MuseItUp Publishing, the lovely Canadian publisher of my tween book, Summer of the Eagles, is donating 10% of all book sales purchased from their Bookstore during November to the Red Cross. This is towards the aid for the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in the US.
The word count is mounting during my NaNo challenge, although it remains to be seen if I can keep it up for the rest of the month! I'm enjoying writing a contemporary and a short historical at the same time, as it stops me getting bored with one or the other. I have a break in between, of course, and do other things or go out gallavanting. I definitely find train journeys brilliant for writing a few hundred words - a good excuse to go to Glasgow more often perhaps! Then there's the weekly coffee and cake at my favourite Costa in a nearby mall. Who says we need to sit at home to write - the buzz of being among people, but slightly removed from them, seems to bring out my creativity. Anyone else more creative somewhere other than at home?
On with some more work before today's writing group!
