Well, that's it. I made up my mind.
I'm doing my first ever NaNoWriMo this year!
*Gasps echo across all of blogspot.*
How can I describe the feelings bubbling in my stomach? Excitement's one of them. But then there's also stress (already!), some fear and a whole lot of "Whooooaaaaa, will I be able to pull this off?".
Of course I will, if I set my mind to it! You see, although I might look tough on the outside, inside I'm just another one of those deranged optimists--the type that sits at a funeral thinking "Well, at least we got the family together."
With my first novel almost ready for a professional editor to gnaw it to pieces, what are my plans for NaNo? To write the sequel, of course!
For once in my life, I actually have a title for the story before I begin writing it: Making Time. I couldn't be happier! Okay, okay, I hear you. I might have cheated... just a little. Making Time was the original title for my first novel, which is now called Serving Time. You can learn how I decided to swap names on this blog post: Choosing a Title: Make it, Serve it, Screw it.
I don't want to give away too many details, but Making Time involves a whole lot of demon-on-demon action, a whole lot of searching through uncharted realms, and not one--not two--but three additions to the family.
Are you participating in the madness? What is your project about? If you're a deranged optimist like me, look for me on the official NaNoWriMo page or on Critique Circle. My name's easy to spot.
Happy writing, everyone!
