James Patterson Writing Class Day Two

Lesson 3 and 4 were really quite interesting. Mr. Patterson definitely had some inside pointers of things to do and not do while writing thrillers/mystery/suspense. Though it is catered for those genres, I think most of what he said can be applied to all genres. Well, it's time to work on assignments and write, write, write.

Update on The Turkeys are Coming

I got 3/4 of the first edits of The Turkeys are Coming finished this morning. So awesome!! Well, now to do lesson 2 of the class and work on my new book until I get sleepy.

New Thriller Coming Your Way

203 words written tonight on my potential thriller for the James Patterson contest. Not sure if this is the idea I will stick with for entry, but it's off to a good start.

James Patterson Writing Class

The clock on my day job went by so slowly today. Guess I was just anxious to get home so I could take the first class with James Patterson. I just finished the class and now, I actually have homework to do. I haven't had homework in years. (lol)

Update on The Apocalypse series

Sorry everyone. Working on The Apocalypse series has been put on hold as I take James Patterson's author class and work on my novel to be submitted in the contest. I have to come up with a thriller or mystery specifically to be written for this contest. I have some ideas but cannot use either thriller series I have as some of the installments have been published. I should be returning to my normal stuff around late April beginning of May. Wish me well. The grand prize is to co-author a book with Mr Patterson himself.

Good Morning

Good morning everyone. This morning I will work on the first edits of The Turkeys are Coming. Then after working my day job, I will do lesson two of my James Patterson class and work on the new novel until I get sleepy. Enjoy your day!
