November plans

Some of you may know, November is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word  novel from November 1 to 30. That means 2,500 words or so a day.

Whether it’s a good idea or not, I have signed up and plan to forge ahead. For the month of November, I may have to teach the husband to do laundry!

Yes, I still have edits to do on In Dawn’s Shadows, and I have the second book to prep for my critique group. But hey, why not add one more thing?

I want to have another project to pitch at next year’s writer’s conferences, and I have this World War Two era novel burning inside me. Sometimes, it is good to step away and work on other projects.

So, starting in November, I will blog about the highs and lows, and how I balance all this craziness. (Or fail to!)

I’m determined to push through. Luckily, I have the plot mapped out.

At, you can watch my daily word count and progress, but I will post my progress here as well. Blog posts might be a bit more sporadic but I promise to get some book reviews and some other articles in here to spice it up!

So…as of Sunday…here goes nothing! 🙂
