NaNoWriMo Eve

As my novel is currently being edited by professionals (professional winos), I'm considering starting a new one in November.

Which is tomorrow.

It'd be part of the madness that is National Novel Writing Month. It's 30 days of frantic writing, during which you are supposed to start and finish an entire novel. Which is reeeeeaaaally hilarious, considering the snail's pace at which I normally operate. Although there's one girl who self-publishes what I believe is considered paranormal romance? And she can write a novel in 48 hours? And she's a millionaire. I dunno guys. I just don't know anymore.

Anyway, I figure why not. Sure, write a novel in 30 days! It'll be a best-seller, fo sho.

Now I just need to figure out what in tarnation the book will be about. I considered a sequel to the novel I've already finished, but for reasons pertaining to the need for me to retain my last shred of sanity, that's out. I've thought about science fiction, seeing as how I've been reading and loving tons of that lately. We'll see. What I ought to write is the dirty version of The Hunger Games, like EL James did with Twilight. She's a gajillionaire now. Katniss as a dominatrix? Done and done.

Have you ever participated in NaNoWriMo? What would you write a novel about?


  1. DO IT. Who cares what it's about, just do it! Just writing will get your creative juices flowing. Go!

  2. I was a finisher in 2007. Yay-uh!

    I can't tell you what the novel was about though. It was totally unreadable.

    That said, check out the book "No plot? No problem!" It was a big motivator for me.

    ALSO who is editing your book? Huh? Details!

    1. Oh blergh. Winos! I chickened out on getting the group to edit it. Maybe I could just email it to you? Even though then you would know I am The Worst. Well, maybe you already know.

    2. That group is dead. But my poetry group is going strong, and I have a lead on another fiction group.

      And I don't believe you're The Worst. Not even for a second. So, yes, I want to read. And you'll have to tell me how you want me to respond. As in, do you want criticism? Just positive feedback?

  3. You should totally do the Racy Hunger Games menage a tois version. And I can't spell.

    1. awww dayum. Who needs to choose between Gale and Peeta when you can have BOTH!
