Early evening yesterday I finally clocked into NaNoWriMo with a word count of 50,101.
My first successful project was a collection of short stories. THE POSTMAN ALWAYS DIES TWICE is my first successful crappy first draft of a cozy mystery.
Writing this book while dealing with all the nastiness November, 2016 dished out proved something I already knew but still had serious doubts about, which is –
I’m a writer, darn it!
And I do have what it takes to persevere. One way or another, I anticipate having this book out in 2017.
My full-time writing career started on January 2, 2012, which means I’m coming up on my five year anniversary. I’ve never continuously held down any other job in my life for this length of time.
In other words, I’ve found what I want to be what I grow up, and it is super awesome.
Here are my NaNoWriMo stats for anyone interested.
