I went to a book signing of yours at Toadstool in Milford NH. I asked you to write something inspirational in my copy of your book 20th Century Ghosts because I was going to attempt the NaNoWriMo challenge (write a 50K novel in the 30 days of November). You wrote “The clock is ticking Get going and write that novel”.
The month of November is over and with your book opened up to that page by my computer I was able to complete the challenge and be a 2007 NaNoWriMo winner.
It was my first attempt at fiction and although I had prepared a detailed outline of where I thought the story should go, the characters took me down entirely different paths.
It was a lot of fun, a great learning experience and showed me that with focus and determination, I can pretty much do anything.
Thanks again for your words of encouragement. Best wishes.
Gosh, Wendy...I'll bet it feels good! Congratulations! I do hope you will attempt publication and let us know what's happening with it. And at the risk of repeating myself, Joe is a super nice guy. Probably the most generous and thoughtful of any author I've ever come across.
