Preparation for writing the first book in my memoir series at the online Camp NaNoWriMo is moving along. So am I. A few months ago I downsized my writing space to make a room for company, and to ultimately, remodel the room when the damn rain stopped. With this month-long 1600-words-a-day challenge coming up in a week, I decided to return the room to it’s former use as my writing space. There’s just no comparison between the dark 3′ X 5′ area I was using and this heaven with 3 windows and about 8′ X 8′ of open space. I know, still a laughably small space, but I also know how to count my blessings where they hatch!
With the move out of the way, I now have the memoir series title, the titles of all three books, a draft of the synopsis of the first book, and working titles for all the chapters in that book. This is huge. Every step forward is worth a celebration in my mind, though. Being the wild loner that I am, I celebrate by writing you an update. I really need to calm the hell down.
I will post the synopsis and titles in the next few days, maybe even tonight if I have time. Meanwhile, I need to finish reading a friend’s preview copy of her book, and writing up my notes about it. I may get really nutty and do some laundry and house cleaning. Nah, I’ll give it another day. I have awesome priorities. I should write a book about them.
Here’s my pitiful plea for you to stop long enough to add a comment, and please…”like” me. Isn’t that pathetic?

That’s a huge office space! And a busy month coming up…Of course, I’m following your progress. Looking forward to the synopsis and titles. *Hugs*

It won’t be for long…I have to get out all the journals, hospital papers, etc to use while writing the memoir. Having all that on hand is going to be a challenge.
thanks for coming along on my journey.

I don’t envy you trying to keep all those papers organized in the days to come! Remember to get out and see people once in a while, wild loner, and get a decent meal. This is going to be really fun.
