Where do you leave off writing for the day?

Apparently, for me, it’s in the middle of a car crash scene.

I know, it’s crazy.

After reading it, my girlfriend asked me, “What happens next?”

Say it with me, kids, “I don’t know!”

I have an idea and I’m not too happy with it, personally.  But, when I start writing in the morning, we’ll know for sure. So, today’s excerpt is from that moment.

It reminds me what someone once told me.  Life is a series of moments.

One moment today involved bugs. It was slickly terrifying.

One moment included a pink and silver 1970’s Holiday Rambler Vacationer Camper, a crusty old man, and firewood.

Another moment included blood.  Not a good way to have a moment, I would say.

But, for Stevie, this is her current moment.

What’s your moment?Leaving...

It’s morning in Idaho, USA and I’m contemplating what it feels like to start a writing stint. So, for those of you who don’t normally write 1,667 words every day, the below graphic gives an idea of what that means.

For many of us, it’s like running a marathon. Well, it actually IS a marathon, of sorts.

Today is that last day of sanity until December. My family has gird themselves with NaNo armor. Such as treats to throw at me when I’m growling in my office. Whispers of encouragement are being prepped for when I cry my eyes out because the words will NOT come. And finally, coffee, because, well, coffee.

It’s the dawn before the story begins. All is quiet and my love has just brought my first cuppa this morning.

I say, let’s do this, NaNo. Let’s do this, my buddy’s. 

But, most of all, let’s do this, my readers, because in the end, this is about you and giving you what you want. A story that grabs you, takes you with her, and leaves you, changed.
