It's November 1st and you know what that means: NanoWriMo

In case you don't know what I'm talking about, November is National Novel Writing Month where authors around the world try to write 50,000 words in the month of November.

Crazy, huh?

Yes, but it's a ton of fun.

My sister told me about it when I was in college. Four years in a row I won. Last year I didn't try because of Nicholas but I'm willing and ready this year. Just have one last chapter to type for the rough draft of Knight of Glory and I'm ready to go.

This year, I'm going to try for two. I might end up just doing one but I figure it can't hurt to set lofty goals.

The first story: From the Brink of Insanity. A woman accidentally kills a child during a game of hide and seek. Her guilt and paranoia causes her to kill again and again.

The second: Magic's Origins. When magic suddenly appears, chaos and war results and four teens must work to gather to save the world.

Wish me luck! And if you're doing Nano this year, good luck and happy writing! Oh, and add me as a writing buddy: Scarlett9284

Good luck with NaNoWriMo! I'm starting today to. I'm on Chapter 4 of Woman of Honor and loving it! It will be a nice break from my writing each day this month!

Good luck, hope it's going well! This is year 3 for me... not quite connecting with my MC this time around, but I'm sure we'll meet in the middle sooner or later. For now, I'll just have to let her direct things the way she wants... :)
