About Me

My photo
Alison and I aka “Warren & B” have been friends for over 16 years. It was a friendship like no other. It was one filled with trust, respect and love. No matter what we had each other’s back and supported one another. In March of 2012 my best B passed away suddenly and my whole world changed. My best friend, my support system, my life was gone just like that. For those who know me, you know that writing is my passion. My ultimate dream is to be a publish Author. B was one of my biggest supporters; she was always pushing me to write that book, I never did. But I will now in honor of her. RIP Alison aka B…this is all for you girlfriend!

NaNoWriMo has begun

Well it’s day 6 of NaNoWriMo and I must admit I am really far behind in my word count. Last year this time I was almost at 10,000 words, but you know how it is everyday life and some unexpected circumstances has forced me to delay jumping on the band wagon as quickly as I would have liked, but I’m happy to say I’ve officially started and I’m making good head way.

One of the things that has made my writing go smoothly this year (even though I'm behind on my word count) was the help of creating a outline beforehand. Over the years when participating in NaNoWriMo I'm usually the kind of person that likes to free style write and go where the story takes me, but sometimes I go off in a totally different direction and I lose interest and push it aside. Not this time, this time I played it a little smarter. I used a writing tool called Storybook- it's free  and it helps you structure your novel. It stores information about your characters, scenes, locations, plots and so much more. It's like a big flow chart right at your fingertips. It's something that I found to be a great asset to helping me see where I want this story to go. It's a tool I would recommend to anyone...did I mention it's free!

This weekend has been dedicated to hitting at least 3000 words. It’s a big goal, but I’m determined to make it happen. I started the prologue of my novel “Unspoken Secrets” and it’s coming along very well. My heroine Courtney Jamieson is preparing for the biggest day of her life, her wedding day only she not as enthusiastic as she should be, but her groom can’t wait to finally make her his wife. Why you ask? Well that’s something you’ll have to wait and find out!
