cj Sez: I was reviewing some notes I have and the following paragraphs jumped out at me for today’s blog. I think we can agree that novels need a theme, a premise on which to hang the action and plot points. An overall theme continues as a thread through the novel. It lets a writer connect the dots of subplots to the main plot.

As for my story: After years (true) of pecking away at it every time I think of a different direction, I’m re-editing, again, a story that will probably end at about 70 words. Obviously, I am not a candidate for the NaNoWriMo challenge, but I’ve got my fingers crossed that all you writing warriors will carry through to the finish!
