Be Successful This NaNoWriMo with Idea Sparks!

Hey everyone! I’m excited to have my friend and author Michelle Lim here today talking about writing and her new book. If you’re a writer, then you’ve heard of NaNoWrimo. Writing a book in a month! Michelle has some great tips and her new book is loaded with them. Welcome, Michelle! Take it away.

to NaNoWrimo with Success – Idea Sparking Style
Are you crazy enough to try to write a novel in a
month? I am. Two years of success and one of failure have taught me a few
strategies to keep my novel-in-a-month plan on track.
NaNoWriMo success and failure comes down to a few
key elements. Not caffeine, chocolate, or bon bons. These indulgences might
help you be successful, but they won’t be the determining factors.
Success on the thirty-day novel path involves
determination, a support group, writing reflection, and inspiration. The
determination is something you will have to glean from inside yourself, but the
rest can be purposefully sought out and planned.

to NaNoWriMo with Success – Idea Sparking Style:

a novel in a month takes Olympic style determination. Find articles, short
stories, and pictures that inspire you to keep pushing past the pain of this
journey. Pin them up around your writing space or keep them next to you to look
at when you need them.

Your Support Group.
Mentors, writing pals, encouragers, and
accountability buddies are key to your writing success. Connect with these
friends as you begin your thirty-day novel journey and plan how they can help.
Bringing in dinner, calling to talk about your story, reminding you that you
are brilliant are all things that will keep you going in the difficult moments.

and Inspiration.
After my experiences on the thirty-day
novel journey, I realized that writers needed a resource to help them on the
writing journey. That inspired my new book: Idea
Sparking: 30 Idea Sparks to Write a Novel in a Month.

So here is the back cover blurb for the final novella: 

Successful bistro owner and worship leader, Sierra
Bradley appears to have it all together, but inside she’s a hot mess. Often
dictated by fear, Sierra regrets not eloping with high school sweetheart, Ezra
Alcott. Now he’s returned to Mistletoe to sketch behind-the-scenes portraits
for his sister’s wedding and Sierra has agreed to cater the event. With no
escape from crossing paths, she has to deal with the heartache of what might
have been.
Ezra Alcott left for France to make his mark on the
art world and nurse the pain of rejection. But somewhere along the way he lost
sight of the kind of man he wanted to become. Back in his sleepy hometown, he
realizes God might be giving him a blank canvas to start over.

If Ezra can find the strength to ask for a second
chance, and Sierra can trust God with the things she can’t see, they might be
able to paint a lifetime together. 
If you’ve read the prior novellas, I’d love for you to leave a short (doesn’t have to be a professional) review on Amazon and Goodreads. You can simply copy/paste the same review on both sites! This would really help this ole girl out! Thank you!
So tell me, what is your favorite season?
