A couple of weeks ago I finished the third round of editing on my novel The Kwan Factor. This is a novel four years in the making. I got the original idea while attending the Iowa Summer Writing Festival, where the amazing Kelly Dwyer encouraged participants to plot a novel in this week-long workshop. My snarky ADHD narrator proved hard to tame, and it wasn’t until I took the brilliant Hugh Ferrer’s Clock and Camera workshop summer before last that I came up with an approach to manage her. So happy to say this book is done (for now). Many thanks to the friends and family that supported me during this journey.
I’m currently working on ideas for what to work for NaNoWriMo. For those not in the know, that’s National Novel Writing Month , the writing challenge where participants write 50,000 words for the month of November. I have a couple of partly finished novels I’ve considered revisiting for this challenge, but I’m also brainstorming for what would be a series. I’ve got a few weeks to make up my mind.
Stay tuned for further developments!
