Today’s Daily Post prompt—MYSTERY
Mystery is an excellent choice for me this month. November is NaNoWriMo and I’ve entered for the first time. I have written one mystery novel, The Neon Houses, available on Amazon.com http://amzn.to/2kSqdPX.
Houses was published in December, 2016, and it has received excellent reviews. Just like my readers, I have been waiting for the next story in the series, but so far it’s only come to me in bits and pieces. I’d been working on an outline, off and on, for over six months, but I couldn’t get my mind in gear to move the project along.
Enter The Daily Post one-word prompt. Participating in this challenge has brought me very close to the feeling I had when I wrote the first book. The challenge has me sitting down at my computer each day and behaving like a writer. I don’t spend copious amounts of time on social media each morning because I am dedicated to daily blogging. I have a post to write.
I say all of this, simply to say that whether or not I complete NaNoWriMo is still a mystery, but I intend to give it my best shot. That means that I will be cutting back on my daily posts and may only blog two or three times a week. Those posts may or may not pertain to WP The Daily Post prompts. I may slip you bits of the novel I’m working on. However the book turns out, it will remain in the mystery, thriller genre.
Thanks for supporting me during the month of October when I began this exciting reboot of my writing practices. Your likes, comments, and reblogs mean everything. I look forward to sharing my NaNo experience with you, and I expect it to go well since I have preordered a NaNoWriMo Winner’s t-shirt.
Your one-word prompt posts and all of your regular blog posts are examples of excellent writing, and I will be reading you, daily. Occasionally, if you allow, I’ll show support by reblogging you.
