News and announcements

First off, I’d like to announce that my wonderful critique partner, Heidi, has started up a blog with a very interesting story – how her training for a marathon is like writing a novel. 🙂 Check it out at: http://heidichiavaroli.blogspot.com

As a side note- here are the links to my other awesome critique partners!

Next – I’m excited to say my rewrite of my NaNoWriMo manuscript is completed (now for little edits here and there). It has been retitled – “Beautiful Pretense” and I’m now preparing the manuscript proposal for the Oregon Christian Writers Summer Conference.

Finally – I have to highlight the funniest video for writers that I’ve ever seen. If you’ve ever read a Donald Miller book, you will find this even funnier. As a Portlander, it is on a whole other level. Thank you to my fabulous friend, Caitlin, for posting this on her blog! Enjoy!

  • Can’t wait to read the revamped version and like “Beautiful Pretense.” How do you write so fast? 🙂

  • Heidi

    That video is HILARIOUS, Nicole! Thanks for sharing. Thanks also for mentioning my blog. Looking forward to reading “Beautiful Pretense.” Yes, I think Sandy and I are jealous–how do you write so fast?

  • Honestly – I’m really one of those people who has to do things in “stages” – I can go for months without editing a single paragraph but add another 12,000 words and edit it all within a few weeks. That’s really all my schedule allows because of the way my events at work fall and the other commitments I have.

    Glad you enjoyed the video!!
