NaNo, ARC #Giveaway, Interview, and Star Wars

I didn’t win NaNo this year, but I’m happy with my 9K words.  We were traveling and spending time with family, but I also figured out some plot points over the holiday.  The characters were talking, and that’s always a good thing.  With so much going on this month, I don’t expect to get many words on the paper, but I’m still mentally planning, so that’s progress.  With Subject A36 being released February 13, 2020, I’m spending a lot of time prepping for that.

Speaking of Subject A36, the ARC giveaway is running through this Wednesday.  If you haven’t entered yet, the details are HERE.  Tell all your friends!

I was featured yesterday on Sci-Fi and Scary for their Women of Sci-Fi.  Lilyn and her team of reviewers give some awesome recommendations on books and movies and very generously feature indie authors.  Check out the interview and excerpt from Subject A36 HERE.

Do you have your tickets for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?  I got mine last week.  It will be a family outing (both sons will be here!) on Christmas Eve, although not being a real fan, hubby will probably snooze through it.  Have a great week!

  1. Even though you didn’t reach the full NaNoWriMo goal, congratulations to you on what you did achieve. Any progress is good, and working out plot points can be tricky and time-consuming, so to achieve as much as you did with holidays and time with people you care about, etc, is awesome!

    I’m ashamed to say I’m behind on Star Wars.

    1. Exactly, Tori – it’s progress. The characters are getting antsy, so when I sit down to write, I expect they’ll be more than anxious to talk, lol.

      You must get caught up on Star Wars! Maybe a binge day? Or weekend depending on how behind you are?


  2. You might not have hit the 50K of NaNo, but words of any amount are never wasted!
    I left you a comment over at Lilyn’s place (that was a great interview) and entered your ARC giveaway. Subject A36 sounds so interesting. I’ll be looking forward to the release!

  3. It’s difficult to keep a writing schedule while traveling, but 9K words isn’t too shabby, Teri. Enjoy the movie! I’m probably the only person on the planet who has never seen a Star Wars movie. One day, maybe I’ll binge watch all of them. 🙂

    1. I didn’t get something out of it, Jina – have a foundation and a solid direction now, so I’ll take it. I’ll overlook your lack of Star Wars obsession and still be friends with you, lol – most of my friends aren’t fans either.

  4. I think you did well, Teri. I also wrote about 9 000 words in November but I know it is an excessively busy month for me so NoNoWriMo definitely won’t work. My boys are also talking about this film. They will see it with my mom and hubby and I will get free time.

    1. Congrats to you also for the new words, Robbie. I think I’ll plan my own NaNo in the first three months of next year. I enjoy free time, but there’s no way I’d pass on a Star Wars film for it, lol.


  5. Have a fabulous holiday with family. I’m sure some plot lines will pop in your head. Make sure you have a pen and paper or a tablet/phone handy to write them down!! I think you did well with 9,000 words!

      1. Haha! Thanks for the reminder. A character has a cat, but she hasn’t gotten into much trouble yet. I’ve just realized that a very odd “human” has taken the spot I might usually give to an animal character. I’m taking a break from that story to get Thistledown out there. But I really need to get back to it. 😀

  6. I’m not a writer so I never participate in NaNoWriMo and I’m always baffled at how much people are able to write. Congratulations on what you did accomplish. Also just wanted to let you know that my copy came in the mail today. Thank you again and I can’t wait to read it.
