NaNoWriMo Day 3: My Character is Really Talking to Me

Okay so this morning Mackenzie is taking this opportunity to take the bull by the horns and seize the moment to really prove herself to her editor.  She’s starting to act more like a police detective than just an Investigative reporter.  She’s conducting interviews and canvassing neighborhoods and even flirting with the lead homicide detective on the case to gain as much information out of him as she can get.  She’s even convinced him to let her look at the autopsy report and crime scene photos, of which she made copies of for her own use.  

But Mackenzie is having a hard time keeping her personal issues surrounding this case from affecting her.  She got the story because she dated the Ex-congressman and her editor thought it might be easier for her to get the personal details no other reporter could probably get.  But now her career rests on a man who she had never wanted to see again.  Now she has to relive those moments with him that she was trying to forget for all these years.  Working on this story could have damaging psychological effects that she is not prepared to deal with yet.  

Okay Mackenzie is having another one of her episodes again so I have to go deal with her for a little while.  I might have more to tell you guys tomorrow.  Happy writing everyone!

NaNoWriMo Day 2: Sharing Time

So 2 days in a row I managed to wake up early to write.  If I keep this up I won’t have any excuses when NaNoWriMo is over as to why I can’t do this all the time.  I must admit that this morning I actually did contemplate hitting the snooze button but I resisted that urge and got up and headed straight for my computer.  Mackenzie was ready for me to get back to telling her story.  Before I start clueing you in about all of the personal details about Mackenzie I’ll share with you a condensed version of the synopsis.  

Mackenzie Brown wants to break into Investigative reporting for the BaltimoreTimes but can’t get her editor to give her the break that she needs to prove what an asset she can be.  But when her former college boyfriend, Ex-congressman Andrew Litney is brutally murdered behind the alley of a strip club the opportunity to prove her worth presents itself.  But that opportunity comes with immeasurable consequences as it stirs up things from her past that she has tried her best to keep buried.  As she digs further and further into the Ex-congressman’s past indiscretions in an effort to discover the person that murdered him, she not only finds everything hitting closer to home then she ever thought it would, but she also uncovers things about herself that might have never been brought to light.  Can Mackenzie keep her personal baggage from interfering with the story that could give her journalism career the boost that it desperately needs? 

Okay that’s all I can give up right now.  Don’t want to tell you everything all at once.  I guess you guys are just going to stay tuned in to find out what personal secrets Mackenzie might be keeping hidden, or more importantly, what secrets about her past that are being kept hidden from her.  Until next time…Keep writing and don’t stop!
