Less than 30 days before NANOWRIMO, and I’m zeroing in on the subject matter. While I hope this book has lighthearted moments like my last one, I also hope that it teaches, encourages, and makes people think (which I hope my last one does as well).
I have been mentally preparing myself to “go to the well,” – that place deep inside me where I know the soul of this book exists. The subject matter is going to push me, stretch me, and possibly punish me, but I know it’s a story that needs to be told… otherwise, I may never sleep again.
The idea for this book has been keeping me up at night. I haven’t had that happen in a long time. When I have a book idea inside me that is this powerful, I feel responsible to bring it to life. I don’t know if the subject matter or the feeling of responsibility is keeping me up. I find either prospect exciting in a way.
Pray for me as I prepare and write in November! I can’t wait to see the story unfold.
