Ramping Up for NaNoWriMo

I have decided to do NaNoWriMo again this year after a two-year hiatus. “Why?” Simply put, NaNo has always been a great motivator to me. I like to challenge myself and NaNo allows me to do that.

I thought it would be interesting and appropriate to have Susan on the show to talk about the importance of promotion and to get her take on what writers can do to help […]
