50,000 words, 31 days

Since today is July 1st, it's the first day of Camp NaNoWriMo and I've decided that I'm gonna do it or at least try to complete another novel in a month.  I'm gonna write a new novel!!!! :)

I've also thought about what PLOT I want to write about and decided not to pursue my plot bunny about the young woman who has an affair with a married man.  I'm gonna tuck that one back under the rug with a few of my other random plots that didn't make it.  Instead, I'm going to write about the story I mentioned a few months back about a young woman that works as a stripper for money for college, but hides it from everyone until a young man falls in love with her.

 Never fall in love with a woman who sells herself; it only ends badly.

It's called "The Secret".  

So, nothing yet from my perspective agent about "Down in the Creek", but I am starting my new novel!!  I hope you will all keep me accountable and make sure that I finish. :)

Word count - Day 1: 3,344


  1. I like the idea for your novel. I am also glad you will be starting it (and of course finishing it) this month. I get really excited when I start something new, and when my friends start something new too.

    I am excited to watch your project over the next month.

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks! It is really exciting to start something new! I'm hoping that I can finish it, along with taking a vacation, finishing my job this month, packing to move August 1st and some odd stuff. I can do this... I think!

    Thanks again Krista! :)

  3. Woot! I would totally join you but I KNOW I don't have the time. Plus my current WIP needs my help right now. Good luck!

  4. That's okay Jen! Good luck with your WIP! :)
