Are you writing a novel in November? I haven’t participated in National Novel Writing Month in quite some time. I tried it one year, and realized that I had a lot of the same feelings as Maggie Stiefvater. I felt rushed for word count and didn’t feel I achieved the quality of my earlier writing if I had been going at my own pace.
But, my writing has gotten away from me in my goal to work full time and go to college, so I think an event like #NaNoWriMo is just the inspiration I need to write a much needed follow up to Paper Souls (or a story about a girl who falls in love with someone new every day, I haven’t decided which yet).
We have a lot of amazing writers here at the OCH Literary Society, so I hope to see you there. Look for me @ Allie Burke! I look forward to cheering you all on.
A Bestselling Author and Mental Health Advocate from Burbank, California, Allie Burke writes books she can’t find in the bookstore. Having been recognized as writing a “kickass book that defies the genre it’s in”, Allie writes with a prose that has been labeled poetic and ethereal.
Her life is a beautiful disaster, flowered with the harrowing existence of inherited eccentricity, a murderous family history, a faithful literature addiction, and the intricate darkness of true love. These are the enchanting experiences that inspire Allie’s fairytales.
From some coffee shop in Los Angeles, she is working on her next novel.
