30 Days To Write: Redemption












After much deliberation, I have decided to give National Novel Writers Month one more chance. I have decided that since I have never finished a NaNoWriMo book in 30 days, I have something to prove to myself, but I plan to do it my way.

I've asked several of my nearest and dearest, and it seems like the majority of them would like to see another collection of short stories, instead of a full novel. I have people asking for a novel also, but to those people I say "just wait."

I have finished my first NaNoWriMo book and it only took two years of the event. The problem is that it was being handled by a horrible agent and I would like to change a few more things before I release it.

The new NaNoWriMo project will be called: Guy Drinking Coffee #3, and it will be another short story collection.

This new book takes its title from my aspiring role in films, as a credited "Guy Drinking Coffee #3," in as many movies as possible. I have worked on and appeared in a few independent films, but I have yet to be cast in his dream role. Guy Drinking Coffee #3 will be my third collection of short stories, and I plan to do something with it I haven't done with the other two collections.Most if not all of the stories might just tie together somehow.

This title also ties the "3" from this role to the fact that this is my "3rd" collection of stories.

I hope by the time Guy Drinking Coffee #3 is finished, we will be moving forward and releasing my second collection, Cloud 8 and Other Stories. I don't like to make projections of what will happen, but the plan is to have #2 out by Christmas or New Years and have the 3rd ready by spring.

Fingers crossed people, and best of luck to my fellow NaNoWriMo authors!
