The Month of Roxanne

November is National Novel Writing Month. That is so fitting because Roxanne Conrad, aka Rachel Caine, was one of the hardest working people I’ve ever known. She pushed on through adversity, overcoming obstacles with such grace that I’ve decided to dedicate my efforts to Roxanne. Honoring her with my words is the best way I know to demonstrate that she meant the world to me because she loved telling stories so much that she rarely let anything come between her and the writing. I will try to live up to her standard. Even when I’m unbelievably sad, I will follow in her footsteps.

Here are my goals. This month, I need to finish Love Code. (ETA: I finished Love Code!  First goal accomplished!)

I also need to draft The Jaguar Knight. All told, that’s about 92K, give or take. (I start working on TJK on Nov 9. Since it’s 82K, I probably won’t finish TJK in November, and that’s okay. I’ll wrap it up in December before the holidays.) The important thing is for me to keep working, even when I miss Rox. Because she would want me to.

Without further ado, welcome to my private NaNoWriMo or as I’m calling it, The Month of Roxanne. TMoR.
