Back to the U.S.A. and writing!

Great Exuma … grand experience. Gracious people. Azure water. Exotic blooms. Eight days of respite from writing “the great American novel”. Now I’m back to Leather Corner Post’s shades of gray-and-white and immersion in word play. There’s beauty in both the Bahaman Caribbean blues and the Northeastern winter whites. A bonus gift: The college is closed today due to weather and I have an additional day of vacation … and time to write. Write. Write. Write.

November: National Novel Writing Month

NaNoWriMo: This is my version of the NaNoWriMo madness. If I inadvertently sound like anyone else, I apologize. I’m joining this movement without really joining. And I’m doing it my way. Here’s my plan:

1. Write. Every day in November. I will sit in my desk chair at my computer and actually write.
2. Finish. My 50,000 word whatever will have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Completed in 30 days.
3. Focus. Writing my 50,000 word mystery shall be my primary job for 30 days.
4. Reward. At the end of November, I’m a winner! If you join me and complete your task, you’re a winner also!
5. Caveat 1. A 50,000 word manuscript falls short of the acceptable length for a full-length novel.

Looking forward to the sequel!” All reader comments and ratings at http://www.amazon.com. (Search on “Beware the Sleeping Dog”)
