Don’t let the winter chill cool off your writing. Between the holidays and dark days, winter makes it harder for us to stay focused on our writing.
So I’ve devised a writing strategy fitting for this cold season so that you willingly choose to keep the fire burning beneath your creative passion.
Enough of the winter wordplay! Here are five ways to commit more to your writing this season.

We did it! We all survived National Novel Writing Month: 2017 Edition! Whether or not we reached (or surpassed) 50K words for our novel, the most important thing that came out of this month is that we wrote more words than we probably have all year.
Or is it just me?
Now that it’s December, I wanted to reflect just one more time on this year’s NaNoWriMo experience before I shift my blog posts back to advice and random thoughts on

You won National Novel Writing Month! Now what?
Life after NaNoWriMo can be confusing and anticlimactic—but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s what you can do over the next six months to keep your novel-in-progress in motion.

We’re down to the final seven days of the NaNoWriMo writing challenge! The second half for me is always the hardest because the story becomes more intense and awkward at the same time.
Oh, and did I mention it’s Thanksgiving Week? That throws a plot twist into the writing challenge for me every single year.
So, did I reach my target daily word count goals for National Novel Writing Month? Keep reading.

You meant to cushion your NaNoWriMo word count before Thanksgiving—but clearly that didn’t happen.
If you need to crank out some words for National Novel Writing Month, I have a game plan that lets you both enjoy the holiday and write more of your novel-in-progress.
Yes, you can have your pumpkin pie and eat it too! Here’s how.
Are we already halfway through National Novel Writing Month? I haven’t felt this fatigued and mentally drained since, well, last November!
But let’s get right to it. Did I reach this week’s NaNoWriMo goals? Or did I fail miserably?
I join NaNoWriMo year after year because of the writing community—there’s nothing like it!
I love how writers from everywhere unite for a common, personal writing goal: To finally write that novel. We receive genuine support virtually from writers across the country and globe. And we finally get to meet hundreds of writers within our community during one of the coldest months of the year.
Sadly, there’s always a dark side to even the best of intentions.
