Birth of a Novel Blog Chain

As of December 1st, this is now a Monday posting. If you want to join, let us know and we will add you to the side-bar. 
The Birth of a Novel Blog Chain

Elizabeth Poole wrote a thought provoking post last week. Actually, why don't you pause and go read it HERE.

We ended up in an email conversation and the Birth of a Novel Blog Chain idea was born.

Every Tuesday in November, members will post a progress report and maybe a teaser from their Nano novel. Then they can visit other participants and encourage them to keep working toward their November goals.

This was designed with Nano in mind, but you don’t have to play Nano to participate. Everyone is welcome to grab a button and join the blog chain. (The buttons don't link anywhere, they just say, "Hey, I'm part of this Blog Chain.")

If you are interested email me at or Elizabeth at to get your name on the list. We will email you a list of the links in the chain to include at the bottom of each Birth of a Novel post. We will also keep a list in the sidebar on our blogs.

On Tuesday, November 1st, post your first Birth of a Novel post. Tell us your personal goals for November. Feel free to post a blurb introducing your story idea, or keep it all a secret. Then report on your progress each Tuesday in November.
