And so it begins…
Welcome to NaNoWriMo (aka National Novel Writing Month) and Day One.
I spent a healthy chunk of the midnight hour punching out the first bits of what will hopefully be a 50,000 word novel.
And so here’s my first paragraph:
A while ago a friend told me about how he and his buddies would get together and tell outrageous combat stories. He said that the big ones always seemed to start with “So there I was”…and they’d go from there.
There are several links to share today:
And here are some possible plot twists:
“There’s something chewy in my coffee.”
A depressed man has a brief, yet life-altering, encounter with a stranger.
There’s a ball of fire rolling through the backyard towards the kitchen window.
The love letters have gone missing.
Someone cannot remember having the large sum of money found in the wallet.
Known existence is a product of the imagination.
“I’ve got to get out of these clothes, fast.”
Pack up the cats and move to a foreign country.
Your character’s best friend has just admitted to killing several people.
Your character is hanging by his/her fingertips…moments from certain doom.
“Either you tell him, or I will.”
An ancient, sealed box has been uncovered during a dig in the back yard.
A lake, a 50 lb. weight, a cable, and a victim.
“Helpful hint: Wait until you’re sober before trying that again.”
So…here’s a good place to check in, rant about the character that’s not moving, ponder the reasons for that writer’s block…and so on…a virtual Write-In as it were.
But keep writing…
