New Year New Novel

I’ve been working on The Beginning for awhile, and I’ve decided I’m not quite ready for it yet. I’m not at the right place in my life to write the caliber of story that The Beginning deserves. So, I will put it aside for awhile and eventually come back.

Tonight, I’m going to continue work on a new novel that I’m calling “Ordinary” for the time being. It’s not a love story. I don’t write those. It is, however, a story about love.

Stay tuned for details and teasers, darlings.



NaNoWriMo 2014?

In the world of being a writer, there are many opportunities to join communities with other writers. Perhaps the biggest is NaNoWriMo.

If you’re unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, you can click here┬áto go to the website and learn more. Basically, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and writers from all over the country┬ácommit to the goal of writing a novel of 50,000 words during the month of November. There are a few rules and stipulations, such as not writing anything before November 1st, but I’ll let you explore those on the website.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about NaNoWriMo and if I should participate this year. I really want to, and I have an idea, I’ve just never completed one, and I always feel like a failure.

Now that I’ve said that, though, I’m starting to think that I can’t ever let that stop me and I’ll probably write anyway.

Are you participating? Excited about your idea and want to share it? Are you a NaNoWriMo veteran or newbie? Comment and let’s discuss!
