My Camp NaNoWriMo experience

Hello everybody,
I kept you updated about my NaNoWriMo experience, and my WIP, but I did not tell you about my camp NaNoWriMo experience. Well, I do want to say that camp NaNoWriMo was a bit slower paced than the writing I Did for NaNoWriMo. I personally worked on two projects, even though you can only put in the WIP for one particular project.

My Main Project

The first project I worked on and updated my word count for was a novel called A Journey of Faith: The Chosen Path, Book 1. This is the first book of my Chosen path series that I started writing ideas for last year.
Let me tell you a little about the inspiration behind this novel. After my divorce, and even after I came back to live with my parents, I had dreams about climbing. I started reading books about mountain climbing, beginning with Savage Summit, a book about five women who climbed Mount K2, and either died while climbing this mountain, or died climbing other mountains such as Everest.
Late last year, I had an idea that was given to me by the Holy Spirit to write such a novel. Little did I know until I spoke to my brother’s friend about the book, that I didn’t have a real reason for Becca Martin’s journey. This is the reason I started rewriting this book, because as Jim and I talked, I discovered that there was something missing in my book and it was going in all different directions. The ideas came to me, and I was rewriting parts of my book well into the night. That’s why I can say on my twitter feed that my best writing happens after midnight.I’ll explain more about how I was inspired to create such characters, and you can also get some of this information from my recent character interviews I posted here. I will tell you though, that my novel was originally over 100k words, and now it’s down to 62k or so.

My Secondary Project

On the side, I started working on a book called Embracing the Healing Power of Music: Seven Steps for finding your way out of the Darkness and into the Light, with God’s Gift of Song. I started this project a couple of years ago, because I personally found Music to be a God Given source of healing after I was emotionally abused by my ex-husband and his family.
When I told a friend about this idea, she told me that it would take years for me to write this book because I would have to become a music therapist first. Little did I know, that I had the expertise through my own experience, and education from the school of life, and my extensive research, until I participated in a teleseminar hosted by global visibility expert Nikki Woods, called Write Your Way to Success. After the seminar, I woke up feeling overwhelmed and inspired to write this book.

Call to Action

Here’s what I need you all to do after reading about my experiences. If you have any experience with finding music as a source of healing, and you want to share your story, please leave a comment or email me at annwrites75@gmail.com.
I could also use your help to get these books published, all you have to do at the moment is vote for A Journey of Faith at tinyurl.com/qe2wwtf and Embracing the Healing Power of Music at tinyurl.of6popv.
Thanks for sticking with me throughout this long post, but I thought I’d share with you a little about the projects I’m working on and what inspired me to write them around camp NaNoWriMo.

An inspiration for a new book idea

Hello everyone,

I have some good news. Thanks to Nikki Woods and her Write Your Way to Success training seminar, I have been inspired to pick up an idea for a book that I scrapped a couple of years ago, because I didn’t think I had the qualifications to write this book. Now, I about to embark upon a journey that will touch the lives of people around the world.

My book will be about music as a source of healing. I will implement my blog posts about music into this book, while sharing my personal story of how music was a source of healing after my divorce. If you would like me to share your story about how you found healing through God’s gift of music, please let me know by commenting here, or you can email me at annwrites75@gmail.com
