Day 1

Today’s word count: 1837.

This is the first day of NaNoWriMo and it’s also the first day of the Malice in Memphis Annual Writer’s retreat.

Here’s a glimpse of my little slice of heaven (at least for the next 3 days).

Our first night including a brainstorming session.  There is only one other person participating in NaNo this year, but each of us is involved at some stage of a writing project.  After an enlightening discussion on characterization — “let the situation help define the character; put her in a situation and watch her work her way out of it, you will see the type of person she is, without a menu of descriptions of her looks — and the consumption of several glasses of sangria, it was time to get back to work.

Well, perhaps I should say, some of us returned to work, others went to bed.

This was a good day.

C'mon! I know you got something to say . . .
