NaNoWriMo Start!

 Official NNWM crest from their website.

     Yeeehhhaaaaw. NaNoWriMo has officially started and I'm pumped about it. I know that, technically, working on a project that I've already started might not fully qualify me as a "real" NaNoWriMo-er but I have to see this book through before I begin another. And I'm hoping the push to get 40,000 -50,000 words done this month will be the push I need to cross the finish line and finally be able to type "The End". Ahhh what a glorious moment that will be.

 I'd like to post a few scenes here on this blog from my book so you can see what I'm working on. I'm a bit cautious about this because as it stands there are things that can and will change before the final draft is complete. And I tend to write some in my notebook, the other bits I type up and right now I have a sold beginning, a hesitant ending and a random sprinkling of scenes in between trying to really carve out a solid story. I will take a moment to boast a bit that I do know my writing is quite good. The storytelling however... well, maybe you can be the judge of that. (My husband and sisters think it's good! Does that count?! hehe).

 Anyway, I'm super stoked about this month. Are you taking on the Nano-challenge? Nathan Bransford posted a bunch of awesome links for all your NNWM needs HERE Hmmm NNWM..someone needs to make a bracelet or tee-shirt with that on it. Then start a tumblr or flickr pool where everyone can post pictures of themselves wearing said accessories in various states of writing-induced mania or deprivation. By the end, those pictures would start to look a little hairy. Maybe I will take pictures of myself along the way. I just have to dig out my photo converter to do so. Will  start tomorrow.

Alright..if you're joining up for NNWM sign up HERE and keep me updated! What are you working on? How are you feeling about it?

NaNoWriMo: Day 1: 2,000 words. COMPLETE!
