“Fiction Jail”

Last time, I talked about the dogwoods inspiring my current fiction series. Well… I need to let you know that I’m going to spend April in jail.

But not that kind of jail.

No, really… that was research. A tour, not an incarceration. I’ll tell you about it later.

The truth is, the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) people have set aside April for an online “Camp NaNoWriMo,” and I’m going to take advantage of it. Book 1 of the series took me forever to draft. I’m almost halfway through Book 2. My goal is to draft all the remaining major scenes during “Camp.”

This will take plenty of pizza, coffee, and serious focus, so I won’t blog as much this month. Or play WordStreak (ouch! well, not as much as usual). I’ll be in a sort of “Fiction Jail.” A few friends have generously offered guest posts for you, though. And I’ll give you a report at the end. Meanwhile, I’ll come out of my office occasionally for a bike ride.

See you in May!

Thanks for reading…
and for hanging with me!


About Jan C. Johnson

Welcome! If you like food, reading, laughing over life's little disasters, and maybe thinking about the bigger things of life, you have come to the right place. Besides blogging, I write humorous fiction, though real life tends to leave fictional humor in the shade. But I'm not a total goofball. No, really. I'm also working on a biography project. I live in North Texas with my husband, Brent. We enjoy bicycling, Mexican food, and traveling to visit our kids and grandkids.
