IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! (I'm singing by the way) and no it's not back to school, or Christmas...although that's just around the corner. It's the National Novel Writing Month aka "NaNoWriMo"
This is what I consider my most wonderful time of the year! Why? Because I get to attempt to write a novel in 30 day.
Have I done this before? Yes I have. I've been doing it for 5 years finished twice!
Have I done anything with the story I've completed? Not a damn thing, but you know what I'm okay with that. The story was good, but not great. Now I'm more focused and I believe that I have a great story in mind and it's ready to come out.
The story? Unspoken Secrets...ya that's the one...the story I should have done last year, but unfortunately never got the chance to do. I put it away for a year and focused on my writing course that I've been taken, working on my short story assignments....I have an assignment that is due this Sunday and I'm almost finished. I'll be getting that out of the way and dedicating myself to this story, which will be filled with suspense, romance, and betrayal.
I have my characters....Courtney & Noah. They are finally going to come to life and I can't wait to introduce you all to them. I'm going to be honest with everyone I didn't do a full outline, I mean hell, I tried, I really did, but I wasn't feeling it. I'm all about winging it! I know, I know...it's a risk, but that's what this challenge is all about taking risks and as of November 1st I'm going to put it all down on paper and let the magic flow.
Is that smart? Hell if I know, but I'm doing it anyways, damit! Never forget when it's all over I could go back rewrite and polish my baby up to get it ready for the world.
Throughout this month I can almost guarantee that there will be highs and lows and I'm pretty sure you're gonna hear all about it, but at the end of the day when I reach my goal of 50,000 words...and I WILL. It will be all worth it!
Just 4 more days and counting...Man I can't wait!!!
- Warren & B 4 Life
- 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!
