Nano update

Sorry it has been more than a week since I updated you guys . I have had some up and down days and for the most part the story is going good. Although it has changed several times, I am still writing it. Fortunately or unfortunately that can be a good thing, keeps me on my toes. I am doing word sprints with the virtual write ins with Nano virtual write ins and through their sight.

I am over 13,000 words so far and am still going strong. It is a murder mystery instead of a western. The story seemed to change as I wrote this month, go figure.... And as with all nano / first drafts it will have to be  re written but the story is there.... I am loving it... talk to you all soon....  write on

Nano is apart of me

Well its the actual night before nanowrimo, heart and  stomachs are all a flutter waiting til the stroke of midnight where  we can actually release the story we have so diligently been planning, creating and outlining all month long.  Over at nanowrimo site they have been equally busy making preparations for all of us who will gather there in the month ( and months that follow November. 

My story was originally thought of as just western but now it has turned into a mystery, but after breaking it apart has tuned into a missing persons mystery set in simpler times.  There were no cars, just horses and buggies, women wore long skirts and the  men worked hard on their lands or in the other things that helped make money and the land great. 

Almost like Little House which I so love/ loved watching. 

The working title and may be the actual title when done is Molly's Journey and is about a woman who sets out  to find her twin when she learns she is missing.

I hope you come back for updates

Yes that is a holiday, should be a national holiday but what do I know.... However  for the countless - and I do mean countless writers out there this is the busiest month of the year. That's because during November millions and millions of people from all over the world get together and write a novel together. As together as you can via the internet.

I am also partaking in this undertaking as well and will be posting snippets of my story here. I wrote this story a few nano's ago and am working to rewrite it and this year finish it.  It is about a young woman who works to help women who are going through or have gone through  marital abuse and have escaped.
