What is better than getting lost in a good book for the summer? This summer, I plan to get lost in one I wrote. My plan for summer writing is to finalize the novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo. It’s historical fiction, a new genre for me. I will purchase Fictionary, a software product that will help me evaluate and change my novel, line by line. I’m planning to do this in June. If I don’t finish, I will continue through July. In September, the Pacific Northwest Writers Association will be hosting a convention, and I will take this book and pitch it. I hope to find a publisher at the event. I will also continue to write monthly lifestyle articles for Newcastle Living Magazine.
