I wrote a new novel -- in 30 days

I did NaNoWriMo last month and wrote an entire novel -- 117,934 words -- in 30 days. I had a blast; it was so much fun... :)

I had a book idea in mind that I was playing with and had decided to write that book, but a few days before NaNo started, another idea floated through my mind and played inside my imagination, so I grabbed it and wrote Pen Stroke.

It offers a humorous look at writers writing a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, time morphing, a kahuna quest, the power of wishes, and the reality of imagination.

I totally love my new novel. I'll be doing some editing and playing around with it some more before I'm ready to publish it.

An interesting thing happened on my way through the month-long noveling journey -- an idea for another book was born from this one... a "how-to" for writing a novel in 30 days.
