NaNoWriMo Day 2: How It Went

I woke up at my usual time around 6 am.

Instead of going to the gym, I went straight for coffee and my laptop.

I started up a virtual write-in for one writer’s group while doing word sprints in another writer’s group thread.



I wrote 2, 656 words today for a grand total of 5, 072 words toward my NaNo goal!



I’ve made more NaNoWriMo Buddies from Twitter and Facebook writing groups during breaks. If you’d like to buddy me on the NaNo site, here’s my handle: Crimson Dragon.

I’m going for a walk, because this year, I’m not going to forget self-care.

Tammy loves to build worlds with words, exploring themes the effect of diaspora on the generations born elsewhere than their ancestors with the backdrop of tech or magic and dragons (sometimes both). These stories are inspired by her own family's immigrant experience. She's queer and many of her characters fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum (though that is not the focus of her work). She's married to an engineer who dances. Together they are raising three precocious teens in the Seattle suburbs. Two of her children are neurodiverse. Her experiences have taught her much about the world, its beauties and its injustices. All of this comes through in her fiction with a healthy dose of absurd humor.
