National Novel Writer's Month - Winner

November 27, 2015

On November 1st, 2015 I wanted to try writing another novel in 30 days.  Wow!  It was so much fun.  The goal was to finish writing 50,000 words  by November 30th.  The  gift of pressure was so helpful.  I didn't get lost in prefection and the story flowed.  Characters introduced themselves and we were off, running with scissors.  Thirty days later there was a new book.  "My First Case: the Adventures Of An Around the Way Girl." My higher self pulled it all together.  All I had to do  show up and the muse took care of the rest.
