Note: I am trying the post from email feature on this entry.
Although I am way behind in the whole word count thing, I do love how your writing can surprise you. I am working on a scene where I want to get my MC down to the local bar so he can run into his BF from high school. So on the walk there I find out that there was another guy involved, Iness, and Aidan was the one that cheated on Clark.
Part of my problem was I wasn’t feeling the flaws or the darkside of my MC, he was too nice and just kind of moving through the story. Well one little walk through the woods and man all of that changed.
I find writing is like watching a movie with a really slow internet connection…I slowly get one frame at a time but eventually it is all coming together.
Return to Cooter Crossing is my novel for this year’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNo). Below is a brief working synopsis. For those that are southern impaired, a cooter is a term for water turtles that like to bask on logs in rivers.
Aidan hasn’t had a good year. His lover and supervisor dumped him for a younger guy leaving him without a job or a home. He decides it is time to return home to Cooter Crossing, a small village in the backwater swamps of Florida’s west coast. It has been ten years and he’s not sure what to expect. What he finds is a sister that is pregnant and unwed, his high school lover is now the town drunk with a mobile home full of kids, dirty dealing by a County Commissioner, a deputy sheriff that has romantic intentions and murder.
