Introducing: “Kill Words”
Ten days left to NaNoWriMo2020. I’m surpassing 35,000 words this weekend. My goal was 30K by November 30. I didn’t expect to tap into a vein of story gold but I’m enjoying every minute of it.
My NNWM novel is not sci-fi, not speculative, well maybe crime speculative, but I’m an unpublished novelist so I can choose whatever genre the story comes in. Mark that as a plus all you published author wanna-be’s.
The title is “Kill Words”. I expect it will be 60K words in the end. It’s new adult/young adult which means characters are in their mid-twenties just starting out in life. Maisey launches an anonymous blog as an outlet to express herself without the constraints of family expectations. She connects with another blogger, Tyler and is quickly mixed up with him in a blog cyber crime ring. Her life spins out of control until all the false pretenses she rested on are stripped away and she finds her true self.
I’m thinking that most of you who read this blog would not read this book. I’m not doing a good job of building my target audience for future publishing of “Kill Words” but maybe you know someone who would be interested. Drop a comment and let me know. I’ll be looking for beta- readers by the new year.
I’ll also launch a blog based on the character Tyler. He gets to post raw, transparent, diatribes on the ills of society. His posts will include “kill words”, a puzzle for readers to figure out. Should be fun.
I’ve got to get back to writing! I’m still setting my mark on 50K words on November 30th. How many think I can pull it off working full time, overtime, stressed to my core?
