Out of time...

Well, I didn't get it done. The 30 days of DaNoWriMo (Dan's Novel Writing Month) came and went, and the third Boomer Sisters novel is still not finished. :(

I'm close, though. It's over 19,000 words already, and I'm writing chapter 14 this morning (I usually do about 25 - 30 thousand words, and 15 or 16 chapters). I'm not sure how much writing I'll get done over the 4th of July holiday, but for sure by July 15th, the whole thing should be wrapped up (the first draft, that is).

Oh - and big thanks to Michelle's suggestion about introducing a "man with a gun." That's what I did, in a manner of speaking, and it really got things moving forward, plot-wise (if not word-count-wise...).

But what am I blogging for? I've got a novel to write!

You're welcome. And 19,000 words w/ 13 chapters is still a great accomplishment! (It's a lot more than I wrote this month.) Maybe I need another 30 day boot camp myself.
