Last November, in 2016, I took the NaNoWriMo challenge and wrote over 50,000 on a novel. It was an exercise. I wanted to see if I could discipline myself to putting out a certain number of words every day. I also wanted to write a story with more action and complications than I normally write into my first drafts.
With that in mind, and a single image of a young woman unwrapping the contents of a parcel, removing the bubble wrap and tape from a funerary urn, I began. I did write over 50,000 words, but I did not finish this novel. After many months, I’m picking it up again and taking another look.
I realize that I really like these characters and they each have a unique and somewhat colloquial voice. There are plenty of complications. I only need an ending.
Having just finished working through my other two novels with my critique groups, I need something else to work on with them. I took in the first chapter and they are very enthused. So it looks at though this will be my writing project for the next few months at least.
Wish me luck and send good vibes.
