NaNoWriMo 2020

I decided to nano again this year and I am currently, at the time of writing this, at 11,675 / 50,000 WORDS to meet the 50k words in 30 days goal. The novel I am working on is from a previous nano, who knows when ago, that I had planned to be finished with in July (for my birthday). Life being life, that goal came and went and here I am, typing 90WPM+ of a 70k manuscript with edits. This is the final draft, folks!

A young southern-raised mother and wife who struggles with mental illness returns to Louisiana after living in the northeast with her husband and two prepubescent daughters. A trigger event that leads her to overdose into a coma puts her mind into a fantasy world where fairies and mermaids exist. In this world, she is doted on as the new Princess in the land to live happily in the expansive castle nestled at the center of it all. Nevertheless, there is darkness she has to face and choices she must make or both of her worlds, real and fantasy, could disappear forever.

Synopsis from theory of the heart

Currently I have four selected readers with access to my active google doc and they have the first 3 Chapters to review as of now. I would like to open up to 10 readers total on the doc to get a solid ‘test audience’ in place and see what works and doesn’t for potential readers once I move into the publication phase of this project.

If you would like to read this novel as I write with reckless abandon, send an email to with the title READER READY and complete the following form in the body of your email for consideration. None of the questions are requirements to be considered, I aim to have a variety of varied readers for best analysis of how my writings are read by others.

Whether you would like to read now or wait until I complete publication, your support and attagirls are appreciated. 😁💛
