In this nook of the website I've compiled exercises, tips, and tricks for you to use in your pursuit of constructing your novel worlds and peoples.
I know how tough it is to get your muse to cooperate and to bring things to life in your head--much less on the page.
I've been a municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo for going on 6 years, and I've been coaching worldbuilding, noveling, and character creation for 7. I've been writing professionally since 2006, and for fun since...well. Kindergarten. 🙂 Along my own writing journey I've written exercises to push my muse and help me visualize what populates my worlds: plants, animals, environments, people.
Come on in--I'm looking forward to sharing them with you!

NaNoWriMo Writer's Toolbox:
COMING SOON: I'm a big fan of trying EVERYTHING and seeing what works, whether to help me learn, plan, organize, or create. As this series goes live I'll be linking it here for a one-stop shop to help you build your own Arsenal of Writing Success (TM)! 🙂
