Update on BuNoWriMo
I wrote 1,555 words (my goal for the month is 25 thou) and the name is Life is A Dream Shaboom Shaboom. And I love it. Love my new protagonist who hasn't revealed her name yet, love the rhythm that presented itself, the telling of a life that is happening. I'll let you know how it progresses. I borrowed the feel of her from a short story I wrote several years ago - she'll have some of the same qualities but she only needed that idea to begin and develop in her own way. Whew! That other title 'The Barrens' was bumming me out - too gothic and I want to be light-hearted on this one - more Wally Lamb and less Margaret Atwood if you get me.
Now I shall walk the dog and do some RW revising and then off to work work I go. The lad and his lad are decking the deck. Yes. Life is sweet enough. Good Enough. Oh - now I want to call my book that...hmmm...might.
