My Million Words

American writer Henry Miller once said that you must write a million words before you find your voice as a writer. But words alone are not enough. Unless there is passion, writing becoming nothing more than an past-time. My goal as a blogger is to  write a million words and to nurture my passion for writing.  Although I have never been published, I participated in NaNoWriMo in 2009, and met the 50,000 word challenge with a mystery called The Keeper’s Wife. In 2014, I took part in Camp NaNoWriMo by posting 15,000 words toward to working novel. In 2016, my Nano project was a cozy mystery called Deadly Heirlooms. 

I currently participate in two weekly flash fiction challenges: Sunday Photo Fiction (200- word max)  and Friday Fictioneers (100-word max).  I thoroughly enjoy exercising my creative muscles each week, but most of the stories write themselves.

I welcome any and all who would like to join me on this journey and I appreciate constructive feedback. Even if it is just a LIKE.
