Good morning everyone, Amy the intern back again.

Last week was particularly quiet on the forums, but never fear, I kept writing on into the night with my faithful hound and a cup of tea for company.

I was inspired by the words of American author E.L. Doctorow:

‘Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.’

Tonight’s Race: Charlotte Nash!

I am hoping you will all join me tonight though because our special guest is Charlotte Nash!

Charlotte Nash is a Brisbane-based author, editor, researcher, and university lecturer. Her first book ‘Ryder’s Ridge’, a rural medical romance, is released by Hachette – very, very soon! Charlotte writes from experience with degrees in mechanical engineering and medicine. This lead to a series of very interesting jobs where the highlights included building rockets, traversing the Pilbara mines and learning medicine on an army base.

Come and join Charlotte and me tonight for an awesome feature author race.

A quick refresher:

The AWMonline Writing Races are a self-directed, one-hour long writing session that takes place in the company of other writers as part of an online forum.  If you’ve never done a writing race before, you can download the Writing Race Guidelines2011

We will gather at about 7:50pm (Queensland Time; 9pm for those of you enjoying daylight savings time down south, and 6pm for our Western Australian writers) and share our writing goals for the evening, then start the clock at 8:00pm and keep working until 9:00pm. Inspiration, perspiration, and fun guaranteed!

Inspirational quotes will be provided as refreshment at half-time.

At the end of the hour feel free to share how you progressed over the evening and encourage your fellow writers in their pursuit of the craft.
