Have Query- Next project

Story Teller coverSo I am in the process of Querying my narrative non-fiction Novel The Angels Within, long process and learning tons. I find sites like Query Shark, Query Tracker, and Writers Digest invaluable.

But the best thing is I can concentrate on writing fiction now. I have interest in my Dystopian romance trilogy so need to lock down the first draft. I started working seriously on this during NANOWRMO last November.  I am at 90,000 plus words and Chapter Twenty Three so far.

My critique group is very encouraging and I think helpful in catching all my little mistakes. Along with the curious questions about each character, they are a tremendous resource to keep me on track. I love hearing what about this person or that  person as if they were real.  To think this entire story was the result of a dream is amazing. I can see the whole think in my mind playing like a movie. I hope it will be done in the style of Divergent.

Set in 2250 in the dome covering what used to be NYC Shall is the official Historian of York Circle. Newton the Second wants Shall to help with a project, right after her childhood hero has been executed. She has to put her misgivings aside and work with the man who signed Milton’s death sentence to save the city as they know it.

And I have two more planets to consider and their stories. I’m pulling out old documents and reworking the entire story arch. Just goes to show you when you write THE END on one piece It should only start Chapter One of the next!

Write On, Diana

I did IT!

I was hesitant to do the NANOWRIMO Event but plunged in full gear. I sort f cheated having been working on a current project for the last couple of years and stalling out.

The idea was one I’ve been playing with for a long time. And trying to et it down right I was given some excellent insight as what was and was not working. Having a place where I felt I needed to be accountable, helped.  Also the feeling that so many oters were struggling right along with me also pushed me.

Do any of you know someone who did this? Have you tried in the past?

50,000 words in 30 days is a great challenge.

The cute little video and certificate to print out was a surprise.

Write ON!
