I am back from a long hiatus. It is November and writers out there are participating in NaNoWriMo. Don’t know what NaNoWriMo is? Well let me clue you in.
It is the National Novel Writing Month where writers are challenged to write a draft novel in 30 days. That’s right and did I tell you it must be at least 50,000 words to win.
You don’t win anything big like a car, but you get a badge that you completed your draft novel. I participated last year and squeaked by just under the wire. Of course I never finished the novel and it is filed in a folder somewhere in cyber space.
Anyways, I am bound and determined to get this one published. I won’t tell you what it is about, no spoilers here. It is day 25 and I am just about up to 41,000 words which means I have to come up with 9,000 more. Yes folks, I have to write 1800 words each day for the next 5 days.
50,000 words is not a novel, more like a novella, but it is a start. I am shooting for 70,000 words when it is completed.
I decided I will give you one clue, the title of the book is “In the Garden at Midnight” I know what you are thinking the story is about, but hey, a woman has to get published.
So look for me next year at Barnes and Noble, I am crossing all my paws.
PS These words don’t count towards my NaNoWriMo word count. 😦
