After the Fall

Month: November 2019

Nanowrimo and writing around Sherman Oaks.

In Los Angeles and doing nano? Come join us tonight at Panera in Encino from 6:30 to 9:00. I’ll be hosting, there’ll be word wars, chocolate and coffee. The Writers of Sherman Oaks have five write-ins every week of November to push you past the 50k mark.

Here is our calendar of nano events in and around the SF Valley.

We also have weekly write-ins on Saturdays and a critique group on Thursdays the rest of the year. Thursdays at 6:30 in Panera in Studio City and Saturdays 9:30 – noon at Panera in Encino.

First rejection

My winning streak is over. I got my first (quite nice) rejection email this morning. Ouch.

Oh well, as Bond said about the second one being much easier…

Submitting

Yes, this is my fourth novel, well the fourth I’ve completed, but I’m very new to submitting. So far I’ve been slowly trying to find an agent and submit. I’ve managed a full seven of them so far. On the plus side I’ve had zero rejections. Yes, Zero. In your face Ms Rowling.
