It’s National Novel Writing Month and Trevor and Bea are writing a novel. We’re sharing tips, challenging conventional wisdom, and documenting our progress on what we think is a very exciting project. What have we learned from a string of NaNo wins? What challenges and successes are we facing along the way? Join us as we write Persephone’s Champion, a middle-grade fantasy adventure full of mythological creatures, fiendish plots, and an unconventional cast of characters learning a little bit more about themselves.

Lessons from a Babe in Quarantine

The day after my office sent us all home due to the pandemic, our baby was born. About twelve hours after I finished packing up my desk, we were on the phone with triage at the hospital.

2019 Maker Report Card

One year ago, I made a video called Maker Resolutions for 2019, which said this: I’ve come up with 10 maker resolutions for 2019 that I think will help me be more productive, do more of the things I like, get away from some of the stuff that hasn’t been working for me, and generally make me less crazy about my various projects and makes.

I’m a NaNoWriMo 2019 winner! What did I learn?

Last year, I had a fairly stale, flat, uninspiring NaNoWriMo flop. And despite the fact that I think talking about failure in the context of creative endeavours is dumb and bad, falling so far short of my planned word count stung. But this year, I rocked it.
