Getting Ready for the NaNoWriMo Sprint

Less that a week to go till the start of NaNoWriMo2017. I’m spending about half my writing time getting the first fourth of the book planned out. I may have to do the rest next week.
I want to have the broad outlines of the new book in place, so I can know the ending point I want to aim for. Yes, I am basically a Planner – at least, I prefer to know the general direction of large projects, and draw up benchmarks for my work, so I can finish at the time and place I want to be.
Here is the working cover for the new book – I’m thinking about using my initials – LS – and turning that into a name for my sci-fi books. Not to hide as a man, but to differentiate between my mystery/suspense books and the sci-fi ones. If I end up writing in another genre, I may do the same for it.

Welcome to My New Website

I’m planning on using this site as a general Author website. That means:

  • Talking about my WIP – Work in Progress – I will occasionally post short excerpts from my novels or nonfiction books.
  • Using it to promote my new books – if I don’t tell everyone, how will they know I’m done and the book is out of the gate (to use a horseracing analogy)?
  • Posting about Things I’ve Learned About Writing, starting with this, that was accepted by the Writing Cooperative on Medium.
  • Links to other sites that I’ve found helpful – writing, publishing, managing a business (which is what writers do).

Look for updates at least once a week, on Thursday morning.
