Preptober day 1, 2021


HI, I’M EVALENA, and I write non-fictional books, blogs and articles on a range of topics from arts and crafts to teaching and writing.

Last year, my alter ego Lïnnéa stepped out of the box I normally keep her in, and began to dust off the work I tend to keep hidden. She’s made herself busy since then, reworking old lyrics, poems and stories. And writing some new ones.

It’s scary stuff to share a part of yourself that feels personal, and I guess that’s why I have to do it. You see, I have this never-ending desire to jump off cliffs just to see if I can… 😉

One such thing, for me, was NaNoWriMo. For years, I promised myself I’d do it, but something always came in between. I put it down to pretty much anything other than the real reason why I wasn’t doing it: The fact I was too scared to let anyone read my fictional texts.

Yep, I had to jump off the cliff. And here we are…

I’m going to do my best to post some #preptober posts and tell you why I would like to see you join me for this year’s NaNoWriMo.

– Have you ever participated in NaNoWriMo?

– How did you feel about it?

Let’s talk! Hop on the Preptober bandwagon, and please share the links to your posts using today’s prompt in the comments below.

All the best,

//Evalena 😘
