Nanowrimo Spotlight: Jennifer Weiner


Happy day, everybody! Yesterday was a little too hectic to squeeze in an interview, but today I’m back with Jennifer! You can find Jennifer on Nanowrimo as jinrightjm, on facebook, goodreads, her own site, and also read this Smashwords interview! Here’s a bit about Jennifer’s Nano history:


I did my first nanowrimo in 2013 and won that year, but had to include all my creative writing not just on my novel concept. It’s looking like I’ll have to do the same this year since my original idea got tossed when my mini-me decided she wanted to star in a fantasy story lol I’m still doing world building for that idea!

I can’t remember how I found nanowrimo, but it was likely a Google search for writing groups or support or something similar. Or something I read in a group or book on writing.

What are you writing about this year?
This year  I am rebelling by writing short stories with a supernatural or fantasy flair. One is even loosely based off my husband and I!

What is your favorite movie – you have to pick just one!
That is so unfair! LOL If I MUST pick just one then I have to go with Memento. It’s an amazing, you can’t see the ending coming, totally screws with your mind the entire time, movie!

What advice would you give to all your fellow Wrimos?
You can’t lose Wrimo! If you get a character sheet template, or 500 words or some new friends you can talk about writing with or even just a touch of confidence by letting others see your work in progress… those are BIG wins. Especially if you’ve never written a long work before. Don’t worry about the word count, just HAVE FUN!

Sneaky Ninja question! If you could change one thing from the history of your life, what would it be?
I’d start writing sooner. I always told myself I had no talent. And maybe I don’t–only time will tell. However, I enjoy the process so far. And I can talk to the weirdos hanging out in my cranium without getting carted off to the metal health ward.
