    Thanks! I'll be checking out those links.

    This year I'm doing something completely different, way outside my usual genres.

  2. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm checking out the special offers now.

    I've never been to Absolute Write before and just got sucked in ;)

  3. Thanks so much for mentioning my article! I don't know if I'll be NaNoWriMoing this year, as I'm in the middle of another novel, but if I do, my handle is Yarnsome. I'm looking forward to seeing many of your readers succeed!

  4. Write Anything is doing a workshop for NaNoWriMo. Which is nice cause I feel frozen, working my way up to being stuck. :) Anyway, Write Anything linked to your site which is how I wound up here.

  5. I'm the official NaNo cheerleader for a friend of mine. hehe

  6. Hi Lynn,
    I love your work and I was wondering where you went to school?

  7. Thanks for these, Lynn, I'm gonna need all the help I can get...

    Hope all is well.


  9. For the first time ever, I think I'm going to do NaNoWriMo... I do need to work on an outline over the next week, though, or I'll never get it done within the month. A friend and I are both going to take the plunge.

    Thanks for the links!
