WriMo-ers and RevMo-ers Unite!

Take a deep breath. Now let it out. Whew!

So how are revisions going? Still hanging in there? Yep. Falling behind on my daily goals, but I will make up for it!

How about NanoWriMo? Still writing? Keeping that word count up?

Well, I have a few links to help both causes!!
Plus two links I forgot to add on Wednesday to help with getting your book some press are:

And I know I've been slacking on my telling you what's going on duties - because so much is going on! Well, get out your calendars! You may have noticed my exploding side bar - many fests and activities coming up after the slow month of November, but wait! Still some things are happening next week...

Starting Monday, Nov 12th, M Pax is releasing the Renaissance of Hetty Locklear with a full on Jousting Tournament!

I'll be joining Shelly Brown, Jolene Perry, Randy Lindsay, and James Duckettfor on Monday, Nov 12th in the fight against the robot menace! Captcha Craptcha Day! Their goal - to educate other bloggers about the dangers of captcha, the biggest being loss of comments!

Also on Nov 12th I am participating in Cleaning my Shelves - I will be giving away a couple of books that need reading by others! That's something I'm going to miss when paperbacks go away, sharing books with friends! (NOTE: I Am A Reader, Not a Writer does bucoos of blog hops and giveaways all the time!)

A special fest you don't want to miss, hosted by Andrew Leon, Matthew MacNish, and Alex the Great is coming up on 11/16, "Oh, How I Miss You Blogfest"

In case you haven't heard, Michael Offutt has released his sequel to Slipstream, Oculus! And it was an early surprise to him too! I'm excited to read about the math!

Dec 14th - Get your Hobbit on for M Pax and Tyrean's Hobbit Fest! I am reading it to my boys to get ready!

Cherie Colyer is having a book birthday bash for Embrace Dec 17-21 with a lovely giveaway!

Dec 10-12 an amazing group of bloggers is hosting Time to Give Back Blogfest - what all is involved will be revealed in time... Mark “The Madman” Koopmans, ”Marvelous” Morgan Shamy, Stephen “Breakthrough” Tremp, and David “Kingpin” Powers King. Love the nicknames!

And ready for 2013?
I know I'll still be editing, that's a given. So I'm participating in a New Year's Revising Conference, Jan 4-6 at Operation Awesome!

Happy Holiday Season! Have a fun filled writing weekend!

Thanks for mentioning our blogfest! And those nicknames are going to stick whether they want them to or not.
Jousting next week and signed up for the Hobbit blogfest.

Julie Luek said...

A lot going on-- thanks for the heads up and for the links. I see at least a couple I should go check out.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Oh wow! There's tons of great stuff coming up. Thanks for all the links, Tara. :D

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Whew! :)

My writing/revising has hit a standstill - must. get. moving.

Those tips from Chuck Wendig are awesome. Good timing - just ordered his book BLACKBIRDS. :)

Emily R. King said...

Thanks for all the info. I had no idea half of these blog hops were happening!

So much going on! And look at Michael's new cover. I missed that somehow this week. It looks amazing!

Ink in the Book said...

Thank you for the shout out! I appreciate it! Best wishes with NaNo and revisions!

E. Arroyo said...

Wow...that's a lot! And...I, um, tagged you with The Next Big Thing meme over on my blog. Take it at will. =)

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, look what a lot of news you have! Thank you for compiling all that. I'm so bad about keeping track.

As for NaNoWriMo... I'm on track, but mostly because I started out so strong. This week I was a lot slower.

Shallee said...

Great links for NaNo! I'm behind, but I'm not worried. I'll do my best, try to catch up, but as long as I'm getting words on the page, I'm happy. :)

Rena said...

Thanks for the links. That's so much stuff going on! Yikes!

Julie said...

Thanks for the NaNo links! I'm behind, and need the motivation.

Wow, there are so many great events coming up. Thanks for getting this all together and sharing it. Have a great weekend, Tara! :)

Christine Rains said...

So many great things going on! I'm still keeping up my NaNo word count even though I might lose some today because I'm so exhausted. I did finish my revisions for my newest novella. Woot! Have a fantastic weekend!

Angela Brown said...

With all these events, it will take me a moment to check and see what all I can participate.

However, I am definitely jousting for Hetty's release day. Ghost Knight was here. Woot!

Livia said...

The blogosphere is busy! It seems like it's always busy in this writing commununity so I participate in a few blogfests at a time.

I'm participating in the Hetty's release and the Miss You blogfest! Looking forward to it! And definitely, I'll be signing up for the Giving Back blogfest! It's a given - with those awesome people, I must!

Have a great weekend, Tara!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks for the shout out for Hobbit Fest!!! I am so into procrastination today . . .I can't follow those links, but I'll bookmark them for later. I need to do a NaNo sprint session, followed by a three paragraph revision session, and then I'm going to call it a day. . . .and I am far behind my goals. But tomorrow is Saturday, right? My kids will sleep in, and . . .I'll have oodles of time to right. I hope.

LisaAnn said...

Great events and links! Thanks so much for the info!

Heather Murphy said...

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Cheers Hilary

Mark Murata said...

I'm definitely submitting a couple of manuscripts before the Nanowrimo-ers get done and start bombarding editors and agents with theirs.

cleemckenzie said...
