Summer Camp is Over

I spent the month of July writing 50,000 words on a novel. And, as of today I’ve written 50,560 words. So close to writing the end of Whispers of Wisdom, which is set in 1747 Chenonceau, France! Then, I will have my first draft ready for a serious edit.

IMG_E5165This is the third time I’ve joined National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! I’ve wanted to see how many hours a day I need to write to complete 50,000 words which is the length of a novella. There is a reason for this as I determine my next writing endeavor. I have an idea for a novella series that I will begin next month. For this I’m also considering a time split option. I’m not ready to reveal any more information at this time. I just know it will be fun to research and write something new.

As you wait for any new releases, I hope you will read all of the Revolutionary Faith books. The final book in the series will be released early 2021! Amazon: Revolutionary Faith Series

Any accomplishments you want to share?

July Camp–NaNoWriMo

KPOQ8333July is here, and I’m so excited about summer camp. Well, a different kind of camp. I’m participating  in the NaNoWriMo Camp where I join other authors on a vigorous journey through the writing world, the highs and lows, the ravines and hills, and hopefully a mountain or two. Each camper has his/her own goal. Mine is a rigorous 50,000 words–new words.

National Novel Writing Month is one of my favorite things to do. I will admit I’ve only done this twice before with success. Why? This is a place I can be held accountable for my goal and my words. That might seem silly because it’s a completely online environment. There are other “people” lurking just like me who need a place to record their words and progress. Each region has a cheering squad where we encourage each other to push forward.

IMG_5960I will post my progress occasionally. As of this moment, I’ve written 2210 words! Woo Hoo! But it is a start, right?

My goal is to complete Whispers of Wisdom (#3 in Gardens in Time) and begin a fun new series yet to be announced. I have my items of inspiration: books, pictures, maps, and vision board. I love the destination, Château de Chenonceau in France. Set in 1747 with the beautiful gardens and the River Cher as the background, my characters are experiencing some interesting scenarios with scheming and intrigue within the grounds they tend.

As I enjoy camp each day, I hope you have some of your own goals and projects for this month. Please share!!!
