NaNoWriMo, here I come

Well, I'm biting the bullet. Tomorrow is the kick off for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). This will be my first attempt at writing an entire novel over the span of 30 days. I still feel like I have a bunch of research to do, but I should have enough done to get a good start.

If you would like to find out more about NaNoWriMo, please visit this link - http://www.nanowrimo.org/

Here is a brief synopsis of my NaNoWriMo project: The Shepherd's Journey

On the night of Christ's birth, young Obed is tending sheep with his father and two older brothers. After visiting baby Jesus, they proclaim Him as the Messiah. But a tragedy turns the family away from God. All except Obed, who can't get the visions of the angels out of his mind.

Thirty years later Jesus Christ begins his ministry, and Obed is still curious about who this man really is. After rumors of Christ's Resurrection circulate, he seeks out the apostles to find the answer to the question that has been burning in his mind for over thirty years - Who is Jesus Christ?

Thanks ladies. I am really excited about this story because it was one which was begging to be written for two years. I just never knuckled under to do the research for it.

Right now on my desk I have two Bibles and four reference books to help me along. It's been a slow start, but I'm hoping it will pick up soon. Getting more than an average of 5 hours a sleep a night might help.

Thanks for the support and encouragement. I really appreciate it.

Thanks Marilyn. It has been a long haul so far, but it's really beginning to get interesting now, so hopefully the pace will pick up.
