Thought you Junkies would like to see the beginning of the next Sigler novel, THE STARTER. That's right, the time has come to pen a sequel to THE ROOKIE. I'll keep you updated on the word-count progress. Time to roll up the sleeves and put in the wrench time to make another knockout book for all y'all.

The screenshot you see here is my "new project" window from Scrivener, a program I use to write my books.

THE STARTER is my entry for National Novel Writing Month (also known as "NaNoWriMo"). To win NaNoWriMo, you have to write 50,000 words in the month of November.

Ha!

I was wondering if you were going to link the starter into NaNo!  I feel almost giddy.  I feel as though I am in august company now...  Do you have a NaNoWriMo page?  I didn't see one registered. 

Well, I shall feel honored to know that as I 'slave away' at my novel, you are working hard on The Starter.  May you have much success my friend, and if you get really bored, come to Minnesota for a write-in...  Or I'll come out there for one.

Scott Sigler is doing NaNoWriMo right along with myself and so many other junkies. I am absolutely thrilled. Hooray for NaNo, and for more of the GFL!

Aw Hell Yeah!

Scrivener's awesome for writing -- I use it too. Definitely worth the costs.

Though now this has me wondering whatever the FDO's wallpaper might be... hmm...

On Edited

I am glad you have started the Starter...

It is like a Giant Baby is being born..right in front of us...Here's  to a great new novel FDO... I raise the glass and drink to you... and all others slaving away creating strange and unusual prose.

Jealous and Sad

Because Scrivener sounds like a great tool and is NOT and NEVER will be available for Windows. Le sigh

Massive Massive excitement

Really looking forward to this Scott. Writing a book in a month is a great idea too. I think lots of people will jump for the concept.

In other news - finally scored a copy of Earthcore - in English from the internet. Bookshelf is content. Lent it out to a friend to spread the love. If it comes back marked I will send you his skin as an offering.

OMG!

That has to be one of the most beautiful dialog boxes I think I've ever seen! My 3 boys, ages 9, 11, and 13, can't wait for The Starter. I've read every Sigler book on the market to them (so I can edit the bad words - both of them - from the text as I read it.) I should have known better than to start reading Sigler books to them at such a young age, but they are hardcore junkies now!! WOOHOO!!!

I hate football

(Sorry, I'm a hockey fan)But I have to admit that The Rookie was fucking awsome!

I'm eagerly awaiting The Starter and have even secretly watched a game or two in anticipation.

Start 'em young ...

That's what it's all about, corrupt ... er ... convert their minds at an early age.

Too...

Excited....For...Words...

You love it, you KNOW you love it ...

And you want more. Take it, Junkie, take it!

I loves me some Krakens

I loves me some Krakens football and I loves me some Scrivener (I've forgotten how to write without it).
On Edited

Agreed

Not really sure I could write a novel without it anymore. Scrivener has totally become a part of the writing process for me.

The Starter

There are many writers taking part in this. I am glad that you are writing the sequel. I hope it goes well and we will definitely be checking up on your progress during the month. Good luck in the contest.

Agreed +1

Scrivener is the best writing application out there. I almost feel sorry for people stuck in Windows...

 

I did say almost

I wore my Kraken's shirt to work today too....
