NaNoWriMo 2015: Day 20

20 Nov

A day off from the day job, the first of ten days off for Thanksgiving. I expect to make some serious headway on the book in this time span. Actually, the fact that I return to the office on 30 November, I aim to be done with the book ahead of that day. It’ll be nice to return to the office with the novel completed.

The book I’m writing takes place in Houston, 1940. Some of the scenes take place at Bayou Bend which is now a museum. I went there today and talked with a librarian and got some books to use for research. I’ll be returning to tour the entire property next week so I can infuse this book with some accurate historical details. There are benefits to writing a historical mystery.
