#1LineWed – Hands

Today’s theme for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, is hands. I just posted one example from WAR: Disruption, the first book in my new romantic thriller series WAR, and will post more throughout the day.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was critters. This is also from WAR: Disruption, which is now available for preorder on iBooks, at Kobo, and at Amazon.

1 Encouragement for #NaNoWriMo

If you’re a writer, chances are you’ve already heard of National Novel Writing Month, aka #NaNoWriMo. That’s when hundreds of thousands of writers across the globe try to write a novel with a minimum of 50,000 words during the month of November.

Although I’m not participating this year, I did just complete my own first draft writing challenge. Based on my recent experience dealing with a high daily word count goal and a short overall completion period, here are a few of my thoughts spiffed up by a nifty graphic.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted when the theme was food and drink. Again, these are from my upcoming book WAR: Disruption.
