July Camp NaNoWriMo is DONE

Good day, all!

Book 2 of the Greenshore series is written. Oh, it is rough and only at about 28,000 (of the projected 35,000) words; but it is also accompanied by a few short stories written for background development. All in all, I've hammered out over the 35k word goal this month and am pretty happy with the outcome.

Book 1 is in the hands of three folks whom I REALLY look forward to their feedback (the good, the bad, and the ugly). At the end of the day, I just hope they enjoyed the ride.

It's August now and the high heat of Summer is in full bloom. It's a little easer for me to huddle indoors these afternoons to play around with other writing tasks and expand on my Greenshore universe. That's the thing about this project: its still FUN to write. Speaking of which, I've begun to compile the various notebooks and electronic media into a single (offline) source.

Now that Greenshore has become a fleshed-out entity to me, I don't want to spend a lot of time following up on finding the right note in the right place.

Hoo boy, looking at books 3-5 is going to require no small amount of details when it comes to the individual character plot resolutions...

...and the hooks for book 6's new arc.

Letting the Inspirations Happen

Hi everyone!

Well, the first week of NaNoWriMo is winding down and I'm hitting the marks (so far!). It's been a very writer-y (Dave English) year. Looking back at last year's NaNo, I've come to realize that I have put together three novels / novelettes.

This has been the year for me to 'put it on paper'.

Not just the planning and the copious number of notebooks and Word files.

Write it! Has been my mantra. I've been preaching this at my bi-monthly Writer's Block down at the Niederkorn Library and (up to 2017) and personally, I've had varying degrees of success at that myself.

This year has been different.

The question is 'why?'.

The big thing is that I've moved from keeping my structure and research in various places, shifting to putting all research and planning down in the document that will (eventually) become my final edit. One-stop writing, as it were.

The other big thing is that I've been open to any and all things that inspire…

Glub...

Halloween...

Gaming and trick-or-treat night with friends and family...

Stranger Things...

Must keep free time to focus on NaNo prep...

Focus... Write... Focus...

...then the cats wake me up at 2 a.m. and I binge out at Netflix.

Mischief Managed.
