NaNoWriMo 2019: Completing Watching the Detectives

This entry is part 4 of 5 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.

Episode Teaser: She Thrust Her Fists Against the Posts

…and still insists she sees the ghosts.

There Might Be Cupcakes Episode 3 Teaser: my true ghost stories. I have lived in three haunted houses, including my current home. I have had many paranormal experiences in these homes–and elsewhere–with witnesses present. I have even had chilling experiences in two famous American haunted locales: a docked battleship and a tuberculosis hospital. So this will definitely be a two-parter of long episodes–at least. While I write it all down, have fun reading about one of my favorite true haunting, the Borley Rectory (image) at http://www.prairieghosts.com/brectory.html look at the upper left–nothing eerier in my mind than an invisible writer exorting you to attend Mass…(I guess except a an invisible writing warning you not to!) #trypod #podcast #beyourownheroine #carlahufstedler #podcasts #carla #theremightbecupcakes #newpodcast #amwriting #comingsoon #history #horror #newepisode #newpodcasts #podcastpreparation #preparation #England #UK #BorleyRectory #trueghoststories #ghosts #hauntings #paranormal #truestories 👻

Look! No longer "nascent" and no longer vague. My introvert babble is coming by the end of this month! ❤️ to my digital homes @siteground and #blubrrypodcast. I hope you're excited because I am excited. All my years of taking #commonplacebook notes from what I read have come to fruition. Prepare for strange facts, weird angles to #truecrime cases (filtered through my master's in counseling and #INFJ personality), happy rambling about #books and #readinglife, the funny and not-so-much sides to living with #chronicpain, and talking to my spelndiferously creative friends, some of whom you already fanbliss about. Oh, and, as I continue to edit my first novel thanks to #nanowrimocamp2017, I'll even read bits to you. Because it's that good. And cupcakes are for sharing. Setting up newsletter/announcement list this week, so you'll know when the eccentric introduction episode airs. This is not about fame or money, this is about fun, and old and new friends, and leaving stress behind for just a little while so your true self can play. With me. 🎉 🎈🤹🏻‍♀️ #podcast #podcastpreparation #theremightbecupcakes #carla #carlahufstedler #cupcakes #comingsoon #podcasts #newpodcast #newpodcasts #sharing #storytelling #comingsoon2017 #preparation #beyourownheroine
