This year was different. I set out with a plan and a hope, and I finished my Nanowrimo story by the 21st--the earliest I've ever "Won" Nanowrimo. My personal goal was 60,000 words (normal Nanowrimo goals are 50,000, but I'm an overachiever), and I ended at 58,118. Not my personal best, but not the worst, either. Especially since I know my story will grow and evolve during edits over the next year or two.
So, what's next?
Well, this story I just wrote is the second in a series, so I still have to write the third, but I'm working on a proposal to submit for them now so that maybe we can see them published as early as 2022 (?). It's a hope and a prayer. That means early next year, I want to finish the third one, too.
But first, I need to write my Christmas novella that will be releasing in September 2021. It's to be included with four other stories, all set on a beach during the holidays. Mine will be on St. Simon's Island, Georgia, a place I love dearly--it's where we honeymooned. So, be looking for more on that soon.
AND, my March release, Writing Home, has been moved UP to January 19th. So, stayed tuned for more about that story, too. I'm so excited for you to meet Chris and Jordan and fall in love with them just like I did.
Have you accomplished some goals you set lately? Were you pleased with how they turned out or a little disappointed?
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.
