I suppose that one of these days I should sit down and figure out what my blog is really all about. I don’t seem to have a theme but do I really need one? If I were going to convert my blog someday into book format sometime in the future, than yes, I would need a theme or a common thread. I started thinking about this because I am about 3/4’s finished with my novel and before we know it, November will be here with Thanksgiving and nanowriting month and where am I going to find the energy to produce 50,000 more words. I immediately latched onto my blog, I have been writing faithfully everyday since Dec. 30th 2010 so I have a lot of words saved up, if I could put them together, I bet there are 50,000 in sum. Am I being lazy? I don’t know. I do know that my present novel is writing itself and by that I mean, I have an outline but my character likes to talk a lot and describe food a lot, so I write and write. I still have to throw her out of France and get her to the States but she is having a picnic with her lover on the roadside and they are presently lounging on the ground digesting their first class picnic complete with a bottle of Cote du Rhone. Get thee to N.Y. young Madeleine!
One of these days I am going to go through my past writings to see is I can thread them together into a word quilt if you will and see where that leads me, November is coming and I don’t know if I have the intestinal fortitude for another novel. I do have stories. I don’t know if I have a sequel to Madeleine, but you never know. I’ll figure something out.
