#NaNoWriMo Interview: Sarah Aisling

 Is this your first year doing NaNoWriMo?
 Yes, and I'm already wondering if I've lost my mind.

If yes, why did you decide this was the year?
 I have a vociferous inner editor who sometimes holds me back. I tend to edit everything to death, so I'm hoping to bypass her and open up the creative channels during NaNo. *crosses fingers*

 If yes, what is your greatest fear?
 That I'll freeze up and be unable to write anything.

 How much preparation do you plan to do before November 1st?
 I have a basic outline I'll be working from. Maybe I should be doing more, but that's what I've decided to go with.

 Got anything you'd like to tell us about this years project?
 I'll be writing the sequel to my first novel. I already know the characters and the setting, and I have a basic outline of the story.

Anything else you'd like to share?
 I'm grateful to Ruth Long for providing the wonderful Facebook NaNo group. There's a wonderful group of writers there, and I know it will be a great place to vent and collaborate in November!

Sarah Aisling hails from the East Coast of the US and loves living by the ocean with her incredibly indulgent husband and awesomely precocious daughter. She’s currently putting the finishing touches on her upcoming novel, The Weight of Roses.
When Sarah isn’t being enslaved by her characters, she can be found with her nose in a book, biking, hiking, camping, lusting after anything leopard, and spending time with friends and family.

  1. Lovely! I'm hoping to eradicate, or at least lock away, my inner editor for a bit!

  2. Donna, love that you're doing this series! Great idea. The Q and A blocks are so cute!!

    Sarah, here's to duct-taping your inner editor's mouth and freeing up the inky faucet!! We're here to cheer you on!! :)


  3. You're totally going to kick NaNoWriMo butt! And we'll be slogging away right beside you.,,

  4. For those that don't know, Sarah lives in New Jersey where Hurricane Sandy had tremendous impact. I'm hoping she can still manage to jump into NaNo.
