I wrote the first draft of my novel in 30 days, thanks to the NANOWRIMO and my friends Amy, Dylan, and Cameron for keeping me on my toes! I must say, it was really fun this year. My friend Cameron introduced me to word wars which means you set a timer and write fast as all get out for 15 minutes trying to beat out your friend (I mean enemy!). Lucky for me, I won! Hahahaha!
The work still needs polishing and smoothing . . . but, that's the easier part. I've already started on revising my first chapter. I plan on revising two chapters a month. By the summertime, I think the work will be in better shape and I will be ready for a month off . . .
At that time, I'm hoping to travel to Wisconsin to see my old high school friend Becca and her girlfriend and then maybe friends in Portland/Seattle area. I want to pretend I'm an old retired man in his 80s searching for old friends and rediscovering my youth. I might even wear a bald wig and a mustache when I get off the airplane. I might even wear plaid shirts and smell of old potatoes. Who knows! Anything is possible.
I might even get arrested by airport security for looking insane!
