Short Update!

Nanowrimo is in full swing! That is, National Novel Writing Month. It's that time of year when every serious novelist (and amateurs too) sit down and crank out fifty-thousand words of a novel! Hopefully, that's about the length of the novel, but it's a decent start if nothing else.

This is my first Nanowrimo, folks, and it has been thrilling! Well, more like draining. And fantastic. I'm at 14,259 words so far, below par because I burned out yesterday. But I'm not giving up! Actually, I've already succeeded beyond my wildest imaginations! As a working college student, I didn't think I'd get this far at all.

But here I am! With half an outline, the start of an amazing map, and 14,259 words of my second novel, folks! And boy is it a dozy. And you know why? God gave it to me. I love the stories he grants me. ^__^ They're always so amazing!

This one is about a city; about the people there. The little boy, the stranger, the young woman, the police chief, the mayor and his wife, the reporter, the doctor, and the inn keeper. It's a story about a night-time in all their lives, and it's so exciting to be the writer of it!

And that's all I'm gonna say for now. See ya all next time! =D


  1. I'm glad that Nanowrimo isn't burning you out completely. I think it's really amazing that you do everything that you do, and I love your stories, I can't wait to read more of this one.

  2. I'm already sold. It sounds really fascinating the way you describe it. And because of the enjoyment I've gotten from your other story, I know I'll love this one too.
    Hang in there with Nanowrimo. You're doing a fabulous job!

  3. I have one question; because I am clueless, did you count every word of the novel as you wrote it, or do you have a program on your computer that does it for you. It sounds good though, I pray all works out for you brother,
