I finished writing my Christmas novella that's not due until May (it comes out in late September). And I meant to write the third book in my roadtrip romance series this Feb/Mar. But my muse evidently has other plans.
When I participated in Nanowrimo last November, several others participated, too, and we encouraged each other as we tried to get in our word counts. However, November is a hard month, and several fell short of where they wanted to be. So, someone suggested we try again in February.
You know I'm always up for a challenge. Or at least, always challenging myself. And since I'd been thinking of trying to write around then anyway, I jumped on board.
Now, more about what I'm hoping to write. I'm calling it Just Add Groom. It's going to be set the senior year of Hannah Malone's college career. What else is included? Sloan Miller, a barista at Hannah's favorite coffee shop on campus. Easton West, a handsome business major who needs help studying. Virginia Williams, Hannah's best friend and roomie. A chapel that's booked four years out for weddings. And a time crunch.
Sound good so far? I hope so. Because I'm hoping for at least 60,000 words next month. I'll update you soon!
And as for regular Nanowrimo this year? It's probably not going to happen for me with a novella collection releasing at the end of September and a novel releasing early December. And that's okay. My goal is to write this one now and another this summer (my third roadtrip romance book that keeps getting put off, of course). And we'll see how the rest of the year goes. It's still early. ;-)
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
