From NaNoNovel to published series

I am one of the VERY grateful authors who has had a NaNoNovel published. Mine was my 2006 NaNoNovel, TAKE THE REINS (Simon & Schuster, 2009).

I love, love NaNoWriMo and thought I'd share my journey with you! I blogged a lot during 2006 on my old blog, so I wanted to post the links to the entries and you can see how TTR went from idea to a 20-book series.

Keep in mind, in October, I had no idea what to write and didn't decide until two days before to enter! I was also a 19-year old senior in college at Florida State University taking a full course load. But I WANTED this. No matter how busy you are, treat NaNo like a job and DO IT!

I hope you have fun looking over my timeline! It certainly took me back down memory lane. :)

Lots of hard work and pain went into your first NaNoNovel, but it has paid off for you and your life has changed. You are an inspiration to many writers.

This is really worth reading, it has too much details in it and yet it is so simple to understand
