Fighting for attention!

As Nanowrimo writing month is getting closer and closer it almost stared as a disaster.
Today when I got home my Internet server was down and so for the whole town. NO! I thought what am I going to do? How am I going to update my word account and so on. The rumor was it would take long as November 8th till it was going to be back to normal again. But That god it only took like 20 minutes and everything is now working fine.
My Nanowrimo contribution this year 2013 fell on HARD TO SAY I LOVE YOU my personal favorite story that I really want to finish. I also choose that one because I know the characters well and I have most information and research about that novel. Cant wait for Friday to come so I can begin my novel from scratch.
At the same time there are another novel fighting for my attention. I don´t know why my it´s like the characters in it wants me to tell that story to. That's why I have decided to cross write it during times when I take a break or so or if god forbid having writers block... That novel is called SOUTHERN STAR.
I will keep Y´all update on both of them.

Im so frustrated - Just want to scream!

With only two weeks until Nanowrimo im in doubt. I really REALLY want to write my fingers are itching.... But Im having doubts of what novel to write. Every where I read, even my horoscope to today said "go with your guts".... AHHH what does that even mean??!

Okay. I really want to write. So I thought I will choose to write on the novel I´ve got most info about and know the characters the best. It is the novel called HARD TO SAY I LOVE YOU. It´s more likely that I will overcome last years writing goal with this novel than the others. 

My goal is not the 50K but I really hope that I can finish this novel. I really cross my finger cause they say third times the charm, right!

BUT  at the same time I really want to write on another novel but, the question is if I will be able to plan and plot and make all the bio´s and such before the contest begins....

I just wanted to tell Y´all that. I will try to decide and see what my guts tells me...Hopefully reading some get´s my inspiration sparkling for more scenes to that special novel. Now Im going to plan some more.

Bye Bye

Researching the world of pagents...


So Im doing some research for my novel SOUTHERN STAR. It´s about a former child beauty queen now turned country singer who comes back to confront her mother, her stolen childhood and runs in to the teen crush who she dedicated her nr 1 hit song to.

Im just watching documentary's on YouTube about child beauty pageants so I can get more understanding of it and the world around it. Maybe I´ll watch some Toddlers & Tiaras and Honey Boo Boo, just maybe....

As I watch documentary's and clips I take notes and I can see my heroine Charlie's childhood in front of me. Research is important when writing a novel. I hope and maybe plan to write this next month when this years Nanowrimo begins.

I guess Honey Boo Boo aka Alana and Eden Wood are the most famous of the pageant girls...I just have to say I like Honey Boo Boo, you either like her or don´t.

I feel so sorry for them girls dressed up like dolls. And the pushy mothers... living their dreams trough their children's. There are moms on the shows like Toddler & Tiara´s that say they do it for the girls. They are having fun. Okay??!!  Please just let them be kids. But I think It is sad anyways. I feel sorry for these girls.

I want to see if I can catch the ups and downs with this so called "sport".  I am in no way support these pageants. I just think it is an interesting subject to write about.  
Eden Wood & her mom..
