So, I'm going to be out of town for the rest of the week. Myself, Twin and our mom are flying down to Chicago to visit with Youngest Sister. Then, next week I actually have to go into the office for work for some huge-o project I'm involved in, which means around a 3 hour commute each day, which also means that I won't be online hardly at all.
So, this will be my last blog post for about a week.
Also, I realize I forgot to post my NaNo username for anyone who wants to be buddies. It's Falen1
(natch). The new website appears to be up and running, so I'll probably be messing around there at least once a day.
Also, if you're participating in NaNo, don't forget to also participate in 30 Covers in 30 Days
. This is the contest where you can win a book cover done by a graphic artist. You can see the one I won last year on my sidebar. Needless to say, I Love it, and think everyone should participate for a chance.
A lot of people don't know how that part of NaNo works so I'll give you a quick breakdown.
Under the NaNo forums, there's a forum titled 30 Covers in 30 days
(there's nothing in there yet because of the website change, but soon there will be some announcements and junk)
You only need 2 things to be eligible to win a cover - A novel title, and a novel synopsis. Make sure you've updated your author page with both these things and you are entered.
BUT! Usually in the forum, there's a place where you can nominate yourself or someone else, to draw attention to an awesome synopsis etc.
There's usually either a forum post where you can nominate yourself, or a form you can fill out . There will be an announcement in the forum once they've got this set up.
And that's it!
Definitely take advantage of it, I will be, because it takes very little effort on your part.
And that's pretty much all I had for today. I'm flying out early tomorrow morning, so I'll chat with you all when I'm back online.
Have a great weekend!
