The Writing Process – As the Writer Writes… #NaBloPoMo

As I mentioned before, some friends are participating in the NaNoWriMo this month.  One friend in particular, has given me the amazing privilege to read the work as she writes.  I am more and more impressed as each chapter is written and the story unfolds.  All the little details she inserts, the twists and turns the story takes and how real the characters are becoming.  I am not sure who is having more fun, her or me?  Except that she knows how this ends and I don’t and I am sitting here, not very patiently waiting for the next chapter.  Waiting to see what “he” does and how “she” reacts…and if it is all a dream I will send myself in an email to the author and strangle her neck when she opens the email. No, just kidding. But I won’t be very happy.  But in the end, the author is the author and it is their story to tell. And I am enjoying the growth of the author and the characters in the story.  Thank you for taking me on your journey with you.

So far…#NaNoWriMo has been good, but it is only the 6th. #NaBloPoMo

I have some friends participating in the #NaNoWriMo this month.  One in particular finally got the kick in the butt needed to work on her own book.  One that I am VERY excited to be a part of to share in the process while she writes.  I love her excitement and enthusiasm.

She has started the book.  And with each chapter I get to know more and more about the characters and plot.  Not only is SHE getting excited about her characters but I AM TOO as the story develops.  Now I am not an author but I am a blogger participating in #NaBloPoMo this month.  So I guess together we are both writing, her more than I, but I get to share her passion for her story and be entertained by her characters.  I am excited to go through this month with her.  I am excited to see what happens to the characters.  I am excited to see her being excited about her book.  I am excited about her book.  I am excited for her!
