I am happy to announce that I was able to complete my nano novel in time. I validated at 50,060 words, around noon on November 30, 2014. Woo Hoo. It was a crazy month of finding time to write, but I persevered and was able to write almost every single day, with a few exceptions for the holiday. Slow and steady is me.
However, the book is not done. I still have about 10,000 – 15,000 more words to write before I get to the end of the first draft. It got exciting and action packed and took a few weird turns. Even after all that, at this moment I feel like I am writing a pretty good story. Oh, don’t get me wrong, it is a very rough draft, but it definitely has great potential. I will be working on it daily even though Nano is over for the year. I’m excited about it, ad want to finish it. I can’t wait for my readers to get it.
I would love to put out an excerpt, but I don’t know where the book will end and I don’t want to give anything away. What I can tell you is that it is a sequel to my previously published book, A Howl in the Night. I still don’t have a title for it. I am thinking along the lines of Dawn Breaks or The Morning Comes. I don’t know. It’s a work in progress. I’m sure I will figure something out.
Just a quick plug – I will be at the Orange Library in Lewis Center, this Sunday, December 7, 2014 from 2:00 – 5:00 to meet the people and talk about writing. I will also have books should you need one and I am always happy to autograph.
Have a great week.
