April, Wattpad and The End Of Downton Abbey

I’m very excited for the next NaNoWriMo session that starts this coming Wednesday! I’ll write further on a story I actually began two years ago, in another NaNoWriMo session, which I’ve been outlining this week. My word count goal is a reasonable 25,000 words, not nearly enough to finish the storyline but certainly more than adequate to give me a good push in the right direction. 

Another project I have begun, thanks to my writer friend Guy Sigley, is the publication of a very early WIP on Wattpad. Reading Guy’s hilarious satire, The Chronicles of Barnia, centered around a socially awkward man and his adventures in daily life, has opened my eyes to the possibilities of gaining exposure on Wattpad. Please check out Guy’s story at http://www.wattpad.com/user/GuySigley and mine at http://www.wattpad.com/user/ElizabethConrad810. My story is called The Lonesome Road, centered around three jazz musicians in the 1940s onward. 

In other news, I read this morning that Downton Abbey will indeed end after series six. This saddens me as much as any other Downton fan. I will miss it tremendously, but am thankful that I own all of the DVDs and iTunes downloads. In my house, Downton will be alive forever! I do appreciate that the writers have promised to wrap up storylines and show us where the characters are past the end of the series. If given a choice between seeing the show struggle along for ten more years with beloved cast members and characters leaving one by one and a complete, satisfying ending, I’d rather see it end with closure. I hope the rumors of a post series movie becomes reality!

    • That’s neat! I’ve seen an episode of Mr. Selfridge and it looks quite good. For me, though, nothing is Downton Abbey! I have all the DVDs and iTunes episodes, so it will never be over for me. 🙂
