NaNoWriMo 2014 ~ Sneak Peek

I am continuing my Sassy Johnson private detective series so part of my preparation is already done.  However, I do have to work on what happens in her main case as well as any minor cases she will have going simultaneously.  As usual, I also need to look in on her love life periodically to make sure she's not trying to run that sweet young Jason Quince away.

The working title for this year's novel is Motherly Love.  I decided to get kind of creative and made a book cover for it.

 Lord knows I don't know anything about cover design but doesn't this cover pique your curiosity?  You know the story has to do with a mother and her child.  You also know that the mother either is or was in prison. Who's that baby's daddy? Now you'll find that out soon enough. What is Sassy's role in all this? Snooping around duh, that's what she does best. Well, besides making a mean margarita.

Stay tuned if you want to find out more.  Later good people, I'll holler!

Let's Do This NaNoWriMo Again


     It's really a shame that I haven't blogged since last year during NaNoWriMo. And what's even sadder is that I didn't even let you guys know if I won or not.  Well...

     I wrote over 51,000 words of the second novel in the Sassy Johnson series.  This year I'll be doing number three.  My plan is to write 75,000 words this year, which means I have to do around 2,666 words a day.  Now if I do that for the entire 30 days, I will have a whopping 79,980 by the end of the month. 

     This goal is pretty ambitious but I think I can do it, or get pretty damn close.

     I've drafted a working outline, that I'm pretty happy with but I'm sure will get tweaked here and there as the story unfolds.

Well that's enough messing around, let's get to work planning these magnificent novels we are going to write next month.

Until later, I'll holler.
