Hi Everyone!

   NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month – It is a not for profit organization that promotes writing a book in the month of November, 30 days and at least a 50,000 word manuscript. I decided today to participate. What in the world was I thinking? I mean that is a lot of writing. As the saying goes in for a dime, in for a dollar. I will do my best and hopefully not embarrass myself in the process. If I do it won’t be the first time so I have that working for me. 🙂

At 1700 words a day this will put my writing skills through their paces. It should be an interesting month. I will keep you posted, but they will be short because I have a schedule to keep to. 🙂

I won’t be slacking off on Derrick’s Deaths it will be published in Spring of 2018 as promised. I am making good progress on it. I hope to have in the hands of a Beta Reader by the end of the month.

Here is a line from Chapter 14: “Tasing the young girl he pushes her into the back seat, he is so fast he is sitting in the front seat threatening the mother before she is able to even form a scream.”

Current work – Derrick’s Deaths

   My current work due out Spring of 2018, finally has a working name. I know what was the hold up. This story has undergone two complete re-works and even now the backstory is on its second version. So much for the outline; it has become my normal process for writing, half punster and half outliner, it seems to be working for me.

Here are Derrick’s Deaths (working title) opening paragraphs:

   “No please, I have a wife and kids to support, please I will pay, I promise in a week, all of it.”
   It’s always the same kind of story, my wife, my kids, my business, I’ll pay, blah, blah, blah. I give them all the same speech, even if they are repeat customers.
   “Look me in the eyes while I am talking,” Jesse pushes his head up using a police expandable baton. “I want to be absolutely sure that you understand what I am saying to you.” He is nodding his head as best he can with the baton digging into the soft palette of his jaw. “You are asking to borrow money again. You are asking me to go against my boss in favor of you? Nodding and choking out a yes. “Understand failing to repay the money you will incur a severe repercussion up to and including death instead of the beating you will receive right now. Nod so I know you heard me.” Nodding fervently, winching in pain at each down stroke. “You must pay  this in full in order not to suffer the most severe repercussions. Today you must pay the vig on the current debt before I can roll it over. You have that right?”
    I know he does we already took it from him, I will play with him and make him even more grateful by letting him use the money we already confiscated to pay his vig. It is good to know how to manipulate people in such circumstances.

Remember my other books are available on the Menu.
