I have been hard at work trying to finish my first draft so that I am able to completely focus all my energy on finishing NaNoWriMo this November. I am very close to making my goal. Unfortunately, I will not have any teasers that are from the new writing as it may give too much away and it is all hand written in a notebook rather than on my computer.
I have not done a Teaser in such a long time. I hadn't written anything new in such a long time, but now that I have some progress in my WIP, I decided to share some of my new writing. This is an unedited first draft piece from Chapter 11.
I have finished two more chapters of my current work in progress, Serenity. I have an ultimate goal now set for this novel. I am aiming to finish the first draft by October 1. I want to participate in NaNoWriMo and actually stand some kind of a chance. Writing this story and attempting to write another story simultaniously did not work out too well for me at all. My head was too wrapped up in my first story. This year, my first story will be complete. Come October, I will begin looking at the fifty other ideas I have floating around, do some character profiles, some plotting, some outlining, and I should be able to choose one of my new ideas for November.
Cross your fingers for me that I may be able to accomplish this goal. Hopefully, the writing spike will equal a blog post spike.
Let me know what you think of my new blog look. I fought with Blogger for 2 hours last night trying to get it just right. Still not perfect for my tastes, but close enough.
