April 2015 A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal

Good day people!

Today is the day that we who are participating in the April A to Z Challenge reveal our themes (if we have one).


This is my first year joining all these wonderful people for this challenge. I’m super excited! I thought hard about a ‘theme’ for the challenge and finally figured out what I wanted to do.

My theme is going to be writing another story with my character DeeDee Watson, P.I, from ‘The Man in the Fedora.’ The Fedora story will be finished this week and then April 1 will start the next story. I’ve titled that one “The ABC’s of Death”.

There will be recurring characters, such as William Holden (the Fedora), the little dog Tee, Dee’s mother and brother and a few others.

This story will be more dark and tense then the Fedora story. Dee is hired to investigate a suicide that might actually be a murder. It’s her most dangerous case yet. Will she survive it? Come join me every day in April and see how she does!

Each chapter will be a letter of the alphabet. So it will go something like this;

(Chapter one) Another Case

(Chapter two) Badass Time

(Chapter three) Caught in the act!

And so on…….

Some chapters might only be a few hundred words, some longer. I think it’s rather ambitious for my first time, but I’m hyped and ready to tackle it! Hope you will join me and while you are at it, click on the A to Z challenge button on my sidebar and check out a few more bloggers who have joined. This is going to be a busy and exciting month!

I’ll give you a peak at the ‘book cover’ that I made.

NaNoWriMo ~ Day 4

I’m baaaackkkkk. I have had a great productive day today! Yeah me! It has been quiet, no phone ringing, no dog barking. Nothing but peace and quiet to write in. Blessed be! I managed to produce 2786 words today in a relatively short period of time. It just kept coming so fast out of my brain my fingers could hardly keep up! And I type fairly fast. It’s a good thing because yesterday I got a bit behind. Now I’m predicted to finish Nov. 28Th! Well, only if I keep up the pace.

I now have a total of 7461 words written in 4 days. Not bad.

I was doing some snooping around the NaNo site today after I punched in my word count and some people have 10 or 20 thousand words written all ready!!  20 thousand!! In four days. Me thinks they started writing way before November 1. ha! Of course if I would have been smart and not so lazy I could have done the same I suppose. But what is the challenge in that? Oh well.
