National Novel Writing Month

This month I decided to give NaNoWriMo a shot. I'm a first timer and got hooked into a crazy story called The Dance of Women, involving pirates and gypsies and a case of revenge. The goal of NaNo, for those who don't know, is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I completed my 50,000 as of November 18th and am still going. A little slower for the moment, this week has been busy so far, but I do plan to finish my novel and tuck it aside to edit later.

What else am I up to? Editing The Bookstore Lady for my agent and working on a karate manual for work.

HWG Author Day on Nov 17 was a lot of fun. We had local media and many friends in attendance. I enjoyed getting to read Chapter 2 of Murder on Manitou to the crowd and answer many questions. One of which was whether I planned to write a collection of short stories. YES, I've been working on one for ages, but have to spend some time pulling it all together and arranging for it to be printed. I'll let you know when it becomes available.

Once my edits are done, the manual is for sale at the dojo and NaNo is done for the year, it will be time for Christmas. And, of course, Christmas cookies, popcorn and stories!

But for now, I'll write on!
