Hello, and Happy Fourth of July!
After a very interesting trip to Minnesota to see the Grand Portage Falls (we're always exploring the unknown), I am not quite sure what we will end up doing tonight in terms of the holidays. However, we are attending a family reunion in Southern Indiana tomorrow afternoon.
And we get to meet kitties! Sadly, we're not taking any home. We already have four.
On the trip to Minnesota, I brought a notebook with me to continue jotting down ideas for my upcoming sci-fi compilation novel, The Crazy Chicken Escapade. For your recollection, the main characters from Rockybado, The Jazzy Island of Dinosaurs, and The Magic Video Game come together to go on an adventure (I will give you all the details later in my novel!). It is 30 chapters long (my novels are typically 20 chapters long), with 4 quickies (typically 2), and 2 very long chapters (typically 1. I need time to write it, am I right?!)
If you’ve read my novels, you’d understand where I’m going with this. To those of you who have not, please go to my main page and check out my novels by scrolling to the bottom of the page, where you will find links to my e-books on Amazon!
I am already over 32,000 words into my project, and 7 chapters left. However, my initial goal was 50,000 words. I will get there, or I won’t.
In several of my chapters, you will get to personally meet the main characters. In others, you will see yourself going on the adventure with the characters.
I used my old notebooks to write several of my chapters because I liked the plot lines that I used when I originally wrote in a notebook. That was about 10 years ago. However, I “beefed” it up with an expanded plot, and I added to it a few subtle jokes that people might like.
However, while I am transferring what I had written in my Minnesota notebook, I hope you all have a great Fourth and an even better weekend!
Please stay tuned next week for a character sketch of Olivia and Levi Cranston from The Magic Video Game.
