The Joy of Text — One Million Project blog by John Nedwill

There is something so comforting about putting a pen to paper and allowing the words to spill out onto the page.  I’m reminded of a scene in the movie, Becoming Jane, about Jane Austen.  In one scene, Jane is feverishly writing and scratching out her latest literary creation with ink-stained fingers.  You could feel her passion for her work flowing from her fingertips onto the page.

John Nedwill writes in his blog about his process of writing. Hope you enjoy!

Kate’s Causes…

As many of you know, I’ve written several blogs on homelessness and the One Million Project’s commitment to raise money for EMMAUS.  Another event has caught my attention thanks to Dr. Sheena Macleod, Emma Short and Emma Park.  The “Emma’s” will be attending the Sleep in the Park event in Edinburgh,  Scotland on Dec. 9, 2017.

Check out the blog on the One Million Project website for more information about how they hope to eradicate homelessness in Scotland.

I have a GIF for that…

I posted my blog on the #OneMillionProject blog in response to all of the GIF messages and emoticon ridden messages I receive.  I mean they are cute and funny.  I use them.  But it got me to thinking about social media and how it drives our culture.

Update on My Works in Progress

This summer has been super busy for me, and I haven’t made as much progress as I’d planned and hoped on my current WIP’s–Never Show Your Hand (Clare Thibodeaux Series, Book 3) and Not Mama’s Little Girl, Anymore!

I have completed a short story for the upcoming three-volume One Million Project short story anthology for charity.  I will continue to update you about when the books will be released.  It is scheduled in the November to December 2017 time frame right now.  They will be published by Dark Ink Press and will be available on Amazon.com.

Never Show Your Hand is approximately 11,000 words and I am working on Chapter Eight of the book.  It has been more of a challenge for me because I am writing it from more perspectives than just Clare Thibodeaux’s.  I wanted to offer an inside look at what the other main characters (Wyatt, Lee, and Shanaya) are feeling.

Writing from Clare’s point of view is fairly easy because I’ve been in her head for the past two years.  Although I’ve been aware of the motivations of the other characters, it is a challenge to jump into their characters and bring their inner dialogues to the forefront.  I think it’s turning out to be an exciting story with intrigue, hidden agendas, romance and those darn plot twists I love so much.

Not Mama’s Little Girl, Anymore! is a story about Natalie Parker.  She’s a Southern girl with a bit of sass that she uses to hide a hearty dose of personal insecurity.  Natalie has been featured in several of my short stories.  Another writer suggested she might make for a good full-length book, so I’ve been working on her story as well.

I am weaving her short stories into a larger story in the ChickLit genre.  I am 10,000 words into the book at this time.  I will include a preview of the first chapter under the “Kate’s Books” tab.   Bite-Sized Stories V. 2 is published on Amazon and includes the Natalie short story, “Mucking Around”.  The new OMP anthology I mentioned earlier will include another Natalie short story entitled “Not Mama’s Little Girl”.

Thanks for reading!  I’ll get busy writing!!
