I was over at the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) website yesterday, gearing up for this year's challenge and trying to decide what I'll write. Romance, mystery, paranormal, suspense/psychological thriller, young adult. I love them all. Currently, I'm leaning toward mystery or paranormal. I guess all of this Halloween spirit has me in that kind of mood.
While I was looking around, geeking out on all the wonderful writerly advice and other fun stuff, I wondered if I was too early. Too eager. Too ready to fall flat on my face (as usual). But then I received an email from one of the three Municipal Liaisons for DFW, and decided it's never too early. It gives me time to figure out where I'm going before I get there.
This will be my sixth year to participate. Of those six years, I've won once. Yeah, I know, and every year I think it's going to be different. Maybe this time it will be. I'll cross that finish line with 50k words. With dedication and heart. And a whole lot of something to work with once November is over.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? If so, what are you writing?
