Claire McEwen lives by the ocean in Northern California with her family and a scruffy, mischievous terrier. When not dreaming up new stories, she can be found digging in her garden with a lot of enthusiasm but, unfortunately, no green thumb. She loves discovering flea-market treasures, walking on the beach, dancing, traveling and reading, of course!

Or, if I'm really stuck, I may go back and do a writing exercise involving the character, asking him or her questions or writing a letter from them to me. If I'm stuck on plot, I often Google the issues in the book for inspiration. I write about ranchers, so I'll look up articles on ranching in a particular part of the country and often it will spark an idea.(less)

National Novel Writing Month and Me

Are you familiar with National Novel Writing Month? It’s a chance to push yourself to write 50,000 words of your novel in one month. It takes place every November, which makes absolutely no sense. November is a busy month. And it only has 30 days! 





But I think the fact that NaNoWriMo (as those of us in the know call it) is set in November, a totally inconvenient month, is exactly the point. There is neve...days!

“If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.”
Nora Roberts

Anne Lamott
“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Nora Roberts
“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”
Nora Roberts

Anne Lamott
“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
Anne Lamott
