Ready or not, here it is. Sunday begins what is called National Novel Writing Month, or Nanowrimo for short. I've participated and won at least nine years (I missed a few the years my children were born, for some reason). I had a few years early on when I didn't quite make it 50,000, the goal of the month. But the last few years, I've surpassed 75,000 words. It's a huge accomplishment.
And, it must be working, because of those nine Nanowrimo stories, three have been published, and two more will be next year! Wow!
So, for this year, my goal is to write book two of my Roadtrip Romance series I started last year. I meant to write this one earlier this year, but got sidetracked with a book that will hopefully end up being part of a trilogy written with Heather Greer and Erin Howard. Until then, I'm back to my original plan.
The first book in the series is about three college friends who go on one last roadtrip together after graduation before Bree gets married. Well, this second one is Bree's story. And it's her honeymoon, although I don't think it's going to end up being anything like she expected. Working title of the story right now is Honeymoon Mayhem.
How does that sound? Do you love reading stories where things go so wrong that you have to wonder how they characters will ever come out with a relationship intact? That's my goal for this one. If you don't hear much from me in November, now you know why. ;-)
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.
