The Surprises of a Novel

IMG_1840Writing the first draft of a novel is like opening the door to someone’s oven to smell fresh baking cookies and not knowing what type they are until the aroma unfolds and touches the sensitive neurons in your brain and makes that electric connection.

For a novel, the questions are more interesting: Who will live and who will I kill off? Will Cele grow to love the dog or take him to the pound? Will Jason take her back or will the judgmental chaplain loosen up and make a bid for her affections?

Anything is possible when you are at the controls. I love the feeling so I’m doing Camp Nanowrimo this April. How about you?

I'm the author of two published books under Daisy Jerico: The Love Thief and Sparks Fly, and three published as Dixie Jo Jarchow. I’ve proofread for the Surgeon General’s office, a physics textbook and a terra cotta textbook. My passion is to write and help others write. Write on! And have a normal life with GDP.
