My Internet has been sketchy.
I’ll update as I can. This post is for Day Three of Camp Nano. I’m using Word Count Dashboard to track my progress off-line so I’ll be able to keep you updated.
This post will be short and sweet. My finally total for Saturday was 156 and Sundays total was 246. So far today has been an awesome day and I can’t wait to find time to share my total with you. Have to go pick up my baby and then off to pick up my other baby.
I thought I posted this… Oops!
Breathing life into it – I hope
Well I’m 150 words into my goal for today of 208 words. Edited up to chapter seven, chapter eight has bit the dust and has been pulled apart and divided into pieces which now reside in chapter seven and nine.
I will keep at it as time allows today. Slowly inching toward my goal. Wishing now I hadn’t already set up the table of contents.
Well lack of Internet may keep my progress from begin reported daily but I did get my 208 words written last night.
I have decided to continue editing/rewriting Out of the Blue as my Camp NaNo project. It was already over 65K and I set the goal for 75k. I’m not sure I’ll reach it as for every three words I type I delete two.
I’m still working on this one.
It is a thorn in my side that I can’t quite reach. I have delved into reading and listening audiobooks like my life depends on it. Hoping that I’ll absorb them and be able to get this thorn worked into shape. I was supposed to start Camp Nano today but my mental struggles with this monster keep me from moving on.
I wonder if I should just abandon it for a few months. Maybe we both need some air. I feel like I’m making progress overtime I begin edits on this 45k beast that has grown by 20k since it was ‘finished’.
Maybe I should tackle it as my Camp Nano until new inspiration strikes. My November NaNo came to me in a dream. How do your ideas come to you?
Here are the links to previous revisions of the monster. And the below them you’ll find the latest version of the beginning. Find my personal links on the side if you want to chat about your writing endeavors.
Out of the Blue
16 years ago.
Callie’s heart beats against her chest, she knows by the end of the day, she might be a widow left to care for four little girls alone in an unfamiliar world. She clings to her husband as the sun sets across the ocean, her instincts telling her his pride has already decided his part in the events about to unfold. Continue reading
So, here we are again.
I’m posting yet another edit of Out of the Blue. If you’ve been following along I hope you see growth in the excerpt. I added at bit more to it today for your reading pleasure. Including the Prologues I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep. This version is the result of my editor, Genevieve Scholl and a great lady, Renee Stanley, who is a big help to me.

I have finally decided to release my little bird into the world at least a little more. Soon I will be posting a full chapter of Out of the Blue onto Wattpad. I cannot define soon any more accurately because I am going to wait until I get feedback from a couple of people.
