Working on Edits and Thinking about NaNoWriMo

Am editing Surfer Bride and adding some more detail. I always go back and add additional information after I write “The End.”  I’m filling in stuff I knew I needed to go back and do.  Once that’s done, I’ll read it from beginning to end and tweak it one more time.  Then on to the beta reader in Memphis. Then it will be submission time.

Was thinking I would finish this particular manuscript after NaNoWriMo starts but now I realize I have 14 days to get ready for NaNo. I have my hero’s name and a few details about him in my head.  So, I’m going to work on a new WIP for NaNo. The working title is Obsession.  This one is going to be a biracial story. Wish me luck.  I may not get it done since I have edits also to work on for the two books I have coming out in 2011.

Here’s my inspiration for Sebastian, the  hero for the new WIP:


  1. Glad you’re doing NaNoWriMo. Last year went really well for us both. Will try this year also but family health problems may present a problem. Anyway, congrats on the publications and can’t wait to hear more Obsession. RitaVF

    • Thanks Rita. I hope you get to participate more than you think you will- you have a busy month or two coming and I wish you luck there.

  2. LOVE the name Sebastian, by the way. And what great inspirations. NICE!

    I’m excited for NaNo this year. Last year was my first time ever participating in it and I had a blast. Love the friendships and encouragement from the other writers.


    • Last year was my first NaNo as well and I actually SOLD the book I wrote! YAY! Thanks for liking “Sebastian” The inspiration guy is a fantastic actor. Give me your NaNo name and I’ll add ya as a buddy!

  3. I haven’t decided if I’m up for NaNo this year. I’m kind of already in the middle of a project and I don’t want to put it on the side to start something else (although with the stops and starts I’ve had on it, I could probably put it off until November, lol). I may be joining y’all, no telling

    • I was going to finish Surfer Bride but I have- I think you could work on what you’re working on- just start the 50,000 count from where you are on Nov 1- I know some folks that did that last year.

      • That isn’t a bad idea…I may do that. Thanks, lady!

      • Glad to help! Want you to play with us.
