Out of Nowhere

I'm 6000+ words into my work-in-progress Out of Nowhere. It's slow going, really slow...I had writer's block for months and couldn't get into a groove to save my life. All it takes to get going again is one little flicker of inspiration, which I got on Sunday. I've written a couple of thousand words since. School ends next week so I have to get as much in as I can before my house is filled with kids again.

I'm completely in love with this book. I'm having a blast writing it. My first two manuscripts involved the same characters, so it's really nice writing different ones and trying new things. I want this novel finished by January so I can enter the Amazon Breakthrough Novel contest for the third year in a row. That my goal again this year, to have a book finished, revised, query-lettered, and ready for the contest.

Happy writing!
