Still writing?

November is three-quarters over. Have you been writing every day? Remember, November is National Novel Writing Month. I’ve written on most days but admit that I didn’t do it every day. But my book is coming along and I’m happy with the progress. I look forward to writing daily in December, or at least as much as possible, to have a full completed draft by December 31st.

Holidays always bring up issues and a vast quantity of items to write about! I could easily write about my brother-in-law being bitten by my aunt’s dog at the Thanksgiving table, or my nephew’s hot body-building friend, or my son agreeing to allow me to put him on Match.com, or staying at my girlfriend’s mother’s house for two days, or the nasty cold or allergies or something I managed to get this week. Nearly everything is worthy of written commentary, so think about your week and write!

Keep writing!

November 5th and still writing

What a great weekend! The Palm Springs Writers Guild on Saturday and Palm Springs LGBT Pride yesterday. And I wrote each day even with the festivities. I’m driven to keep working on my WWII historical novel. The more I write, the more excited I get about it.

What are you working on during National Novel Writing Month? Whatever it is,

Keep writing!

November writing, Day 3

I hope you’re working on your book. On this third day of National Novel Writing Month, I completed the draft of chapter 3 and 4. I took a giant risk and sent these first drafts to my family for their input and feedback. Everyone, of course, is a critique so I have to be careful about selecting the workable feedback and lovingly put aside the rest.

I went to the Palm Springs Writers’ Guild meeting today and listened to Lisa Cron talk about how she crafts stories. I downloaded her book as she spoke. I highly recommend her work to you, and I certainly intend to use it myself.

Let me know what you’re writing…

Writing Day 1

Happy November and welcome to National Novel Writing month! I started on November 1st with an outlined first draft of my WWII book. (I wrote that draft during the summer in Sequim, WA) Today I completed the drafts of all of the front matter, the prologue, and chapter 1. My story takes place in WWII Europe form January through May 1945, and is based on the letters my father wrote to my mother during that time. My mother kept the letters which are in my possession. Such a treasure! And thank goodness both of my parents are alive, well, and with intact memories. Sweet!

What are you working on?

Keep writing!
