YOU read that title correctly! Day One of Nanowrimo and I've got 1,814 words this morning before 9 a.m. I am feeling so proud of myself, so good, so clean, so pure.
Nonny nonny boo boo! But I'd better shut up because one day soon you will hear/read me whining that I've had so much to do I haven't written Word One.
It comes, it goes; it waxes, it wanes. But, still, it's begun, and that's the important part.
The working title is "Not So's You'd Notice." The heroine is "Nellie." She is in Klamath Falls right now. She had to leave a job in Portland, Ore., and return home to help her mother care for her grandmother. It's 1920, her father is an invalid due to a logging accident, and Nellie will soon be working in logging camps feeding the hungry workers.
This just has "bestseller" written all over it. Well, it will, as soon as I put in the ghost whispering and mob whacking. (Just kidding.) Did you hear the sing-song voice I used to say "just kidding"?
So bring on the coffee, the late nights, typing in my car on the laptop during work lunch breaks - I'm ready for it.
