10/31/14: It Was a Dark and Stormy Night…(No, Really)

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 9.57.29 PM

 

I never thought I would work so hard in my life.  It was long days, trying to convince everyone that this was the right path to take.  I know it is going to be hard, I know it is going to be painful.  I worry for my life, for the life of my little brother as I watch him sleep beside me.  We both know what the outcome of this fight could be, but in the end, we remind ourselves what the cost will be if we cower into the shadows as they wish.  I wonder what the future holds for us when we cannot stand together like brothers in arms? 

(Excerpt from my novel this year)

Is everyone ready? Good luck and happy writing!!

Three Lads in a Stable—10 More Days

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 5.21.58 PM

 

Three lads sit in a stable and wait
One already knows his fate
the others still must sit and wait
 
And wait, must we, ten days still
to write our stories—gee, what a thrill!

25 Days and Counting!

HorsemanBroderick59.maggieroseblog

Is anyone out there as excited as I am for NANOWRIMO to start? Well, if you are writing up ideas, re-writing up better ones, playing out scenes in your head as you’re trying to sleep, spending all your spare time writing down more ideas—alright I almost have my whole book written down—HUH!—then yeah, you’re about as excited…

I cannot help it—it just excites me! The thought of all that writing, who knows how many people across the world spending November writing down their own personal stories.  But when I am through thinking of all that part, I think of my own story.

Last year was my first year participating.  I reached my word-count goal, which was about 40,000—(I even went over it a bit).  Anyway, just for fun, I tested out theWord-Count Goal Calculator to see what it said my word count could be…it said 171,360… Not really what I had in mind, but whatever.  (Not that I wouldn’t love to write a novel with 171,360 words, but I just don’t see it working out very well.)

So anyway, if you are a novel-writing lover like myself, feel free to leave comments on your experiences! Do any of you know yet what your novel shall be about, or do to just wing it when November 1st hits?
