National Novel Writing Month begins today, but I actually started last night at midnight since I couldn’t rest my brain about it. Of the 50,000 words I must write in one month, I’ve written 3,638. I only stopped because it was 2 a.m. The story flowed like liquid from my fingertips. For the first time in my entire life – and this is true, if you know me – I feel confident.
For my novel writing class this week I compiled a graphic of my favorite advice from Chris Baty, creator of NaNoWriMo and author of No Plot? No Problem! It will serve as the fuel in my tank to keep moving forward.
Halloween was fantastic since the rain held off. We trick-or-treated with friends and hung out afterward. I promised you a photo, so here we go: Iron Man, a zombie, Walter White and one of his Blue Sky customers. Of course, you’d have to know Breaking Bad to fully appreciate our costumes.
So off I go to write like mad. The story is ready to come out. If I’m absent online it means I’m present in Jesup, Georgia, which is the primary setting of the novel. Thanks to all of you who’ve been so encouraging in this journey.
