NaNoWriMo 2017 and Where to Find Me

Blank pages can be much scarier than deadly enemies.

 

If you didn’t know already, I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year – I wouldn’t miss it! If you want to hang out, support each other, or cry together, here’s where you can find me during November:

NaNoWriMo’s site. Add me as a writing buddy: https://nanowrimo.org/participants/christie-stratos

Of course you can check out my See What I’m Up To page for more ways to connect with me! 🙂 So far I’ve managed to write 4k+ words and not a single one was on the novella (GREED) I announced on NaNoWriMo’s site. ::sigh:: As long as writing is happening, I’m happy!
