I've set up RWAC's Nano blog, Creative Insanity.
Come visit the seven chapter members who are accepting the challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days.
I'm really excited about starting my new story. I'm going to put all the stuff I love in this book. A tortured but honorable hero. A strong, smart heroine that surprises us with her determination and ingenuity. Shocking twists and turns in the plot. A dead husband (don't ask.)
It's set in Savannah. I've never been there but I love the idea of it and the way it sounds. And Dermot Mulroney is the model for my hero.
I'm keeping Nora's concept of the "discovery draft" clearly in mind as I write it. My words are clay. That first draft is the unformed material. I'll mold and shape it into a publishable book in the second and third revisions. That's what they're for. Time enough to take out the instruments to shave off, and add, and form a beautiful book after I get the raw story down.
