I can’t believe that as I write this, it is already December! It seems like just yesterday I set out to gather the information for my little improvisational writing experiment.
I hope you don’t mind my sharing a little accomplishment of mine. While you were busy sharing little bits and pieces of your life with me so I can incorporate it into a short story, I was busy participating in National Novel Writing Month 2008. Some of you may not realize that November is National Novel Writing Month – although, I find that hard to believe. LOL! For writers, like me, it means a month all about quantity, word count, volume. It means a month of write now and worry about editing and polishing later.
Well, I set out to achieve this goal of 50,000 words in a mere 30 days. You are now reading the blog entry of a FOUR-TIME WINNER (2005, 2006, 2007 & 2008)!
Now the hard part begins. Dumping 50,000 words out of my head and onto my computer in 30 days pretty much means that I have a lump of clay that I need to shape into something great. I’ll work hard and hope to achieve my next goal: a completed manuscript of another novel.
Before I set out to re-write the new novel, I need to write you all a short story. I have finished collecting information for this first exercise. Now I am shifting gears, gluing my tush to the chair (figuratively speaking), and getting to work writing the short story I promised all of you. I hope to have it ready to post before the new year.
In the meantime, check back here for more fun and games!

    CONGRATS Lisa!!! I have been waiting for you to do a post on NanoWrimo so that I could offer you praise on your awesomeness!!!

    Four Years and Still Going Strong…I’m so proud of you and can’t wait to see how both works turn out. How you manage to get it done and take care of your family and travel for Thanksgiving and all the others things you do is just a testament to your talent.

    I of course have to solider on to continue writing…then I shall be able to mold my mound of clay. 😉 And I have vowed to mold it and not just put up upon the shelf.
