GREAT NEWS COMING JUNE 1ST!!!! ORIGINAL BLOG NOVEL BEGINS!

For those of you who are not familiar, June 1st is the start of “Write a Novel in 30 Days” month. Actually, any month that has 30 days qualifies as such. This year, my third year of participation, I will be writing a novel ON MY BLOG!

Below is the cover image and back cover of my planned work for June, titled, Ascension Graveyard. Beneath it is a tenative view of what the story will hold.

Being that stories have lives of their own,  and this one has not even begun to be written, I will not be able to give you an “official” book flap summary of what I plan to write being that the content and direction of the story is definitely subject to change.

SUMMARY:

“Everything is ordinary. Things are as they have always been. There are Cities and Yards. People live normal lives, working, going to school, marrying, living and dying. No ripples in the sequence. It will always be this way. This is what the world sees.

Everything is unorthodox. Things are not how they have always been. There are Cities. Junctions dictated by Them, the ones we are never to speak about. I call them the T.O.W.E.S. And there are Yards, the places where you leave your loved ones behind…they are never seen again. This is the reality.

It has not always been this way. But it will always be this way…unless someone makes ripples in the sequence, stops the Ascension, stops Them. I am Etta Teague. I am the Toymaker, and I will bring the change. This is what is to come”

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?: This means that I will dedicate the entire month of June to the goal of achieving a 50,000 word tome. BUT even when I reach novel status, if the book is not completed as pertaining to the storyline, I will press on until finished. Although it would be amazing to finish it in entirety in 30 days. (WE SHALL SEE)

My basic rules for this challenge, apart from the obvious which is not to start writing the actually story until the dawn of June 1, is to at least spend sometime in thought about what I am going to write.

WHAT I CAN ASSURE YOU:

If you follow along with me as I allow this story to unravel, day by day, moment by creative moment, I will present you with the most authentic and original thoughts that my mind can muster, clothed in the skins of a Sci-Fi, suspense thriller. Consider this Blog Novel an extended free write.

WHAT ARE MY GOALS?:

My goal is always to entertain and push myself to the next level in storytelling. I also plan to edit this content once the story is completed and make it available as an Amazon download once the piece has been polished. But until then, do enjoy every quirk that writing this way presents.

WHAT I NEED FROM YOU:

I will need your input, and your help spreading the word about this venture. Share a link to this blog with others so they too can read along. Also give your input in the comments section. That would be GOLDEN!

That is all for now. Mark your Calenders and join the fun! I will have this blog Novel under its own tab in the Main Menu.

Cheers!

    1. Thank you so much! I have done it twice before, and have had success. This time I have a week of infant child care (The God son is 5 months and teething) to do while trying to reach this goal. I usually have him 2 days out of the week. I am already preparing myself for the challenge. I am super excited to start 🙂

      1. That you have done it before would help a lot, I should think. You know what you’re in for. I hope goes well, especially with a young one in the house. Blessings to you. 🙂

      2. What I have NOT done before is blogged my work as I write it. I I will say on average I “kill” at least 10,000 words before its all said and done. This, putting it out on the web pre-polishing, is a bit nerve wracking, but hey, its building character lol

      3. Oh yeah, I would say so. You are much braver than I am, for I don’t think I could do it. However, a lot of readers are writers themselves, so surely will understand that the work will be shown pre-polished. Having seen some of your work, I’m sure you’ll do brilliantly. 😀
