Having achieved 50K words in thirty days, the feat to edit those 50K words looms pretty high. With no time during the writing frenzy to craft near perfect scenes, much focus is needed in the months that follow to fix all the grammatical misses, disjointed plots, and characters with multiple names. It’s almost laughable.
So, after a month of breathing time, I began editing the short stories that are being compiled into a short story anthology. As of today, I have crossed 25K worth of editing. Lot’s more work needed before I can share it with the world. Stay tuned.
When I took on the challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I had no idea I’d have to fight through fatigue, stress, and tons of pop-ups. I discovered something though–writing relaxes and invigorates me at the same time. I accomplished more than just achieving the word count. I finished first drafts of a screenplay and a short story with two other short stories a few scenes shy of becoming completed first drafts themselves. Some of these are projects I never thought I’d start much less finish in 2020. I celebrate everyone who jumped in and created something more than what they had before. Congrats to all the NaNoWriMo Winners.
After months of preparation and posting teasers on the internet, Danny R.O.S.S. has forged a path toward readers who enjoy SciFi action. I wrote the first draft of this story during my first NanoWriMo in 2011 and was excited to release this novel on the first day of my second NanoWriMo, 1 Nov 2020. Both Kindle and Print formats are available on Amazon. Please leave reviews wherever you purchase this YA SciFi Adventure novel.
A blast during a covert operation destroyed a Navy SEAL’s eyes and killed his best friend. He woke up six months later in darkness, his eyes wrapped. His only contact with the world a soft voice. When the wraps were removed, the world took on a different hue. His ruined eyes had been replaced with mechanical eyes. His new mission: Defend the defenseless on the home front with a young female prodigy scientist as his only lifeline during dangerous missions.
