Hello Dear Ones!Â Marcia here.
Wherever it is on this beautiful globe that you call home, a warm welcome to you.Â Thank you for stopping by!
This month of November is an exceptionally busy one for yours truly. As a registered contestant in the Nanowrimo competition â€“ thatâ€™s the National Novel Writerâ€™s Month â€“ Iâ€™m to complete a minimum of a 50,000 word fictional novel â€“ thatâ€™s 1667 words per day, every day during the month of November. What a challenging and joyous journey this has been and continues to be!
Currently Iâ€™m just over 42,000 words with 5 days left to complete the basic requirement. Does that mean Iâ€™ll have a book finished come November 30th? Not on your life! December is editing month. Everything Iâ€™ve completed by then, whether it is magnificent or simply awful, perfectly honed or grammatically ineffectual, or potentially there may be a section or two with horrific punctuation â€“ however the story has unfolded by then, Decemberâ€™s the time I get to play with the flow, structure, formatting and tweaking of whatever Iâ€™ve recorded this month.
Even so, look for more of Marciaâ€™s Meanderings on a regular basis come December. The skills Iâ€™ve gained from the dedication to this writing process have been invaluable for me. Iâ€™ll continue to use and fine tune those skills here on M&Mâ€™s Musings, hopefully, and intentionally, for your enjoyment.
Create a fabulous week for yourself! Mike will be posting regularly in the interim, and I’ll post more again after December 1st!
BTW: Here is a synopsis of my novel:
Title: The Power of Grace, Hope and Joy
Three women and their penultimate behind-the-scenes techie are about to venture into the world of seminar presentations on topics near and dear to their hearts – yet their hearts are testing them on the very topics they wish to teach.
