It’s time to put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on my office door. NaNoWriMo is underway!! This is my second year of participating in National Novel Writing Month. My goal: to write 50k words on Heart of a Warrior, my Tudor era romance, during the thirty days of November. This story has been on my mind for several years now, and NaNo is just the motivation I need to finish writing the first draft. So far I’m roughly 2k words ahead of my personal targets. Yay!
On November 1st I attended a Paris Writing Salon Zoom chat to talk about the new Netflix series Emily in Paris. It was a great discussion with Lisa Anselmo, Juliette Sobanet and Garielle Luthy, three writers who’ve lived in and written about Paris. I enjoyed the chat a lot, and was thrilled when I won a two-month subscription to the Paris Writing Salon. I’ve already registered to take the 6-part workshop, Kickstart Your Writing with my FB friend Juliette Sobanet. I can’t wait!
BOOKS TO BINGE
A bunch of Naughty Brits will be my reward for hitting my daily NaNoWriMo goals. I’m excited to escape reality with this contemporary romance by Sarah MacLean, Sophie Jordan, Louisa Edwards, Tessa Gratton, and Sierra Simone. I’m in love with the cover. It’s just…divine!!! Hugs and kisses to my book club pals for choosing this book as their November pick. I can’t wait to chat with them about this brood of sexy Brits.
SHOWS TO BINGE
Have you seen the brand new Netflix series Emily in Paris? I loved it! Yes, it’s riddled with rom-com clichés. Yes, it’s pure fluff filled with French stereotypes. But it’s cute and fun and the best travel porn with a plot. Oh PARIS, je t’aime!!!! And I absolutely adored Lily Collins in this role. I hope we get a second season soon. *fingers crossed*
