So, I’ve finished my NaNoWriMo2014 challenge and I’ve written my 50,000 words in 20 days, instead of the 30 we had. That felt good. Wish I could say the same for my ass. Cramping… It’s hard to sit there for that long and squeeze your brain until a story comes out. Not complaining though. I love this story and as I wrote, it kept cracking open into new tributaries that are flowing towards a great ocean of words that need to be said about these delicious characters.
Can’t wait to get this edited and ready for release.
In the meantime, I am a ridiculously devoted music fan. I hear soundtracks behind everything in life. So, of course I heard music as I wrote this. So here’s a link, for you Spotify folks. You can hear what moved my fingers as I wrote about, friends, and loss, betrayal and love, sex and laughter, murder and a woman who is far more than she thought she was.
Use the link for music. Use the other one to read the first chapter of Touching the Bones: Book 1 of The Leelanau Chronicles.
