  • NaNoWriMo is such a wonderful and terrible time. It’s wonderful because there is an entire community of writers working toward a similar goal. We’re all in this together, and there’s something really beautiful in that.

    It’s terrible because, well, let us count the ways…

  • When Sarah Sanderson comes calling...I’ll follow.

    Here a few orange and black “nuggets” to impress your friends over the apple-bobbing bucket this Halloween. P.S. Beware “dog germs,” of course.

  • We all love monsters, but who among us has the tenacity to raise our own? You may think you don’t have enough room in your city dwelling to properly house a mythical grotesquerie, but there are some breeds of dragons, basilisks and night gaunts that can and do thrive in such a home. Here are four easy steps to lead on the path of raising a nightmarish hellbeast, right in your own living room!

  • Edward Estlin Cummings (ee to his friends) has been heralded as one of the most innovative poets of his time. He toyed with poetic form and noodled about with language to create a poetic style that stands as unique and compelling. What might he think of Twitter, which regularly shifts and twists language much the same way ol’ ee did? The results are surprisingly easy to imagine.

  • Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris are the authors of the upcoming choose-your-path romance novel My Lady's Choosing. These ladies are creative, smart, and incredibly funny. Read their Q&A below!

    Alright, writers. We’re in the thick of it. We’re approaching that halfway point and things might be starting to feel overwhelming. Maybe you’re not at the word count you should be by now, or maybe you are and you’re feeling the flames burn out. Whatever your needs, it’s likely about time for a pep talk.

    We searched out past NaNoWriMo Pep Talks and spoke with a couple authors to get their best advice for NaNoWriMo participants. Need a little inspiration and/or advice to keep going? We’ve got you.
