rise of light. Death of Day, rise of light. Ashe has been told all her life that she is promised to the Winter Tribes, the ones of the North. Her parents, however, are working as hard as they can to make it not work. However, when a note from their leader, Red Greenson (which is his name until further notice) arrives. It says that they will raid their village unless they get Ashe. Ashe's parents say they'll fight, but Ashe knows there will be less bloodshed if she leaves.

Whilst there, she encounters two witches, a good one and a bad one. The bad witch's only purpose in life is to hurt Ashe, because of a crazy backstory I'm still working on. The  good witch tells Ashe to embrace her destiny and become Queen of Winter.

That's only part of the adventure! I'm so excited for NaNo this year!

But guess who is ready to finish Ninjas of Time, have Naomi write her response to Molly, finally email Loren back, and post about NaNo and stuff and...

Well, by now you know: Me.

P.S. because NaNo's new site won't have signatures, here's my current signature, just for remembering:

Thanks, Coralie!
 wait for me to come home
