Camp NaNoWriMo

Doing Well on the Writing Wave

Lately I have been doing well with writing and outline my next book, but not so good with keeping up with my posts for my blog.

I have about 50,000 words on my story Facade but it’s not finished yet, I have the rest of the story outlined and Camp NaNo is coming up in just a few days so I hope to finish the story then. I have no idea how long it will be but I’m curious to find out.

The main character is Wesley who is based off of Elvis Presley. His brother Keith is the older brother who in Elvis’ live did not survive. But the twin brother did survive in my story. Wesley could sing and Keith could not so there was a lot of jealousy in the book. Even though Keith discovered his drawing ability it was not enough for him and he’s so enraged he almost kills his brother. And that is about as far as I’m letting on. lol I don’t want to reveal too much.

That book is called Facade and my next book is called The Forgiving which is turning out to be a Christian fiction book so far. I hadn’t much in my story until I used Rory’s story cubes the original box and the actions box. I now have other ideas and actions to work with.

And I think you may have all heard about James Patterson’s Masterclass well I took that and I have been inspired to change some of my ways. Like go commercial publishing instead of self publishing. So once I have Facade written and edited a couple of times, I’m going to seek a literary agent. Yeah sure I may get rejected several times like 30 or so, but that’s okay. Because other writers have done it before me and made it. I believe I can do it too.

So Camp NaNo here I come and here’s hoping to finish my first fictional story!

NaNo Day 30 – I won!!!

Yep! I did it!!!! Man, I tell you I am sooo tired. I am seeing double trying to write this post right now. Exhaustion is taking hold.  I wrote over 50,000 words, but my story is not done yet! Good luck to everyone still trying to make that goal and CONGRATS to everyone who has made it!

November has been a challenging run by far and I admit, there were many times I wanted to give up because I doubted. Doubt and fear can ruin a lot. I must learn to never doubt again!

I’m heading off to bed!

Good night all!

NaNo Day 16 – Gimping Along

Number 16

I must admit. Tonight is starting off quite slowly…er…well really I haven’t started at all. It has been a long day.

Was up at 7 and then while eating breakfast there was a loud BANG! on my front window. I look up and see this plume of feathers everywhere. A bird flew into the window, but I knew it had to be a bit one for the sound of the impact. Surprised my window was cracked!

I went outside and looked around and didn’t see the bird at first. When I turned to go back inside there he was. Laying on the ground was a partridge, breathing, but clearly out of sorts and confused at what happened. So I go back inside and call the Maine Game Wardens to figure out what I should do. I was told to wait an hour to see if the bird came back around and if he/she did, and did not injure anything, it would fly off on it’s own. So I wanted and checked on the bird about an hour later and as soon as it saw me, it flew off. Good ending there!

Shortly after that it was off to the vet for two dogs. One was up to date on shots, the other needed everything. Got that done and then picked up a friend from church and brought her home to spend the day with us. We enjoyed good food and watched Garfield: The Movie which we all loved! I can never get enough of Garfield! lol.

It wasn’t until about 7:30 or so when we got back home after taking our friend back to her place. It is after 9PM Eastern.

Listening to Pandora and Elvis is singing “Suspicious Minds”. Perfect time period music for my story.

Hmm Well, I guess I should go and get writing.

I just want to say, “Thank you. Thank you very much.” for reading along! 🙂
