NaNo's Eve - Closely Guarded



Good Evening!

Welcome to Michael's on Halloween or really, NaNoWriMo Eve. 

Sharita and I are about to embark on our 2nd NaNo together. For those who don't know, NaNo is a writing event. Write a 50k novel in 30 days. Whew!

Sound like a lot? Well actually when you break it down by day, its about 1667 words per day average. Can you do that per day? Can you just write and not worry so much about edits?

Last years experience, we wrote 63K on African Sun 2 which is on the way to my editor at some point. It can be done! Put your mind to it and you can achieve! *grins*

This year, we're doing Closely Guarded, our gay say suspense novel of sorts based on a fictional organization called PROTEKT and the murder of a Russian Dignitary. Of course, I have to always pick models and for this, my MC is Ryan Paevey. *licks lips* When I saw this pic, I knew he would be perfect for the main role. Sexy, smart, emotional, and tough! 

Its a menage too, based on a fan fic short I wrote that always begged for more story and well this is the perfect opportunity to finish it.

Wow, I'm looking forward to see what we can come up with. This while finishing up a short for BL as well as edits on Vertigo. Did I mention Sharita is married with kids? 


OOH BOY!


Should be interesting. Cheer us on. Watch the word counter on the right. We'll be starting back at 0 so ignore the 5k. We might use that, maybe not. We shall see!

Also, BL will be here hosting as i'll be at BLRawiyas with the XOXO gang. I know you guys will have fun so make sure to continue viewing the blog.

Have a great evening!

I wish you luck! I'll be anxious to start tomorrow. The coffee pot is set to turn on early and I'll be pumped full of caffeine and ready to go every day for two hours every morning; more of I can squeeze it in. I'm determined this will work for me!

Have a rip-roaring time, M&S!
