It's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! As I'm writing vigorously on my computer, there are so many others out there with no motivation. Thus, I have two words for you: PINTEREST and GIVEAWAY.
Genius, really. Pinterest is like your good old-fashioned Tumblr or Instagram. You can upload or "pin" photos onto boards to proclaim your favorite foods, clothes, books, and more! You can find tons of clever sayings or adorable photos to "repin" or re-post on your own board. Or if you wish, you may just simply browse and "like" photos.
I have my own account as well as some fellow authors that I follow. Below are their links and mine, where not only can you get some inspiration, but you can connect visuals to my book Emerald Butterfly and many other great books out there:

The giveaway details will be out soon, most likely by the end of the month on how to enter the Pinterest Giveaway.
Also more news on Emerald Butterfly. The novel is awaiting acceptance from two literary agents and a publisher from previous meetings at the Writer's Digest Conference. If any of you are debating if the conference is worth investing your time and money in, I would say, "YES" and highly suggest attending. It's the opportunity of a lifetime and a great way to learn many things about the industry from the experts themselves.
Stay creative & keep writing!
