Need some inspiration? There’s lots and lots on Pinter estate and other sites. Nichos are lots of fun to paint and decorate!
These are paper and we have four different traditional metal styles to choose from. But the colour schemes are bright and inspirational when we paint and decorate our very own wall shrines or altars.
Such a colourful folk art and so much fun to create your own personalized nicho, just in time for Dia de Muertos!
Today in our Shut Up & Write group, I read the first chapter of my NaNoWriMo novel called, ‘ No Fixed Address.’ I got some positive feedback and some good suggestions for making it better, more tense, more engaging for the reader.
Gracias, fellow writers!
NaNoWriMo has been going on for many, many years and I personally have been involved for 3 attempts at writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days, the last attempt successful. After submitting what was loosely called a ‘ novel’ I was declared a Winner and I downloaded my finisher certificate.
I really hadn’t thought about this effort of five years ago yntil I established a weekly Shut Uo & Write writers group at a local cafe, Cafe Montana in San Antonio, Jalisco on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 p.m. It seemed like a natural combination.
This cafe has great drinks and food and the background music is non- intrusive. The time slot at this particular restaurante is not super busy either. A background coffee shop hum works well for many writers, myself included. The grounds are beautiful here and the all important electrical outlets are available. Next week I’ll bring my new laptop and a shareable power bar.
We would like to encourage any local writers ( or wanna be writers) to register for free on the http://www.nanowrimo.org site with a user name, a password and a working title and synopsis of their proposed novel.
That’s the first step, and yes thete always is one. Take that first step or just join us on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 for two or three 25 minute tumed writing sessions.
No prompts or critiques. Just writing, pur and simple.
Yes, I realize that I just got back from 70 days on the road but…this ramblingrrl is never fully unpacked.
Destination: Hollyhock Retreat Centre on Cortes Island in the summer of 2019, si dios quieren, as they say here in Mexico.
