OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question: It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

Spring has finally sprung

And with it, the end of my creative life.

Since I work from home, the only opportunity I have to get anything accomplished is when my daughter is in school. Weekends? Forget it. I have a kid and a husband to entertain. So these last few days of school have me in a mad panic. Once school is out, I won’t get a pen to paper.

Your Novel, This

Based on my “Beginner’s Guide to NaNoWriMo” blog posts, this book breaks down contemporary plot structure into daily writing goals in order to guide the novice writer through the entire month.

I’m currently looking for ARC reviewers, Bloggers, and/or Podcasters for the publicity campaign for the August release.

If you’d like to participate send me an email michelekellerauthor(at)gmail Thanks!

Now it’s just a race to the finish to see if I can get everything finished before the final bell. (literally)
(Maybe this is the year my daughter discovers “day camp.” I wonder if she can discover all of them?)

Last thing

If you are a querying author, don’t forget about #QuerySwap on June 1. It’s a Twitter party where you pitch your book, find a new critique partner and exchange feedback on query letters. All for free.


Wow, I feel like that was a lot of plugs. Thanks for sticking with me to the end.
