Monday is the first day of National Novel Written in a Month, month haha! Are you participating? As usual, I stick to my guns that real writers don’t bother with this event because we’re mostly already on deadline and adding one more deadline with no guaranteed results is pointless. Most of the authors I’ve talked to already are stressed but on massive deadlines with projects that will keep them working close to the end of the year.
But for those who are participating there could be some redemption or benefit, right? If you’re going to try this career, you’ll need to develop discipline and NaNo will do that. If you’re forced to write every day, even just for fun it will give you an idea of what career authors do. It will potentially teach you to plot fast, write faster and not worry about the fears that hold you back from publication.
My main goal is to finish “Surrender to Love” my story about Livia, the artist who lacks world experiences and at the suggestion of her therapist, moves to Las Vegas and engages in a one night stand. Only when Bruce shows up at her door, he’s the opposite of his appearance. Large, looming, powerful, Bruce could have any woman he wants. But due to a troubled past and the things he wanted in a mate, Bruce had difficulty in moving on until his previous mentor taught him a different way to live. Can he convince Livia that submission to her could be the key to experiencing an entirely different life if she’d simply surrender to love?
Aimed at Decadent Publishing’s 1NS line.
