My first week of National Novel Writing Month is slamming to a halt and it’s becoming painfully clear just how daunting this task is going to be. My goal for the month (as determined by the gurus at nanowrimo.org) is a minimum of 50,000 words. I’ve finished a mere 1,500 of those. Yikes.
I will say, however, that it feels good to finally commit this story to paper. It’s been buzzing around in my head for months, particularly the first few chapters. My intent is to make this the first in a series of at least three books, perhaps four. It will be my first attempt at a series and I will admit to being just a bit intimidated by the process. It’s not the amount of writing that I find challenging, nor even the plot itself. It’s keeping it all straight that’s the trick. Questions like: How old is this character at this point in the story? Is it realistic for him still to do what I have him doing? Remember that dog he adopted back in book 1, whatever happened to it? Stay tuned to find out…
With 48,500 words yet to go, I really must run! Please check out the second chapter from The Aldana Incident and the new pics that I’ve added to my photography page.
As always, thanks for visiting my site!
