I am happy to say I finished NaNoWriMo on day 21. For me the end of NaNoWriMo is just the beginning of something wonderful. I have my draft of The Whitby Files and I like where Wilson Whitby took me, on a journey of discovery, one with mystery and murder yet the story is also about friendships found in the most unexpected places. Now I get to shape him into something people would want to read. I will stay with the routine, which I will share when I have the energy to write it, the one I used for Nano, keeping up that momentum and editing every day will hopefully bring me to the finish line of writing a novel.
I am looking forward to the research, the scene setting and editing my story. The surprise for me was how easy I found the novel-writing challenge. How much I enjoyed writing everyday, (I never missed one) I am truly ready for this and will continue to work on my illustrations for Sugar Goes to the Fair as a break from writing.
So here it is…..
The Whitby Files
Wilson Whitby is a fourteen year old kid. The product of a wild imagination and having a detective for a father, he keeps files on his family and the general population. A habit that leads him into a world of danger. When his father goes missing at sea, Wilson moves in with his demented Aunt in an old folks home. Life is wretchedly dull until Wilson starts a new file on the occupants of Misty Bay Retirement Village and discovers secrets and murder most foul. Who can he trust? When he suspects his Uncle is the person poisoning the residents and responsible for the disappearance of his father.
My dreams are becoming more than just dreams how about you?
