Camp NaNoWriMo & Progress Report

Camp NanoWriMo

I swore I’d never do it again, but here I am, signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo in April. My goal is a very modest 20k words to be used to finish my current project, which is a total rewrite of an as yet unnamed story that was previously published using the title A Dream Come True. The story is undergoing such a complete revision that it deserves a new title. I am not merely editing the existing words. I’ve got the old story open as a guideline as I rewrite it in 1st-person from a single POV (Mike’s). The old version was in 3rd-person alternating POV. The gist of the story remains the same, but a number of details are also changing.

I will be doing the same thing for Another Dream, and Dreaming of You, for which I plan a bit of an expansion from novelette to short novel length.

Cultivating Love - Cover

I recently finished my facelift to Cultivating Love, which also includes an expansion from Novella to short novel length with the addition of about 6k words. The contract for the first edition with Loose ID runs through June 9th. They’ve acknowledged receipt of my notification that I won’t be renewing again this year. Presumably the first edition will be available through that date, but I don’t know for sure, so if you want a copy of that edition you’ll need to get on it before then. The revised and expanded second edition will become available at JMS Books, LLC on June 24th in ebook format, and on June 30th in print format. I don’t have the new cover yet, but I’ll share it once I do.

  1. Oh, and btw. I’ve come across the word “filibuster” several times this week. Let’s hope I find something else to pique my interest before tomorrow, or there’s a great possibility that my Friday word for you will be …filibuster! 😀

    1. Oh dear. Here’s hoping something grabs your interest. I’m sure I could make it work, but it would be limiting. 😐
      I still need to write the one for tomorrow. It’s been that way the past few weeks. I used to get to them early in the week, but lately it’s Thursday afternoon.

        1. LOL…No, I’m putting myself out there to take any words that you want to give. But I suppose it’s worth considering the power you have to steer the story (Although, as you noted on the scene where I had some potentially racy words and ended up doing a story with a kid and a cow, that won’t necessarily work out as you planned anyway).
