It's Almost NaNoWriMo! Let's Find Buddies!

Hey all! In case you haven't noticed, it's almost time for National Novel Writing Month!

Let's be real. We've all noticed. I've had a countdown on my whiteboard at work for over a month.

NaNoWriMo is hard. It's a grueling month filled with ups and downs, triumphs and writer's blocks. It's what helped me write the manuscript that got me to sign with my agent - but it's also the writing event that I've participated in for the past five years and only truly won for the first time last year. So what better way to get pumped for November with all its challenges than to find some new writing buddies?

If you're like me and you need a cheerleading squad, or a friend squad to keep you accountable, or even if you want to be a cheerleader for somebody else, drop your NaNoWriMo username in the comments and anything else you'd like other writers to know about you and your work!

Y'all can find me at amren.ortega! This year, I'm writing a YA/NA high fantasy that can be summarized thus: Maline is no stranger to the destruction that demons wreak in Valrasa, but her only interest is becoming the realm's most famous aerialist. When Maline falls for the girl she's competing against, the price of love may be death at a demon's hands.

Good luck to everyone who's participating! I can't wait to see you all out there!
