NaNoWriMo 2019: Completing Watching the Detectives

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series My Writing

Watching the Detectives is the novel I read from in episodes 14 and 28 (embedded below for your listening convenience). I am using this year’s NaNoWriMo to edit and complete it. On day 2, after adding current edits, it stands at 26,520 words. My first goal will be the standard National Novel Writing Month Goal of 50,000 words, and then we shall see. I will be, of course, reading more of it on the podcast as I go along, and I am looking forward to doing so.

You can keep up with my progress here, or at nanowrimo.org. If you are participating as well, feel free to add me as a buddy.

@madisenkuhn I am working on my novel! Printed out chunks and am at the coffee shop after physical therapy. Sometimes the words and characters look different in shape on paper. It’s always been that way for me. As I said, I’ll email you with details, so we can talk about it, but I’ve also read from it in episodes past: look for the two episodes called “Watching the Detectives” and listen to them in order.

Have you ever considered knitting? There’s no corpses in knitting, BeeGee.

As I said in the episode, my novel is inspired by the true crime case of the missing person Maura Murray.

Whisper campaigns are rampant in both Rockingham and Loudon Counties about the possible fate of Beatrice Burchett. Public morale and confidence in the police are threatened at this time, due to silence and perceived lack of investigation.

And still, a twenty-one-year-old is not in class with her peers where she belongs.
