There’s a lot going on right now. National Novel Writing Month is in full swing. Right now I have 11,243 words. I thought I knew what the story was about, but I’m giving the characters full reign over the story, so they are taking me to places I didn’t expect and the theme of the novel is slowly changing. It was about a girl with a brain tumor going for one last trip with her friends to the beach and she falls in love with a guy. But the friends in the story have put such a focus on hooking-up, that the girl’s vow of chastity and the boy’s manhood are both being challenged. I think the novel may now be about standing strong in the midst of sin. I don’t know. All that matters for this is the word count, so we’ll see where the story ends up. By nature I’m a seat-of-the-pants writer anyway, so this has been a lot of fun.
