It has only been a year since I started my book. Wow, seems like I've been working on it much longer than that. I have taken entirely too much time away from it so I will be returning my attentions to my story again and will post a few excerpts on occasion for your reading pleasure. Stay tuned...

It's a new year so I thought I would share my goals for the year. They are simple really-finish polishing my novel, get a beta reader, write a query letter and send it to agents who have an interest in the fantasy genre. Okay, all of that is simple except the query letter part. How do you summarize 70,000 words into just a few short paragraphs that will interest an agent? I have a lot of research to do.

Now that NaNoWriMo is finished, I will be working on editing and lining up some beta readers for my story. While I am waiting on feedback, I might just work on writing something that is not fantasy for a little while. Unsure, those characters in my fantasy really do seem to have a lot to say.

I have a new granddaughter! Spent some time at the hospital, was in the delivery room with my daughter when she had her. Kalysta Rochelle, such a beautiful name my daughter chose for her baby girl was born November 3, 2010. She weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 inches long. So now that I have rested well after that ordeal I will be getting back to my NaNoWriMo story and trying to get that word count up to where it should be.

Just wanted to say I'm still around, still working on writing when I feel the urge to do so. This year I am participating in my very first NaNoWriMo. Go me! If I have the time, (what with trying to type out 50,000 words or more in a month-piece of cake), I will try to add little tidbits and try to encourage more people to take a look at my blog. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Halloween!
Next month, time to start thinking of what to be thankful for and preparing for the Christmas season which is approaching entirely too fast. Where has the year gone? The year that I was bound and determined to have a book ready for publishing? Oh well, at least one is ready for editing and if my own worst critic-myself, ever stops procrastinating and finding fault with the entire thing, I may just have it ready by next year.
