NaNoWriMo Spotlight: Dominique Goodall

Today I'd like to introduce you to a writer who is a good friend of mine: Dominique Goodall!

Dominique has participated and won NaNoWriMo since 2011, including Camp NaNoWriMo sessions in 2012 and 2013! She writes to be published, not just to get words down. She says "it's a good way for me to get disciplined and work to a schedule." Dominique found out about NaNo from her friend Jen, who I will be introducing below! Good old Jen nagged and nagged until Dominique agreed to come along for the ride. Way to go Jen! 

For this year's NaNoWriMo Dominique is working on the second book in a series, "so it's something that's got a backstory, but will let me grow as a writer still." When asked for NaNo advice she says "Make sure you build up writing when you can - go over the minimum when you can. If you miss a day, you don't need to worry then." Great advice!

Dominique is from the UK and is 24 years old. She is "absolutely, entirely, completely OBSESSED with wolves. Not just interested in them...OBSESSED." From studying her favorite author she has learned that "it's not always about finishing a manuscript. It's about learning your process while you do it."
