There is a lot going on in my life, and I honestly had begun to doubt if I’d be sitting here on November 1st, working on The Other Side of Murder. However, as the saying goes: you don’t find the time to write, you make the time to write.
I did. I’ll be back to write more later, but I totally enjoyed that first 1800 words. The daily goal is about 1660 or a bit more, so I have already reached that for the day. Once other necessities are out of the way, however, I’ve no doubt I’ll top it by far today.
I love the way the story feels. It feels like a winner.
Is anyone else playing NaNo this year? Feel free to stop by and say hello!
From my NaNoWriMo Dashboard:
What do a developmentally disabled teen-aged girl, a dead detective and a Japanese fox spirit have in common?
Absolutely nothing, until they find themselves thrown together to solve the detective’s murder.
How does a cop solve his own murder from the grave, when his only solid links to the living world are a Kitsune spirit who can only appear as an ordinary fox when on the physical side of the veil, and a child whose communication skills are practically non-existent?
You don’t know? Well, I don’t know, either.
Let’s find out together, as The Other Side Of Murder unfolds.

I felt the same way about my writing this morning. I hit just over 2,000 words already and i’m taking a break to do “real world” stuff then will return. The story I am working on has been haunting my brain for weeks and I was so excited to start writing it today. I loved my first scene, as I did something totally different than the past and it drew me in right away! Good luck!
What fun, Lisa! Enjoy the journey, and congratulations on the first 2,000 words!
