guardian_of_hope: Together We Are Strong (Default)
I am highly amused at how well I'm doing with Camp NaNoWriMo this month. At least, as far as my word count in concerned, I'm doing well. I have a sort of challenge to be done by this week end but that's a personal thing. If I do get done this weekend, I am totally going to start the next book.

I have decided that I am doing a trilogy Dom becoming a detective and then I'm jumping it ahead five years. I'd like to have the three stories done by the end of August, but we'll see.

The last of my trilogy has the least flesh to it, but I'm going to keep working on it. My next book I already have figured out. All I really want to say is that it is definitely going to have the Coast Guard in it.


That's enough for now, gotta go!

I'm so glad that my story is going so well. My strategy of writing my word count as new stuff and then editing at need is working for me. Although last night I had a five second urge to change Dom from a Marine to a Coastie, but I decided against it. I think I might make my NaNo novel about a Coastie though. I'll have hacked out a couple of Highband Mysteries by then.

I need to do some more research for my characters though. A few questions about Marines, but also some about adreneline and pain in regards to knee replacement and leg injuries.

I intend to space out my medical research over the course of the novel and when I'm done maybe go ask the local recruiter if he could answer a few questions if I can't answer them somewhere else.

Um, yeah, I know, I haven't even solved my FIRST mystery and I just had my second one pop up. The next novel (August?) doesn't have a name, but if there was a single image on the front cover, it would be a pair of dog tags (I don't know if they're bloody or not) and it's about Dom's old Gunnery Sergeant who retired to Huntsville, Texas and has been kidnapped. I'm sure a good title will come to me as I work. I know that the Gunny is named Tom and his wife is Kate.

Ok, they were Tom and Kate, then I realized where I'd heard that particular pairing before and...it's not happening. I'll find good names for them later on.

Also, Dom is missing his right thumb, it was severed in the accident that tore up his leg and busted his knee. Every time Dom has to picks something up, I find something of comparible size and weight and make sure he can carry it without using his thumb. Opposable thumbs, who knew they were THAT important?

It's like making sure that it's his LEFT leg that is damanged, not his right, because he has to be able to drive without constant pain. (It's kind of a thing.)
