The NaNo Trajectory…
When you decided to do NaNo this year you were all
And when Nov. 1 came around, you were like
The first few days were all about
And you were cruising! Life was like
Then you hit a rough patch.
Figuring out that chapter was like

Then week three hit and it was all
And you were like
And you blinked at the calendar because there was no way December was that close, right? It was like

Indies First This Saturday
Do you have books—especially children’s/YA books—on your shopping list this holiday season? Support your local booksellers on Small Business Saturday! I’ll be appearing as a guest author bookseller at two Seattle bookstores as part of the Indies First campaign on the 30th. Come see me at Secret Garden Books in Ballard from 10:00-11:30 am and at University Bookstore on The Ave from 12:00-1:00 pm. I’ll be recommending my favorite kidlit and YA books (and more!) for everyone on your list! I’ll also be signing my own book, if that happens to be on your list. Can’t wait to see you!
