UPDATE: 1737 words to kick things off.
Hi all (all 5 of you ),
Today marks an interesting day. I’ve never undertaken a novel dare immediately after another one concludes. So, today I begin that task. I hope to complete the first draft in 30 days (12/31), but … y’know, holidays may hamper this Dare a bit. This dare is to complete book 3 of a series I’m writing. This one is called Blinded. There are 3 more books after this one that I have planned out.
I have a bazillion and one other things I should be doing, but I love this series and want to keep writing it. November brought me back to the pure joy of writing again, something I haven’t felt in a VERY, VERY long time. So, I write these for myself because writing is the best drug there is. This whole month, I rushed home to slam a quick meal (or eat at my desk) and fall into my keyboard. It wasn’t a chore. It wasn’t to please someone else (who shouldn’t be in my office) or for someone else’s project, it was to open the gate to my imagination and let it soar.
Besides, I get more done when I have a deadline. And I finished Broken in 24 days (72K) while crazy busy with life. I plan to keep this up. I love writing novels and I have 30 plus other books that I still want to write. So, I’m just gonna keep going. Betrayed is scheduled for January 2014. Beyond will be February 2014 and Beneath will be March 2014. That’s the plan anyway. And you know how plans go.
And book 1 is “this close” to final turn in to Elusive Blue Fiction, so I hope to get this novel finally up somewhere where hopefully someone else might enjoy it. I don’t know exactly what these books are, where they fit in, but they are from my heart. I had hoped to get Between out in December, but honestly, I’m just having too damned much fun writing the rest of the series.
So, with my hobo gloves on, a Diet Coke in hand , and a fistful of music I haven’t listened to in a very long time, I’m off! Day 1 of Blinded.
