NaNoWriMo starts today!

Sooooooooooo much happening with my Elyrian Brides.  I am tooling away on Octavia's next book when I realize that I may need to look at Athena's story again. Ugh! I hope I can make my deadline.  So to that end, I'm going to use NaNoWriMo to help me push Octavia's story out. Then once it is out maybe then I can see what has to be done with Athena's story to make them mesh. Why do they have to mesh? Because they are sisters and I wrote that they would talk. Ugh! Why did I do that? *smh lqtms*

NaNoWriMo says I should write 1667 words a day. That's around 50,000 words. If I follow their rules I'll be over that for Octavia. So maybe I won't even take the whole month. But it is my goal to write at least the recommended wordage per day.

So I'm going to be super busy for the rest of the year. Especially with personal commitments and the holidays coming up. So I won't be around to blog. Hopefully, Athena will be launched without much revamping to be done and on time. Then I can settle down and tune into the brides on Elyria.

It is my aim to publish the next series of books all at one time. I read the criticisms and was perplexed. Then I remembered, those who so graciously chose to read my stories don't live in my head. *chuckle* So they can't see the rest of the story until after I write it down and publish it. So I'm going to publish them all at once. I want to do them right so that all will hopefully be made clear. I really do love where the story is going.

Also, I am very tickled to have had my first interview here. I was just tickled and humbled to be asked. I really enjoyed doing it and Nulli Para Ora asks some great questions. Not to mention she is an awesome writer in her own right.

So, bear with me. I've suspended story time until I'm finished with Octavia's story. Besides, I am impatiently yet patiently waiting for the drawing of Shawntiqua. I've seen a sketch. *bounces happily* She is a hottie! *chuckle* Can't wait to get going on her again.

Also, shout out to the universe of writers and storytellers: Talk to your muses! *chuckle* Seriously! I'm getting ideas for stories I don't do. I declare one morning I woke up with the best idea for the sequel to a popular movie. I remember thinking what an awesome idea and fell asleep again. I woke up not being able to remember the idea but knowing I had it before or at least dreamed it.


That's all for now.
