B3 Update

I LOVE NaNoWriMo, and never would have even contemplated writing the Boomer Sisters novels if not for their encouragement, guidance, prodding, etc. But the one bummer about NaNoWriMo is it's in November. That makes it pretty difficult to be finished in time for Christmas, even though Lulu is amazingly fast.

As many of you know, I've been able to put the Boomer Sister books under the tree for the past two Christmases, but the illustrated (and fully-edited) versions weren't ready until a couple months later. That's one of the reasons I decided to do DaNoWriMo (Dan's Novel Writing Month) this June. Also, I had cool ideas for Boomer Sisters #3 and #4, and didn't want to wait.

So... DaNoWriMo is nearly half over. I finished Chapter 6 this morning, and plan to start Chapter 7 at lunchtime today. The story is taking on a life of it's own, as usual, and I'm having a blast watching it unfold. The early mornings are harder now than they were two weeks ago, and fatigue is starting to set in, but I'm pressing forward. I'm confident it'll be finished by 30 June.
