As my rabid fans may recall, I completed my first full-length novel manuscript back in 2011 as part of the 3 Day Novel Contest. That manuscript ultimately turned into Ninjas of the 512: A Texas-Sized Satire, my first book.
I also wrote a nonfiction guide to writing a novel in 3 days called Confessions of a 3-Day Novelist: How to Write an Entire Book in Just 72 Hours, based on my experience, in order to help other would-be 3 Day Novelists find their writing groove.
So it’s now 2015, and guess what? I’m up for the challenge once more.
The 3 Day Novel Contest takes place from September 5 to 7 this year (it’s always over Labor Day Weekend), and I’m ready!
I’ve got a working title: Prime Time.
I’ve got a plot: A couple joins a reality TV show as part of a social experiment… in murder!
I’ve got an outline in Scrivener.
I’ve got a cover mock-up:
I’ve got a Pinterest board dedicated to characters and assorted inspirations.
And I’ve even set up an Inkshares project, so you can follow along with my progress as I write this story. As of today, you can pre-order a copy of the book – before it’s even written!
Want to learn more about Prime Time? Join me on Twitter @originaloflaura from September 5th to 7th as I toss out random one-liners as I write, share my struggles in meeting my daily word counts, and interact with my fellow 3 Day Novelists in real time.
