Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

With three days to spare, I completed the first draft of my novel “Come and Take It” with 50,901 words (although the official count on the NaNoWriMo site says 50,983).  I have officially “won” my first NaNoWriMo challenge. I have learned: That I’m really more of a pantser than I would ever have thought – I just wrote and wrote and wrote and figured out the characters and the plot as I went along It’s OK to tell your husband you are writing a romance novel.  He may laugh a bit, but eventually his support will shine through. it’s OK to write a few words one day and a slew the next.  The key is to write consistently every day. 50,000 words isn’t all that many when you get to the end – even if it seems like an unobtainable goal in the beginning   I’m so happy I have […]

NaNoWriMo 2015 – Progress, Day 23

It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to update, but I have been writing.  I did really well today, getting a little ahead of my daily word count, since Thanksgiving is coming up this Thursday.  And as a good Pilgrim (see the humor?) I may not get a whole lot of time to write on Friday. What am I thankful for this week?  I’m thankful for many things, but mainly I’m thankful I got over my fear and just started writing.  NaNoWriMo is all about getting over the fear of writing a full length novel.  It seems overwhelming, but it can be done.  All you have to do is write 1,667 words each day, and you can have a 50,000 word manuscript done in a month? Will it be ready to publish?  Yeah, no.  But it will be done!  Here’s to pushing hard this week and getting across […]

Start Your Own PLR Writing Business – Training Preview

Here’s something I’ve been waiting for a long time, but it’s time sensitive, so make sure you read through and take action. If you love writing, publishing content or just finding new lucrative markets to tap into, this is for you. One of my favorite PLR sellers, Alice Seba, is opening up some limited, but intensive PLR training with partner, Ron Douglas. By the way, if you don’t know what PLR is, it stands for “private label rights”. What you do is create content that online business owners can then edit, brand, monetize and publish as their own. It’s a concept similar to ghostwriting, but much more lucrative because you don’t have to get bogged down with client demands and you can sell the content to many customers. Alice has been in the PLR business full-time since 2006 and has one of the best reputations and connections out there. Ron […]

NaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 16 progress

I seem to have lost a couple of days of posting.  With my husband out of town, I’ve been a single parent for the past few days.  A very BUSY single parent.  I’ve kept up with my writing, but not with posting my progress. Today I want to talk about how fun this experience has been so far.  Even though I’m hitting the sagging middle, I’ve kept at it, making my daily writing goal more days than not.  I’m over halfway through my book, and on track to finish it by November 30. For the longest time I’ve only dreamed of writing a novel.  Now I’m doing it.  Taking action on this has been one of the most liberating experiences of my life.  I’m able to identify my strengths and weaknesses in my writing, so I can take the appropriate action before the next one I write.  Just knowing that […]

How to Avoid Freelance Scams

As I’ve been plugging along with my NaNoWriMo novel, I’ve started remembering how much I love to write. Decades ago (last century in fact!) I was a journalism major at Brigham Young University. I had been the co-editor of my high school newspaper, and had placed fifth in Southern California for an essay contest. I imagined myself writing for the rest of my life. Well, things changed, and I ended up going down a different path into the computer realm. But now I’m starting to get back into my writing, both fiction and non-fiction, and looking at whether I could learn to make a living writing from home. Like me, there are many people who dream of making a living from home by writing. Some need the flexibility and just want to get out of the 9 to 5 grind. Others have health or other challenges that prevent them from […]

NaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 13 Progress

Tired!  So very tired today!  It was Saturday, and the kids wanted to go on a “field trip”.  So we went up to Ponder, TX to a park that’s up there, and the kids played for an hour.  Then we hit WalMart to get my oldest son some Legos, my daughter a Nerf Gun, and my youngest son a pink car (his choice!).  Then back to the house to try and do some cleaning and webinar training. It’s nearly 8pm and I’m beat.  But I did manage to get my word count in for the day.  I’m up to nearly 25,000 words (I thought about pushing on and writing another 300 words, but I decided to save that for tomorrow, to cross the 50% mark).  The story is hitting its stride, but I’m fighting the urge to edit, drop foreshadowing, etc. in and start trimming the fat from the story.

NaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 12 Progress

Today was the first day I’ve had off in a long time.  I spent several hours thinking through my story, coming up with new plot points and plot twists.  I also spent some time revising, meaning I cut nearly 1700 words from the story, to be replaced with a different type of accident (car crash instead of a bike accident).  So my total word count isn’t up all that much from yesterday, but I feel a lot better about where I’m at in the story. I have a clear conflict (several in fact): Gavin and Amy are attracted to each other, but an event in her past keeps her from a more physical relationship Gavin’s mother dislikes Amy on site, and hires a PI to investigate her background, to dig up dirt on her Amy has a secret which will continue to put her in conflict with Gavin The police […]

NaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 11 Progress

I seem to have gotten my second wind, so to speak.  I have more scenes roiling around in my head, and have gone back and tightened up a few of the scenes I have already written.  I know we aren’t supposed to edit as we go, but I feel good about the small edits I’ve made so far. The bad news is that my “bike crash” scene is going to have to be rewritten as a car crash scene.  I think it’s more believable for the story but will involve cutting and rewriting a few thousand words.  I guess it’s a good thing I have some time off over the next week. I’m on track with my word count, and feeling more confident about my characters.  Now I just need to push through another few weeks and I’ll finish.  Yeah! Word count today stands at 20,229.
