I think I’ve talked a little bit about my plans for Once a Stratton – I’m never very tight-lipped with y’all! – but I’ve never gone into detail about what to expect in the next couple months and years.
So … today I’d like to write a post briefly explaining my plans and goals for the novel. And I know I’ve talked about this project a lot (well, one blog post‘s worth!), but I’m super excited about it! And when I’m excited, I ramble! (To state the obvious, hehe.)
I’ll also be asking for beta/alpha readers soon (kinda combining them this time around because I need speed!), so that’s exciting! But for now, let’s talk about my plans!

When you read that title, you probably rolled your eyes a little. “Oh, no, now she’s doing boring ol’ history posts. Reveries is going to the dogs. Time to unsubscribe …”
Well, stop right there. No unsubscribing is allowed. First, you’re going to enjoy this post. Second, if ‘first’ proves untrue, you should know that I probably won’t be making a lot of posts like this because I never research … so ….
Okay, I’m kidding. I do research sometimes. Just … less than I should.

This may be crazy, but I’ve decided to try to write 15,000 words in April for Camp NaNoWriMo. My project is Once a Stratton, a historical fiction novel set in the 1850s (1855-1858).
What is Camp NaNoWriMo? Well, if you’ve been following me long, you know what NaNoWriMo is (if not, it’s a basically a writing challenge). Camp NaNoWriMo is a much more relaxed version of NaNoWriMo. I can answer any questions about it in the comments.
Anyway, my goal is to write 15,000 words in April. But wait, you say. What’s Once a Stratton about? Well, I anticipated that question, so you can now find a summary (and my awful WIP cover) on the Works-in-Progress page.
I also started a Pinterest board for Once a Stratton, which I’m slowly adding to. (I’m working a lot on my Pinterest boards just now, actually … I’m trying to get all my information sorted!)
Thanks for reading,
- Are you participating in Camp NaNo? If so, would you like to join my cabin? Comment with your Camp NaNo username, and I’ll invite you!
- What do you think of Once a Stratton? Does it sound like a good book?
- Have you read any good books set in the Antebellum South? Let me know about them, because I can’t find a single historical novel set in that era!
Hi guys! Can you believe it’s time for another Beautiful People? I know I say this every month, but wow. Time flies. It really does.
This month I’m interviewing a character from the novel I’ll be working on during April, Once a Stratton. Her name is Lilli Strauss, and she’s the main character of the aforementioned story. I believe you’ve heard of Lilli before. If not, there’s no time like the present to meet her. 😉
Before we dig into the questions, take a look around you (assuming you’re viewing this post on my blog). Notice anything … different? *flips hair*
(I’m not sure why I felt a need to flip my hair. It was an impulse. It must make sense, right? Or are my impulses really that random? Your thoughts?)
