Just under three weeks to go till NaNoWriMo! Unfortunately, no matter how much coffee I consume, not a single plot bunny is stirring. OK, for those of you who are scratching your head wondering what this strange acronym is and why I'm making odd references to furry rodentia...check out this website:

http://www.nanowrimo.org/

I would highly encourage anyone that's every had a even a glimmer of an idea of a story to take this opportunity and turn that idea into the novel you've always wanted to write (if you're honest with yourself, you know you've always wanted to pour your heart out into that tome). Yes you can do this!!! Last year I had no idea what I was going to write about on Oct 31. But on Nov. 1, I just started pounding away at the keyboard. I ended up with a complete story arc that was 50,035 words and a major sense of accomplishment.

Now that you've heard my NaNoWriMo plug, back to the slumbering plot bunnies...

At times like these when the cute little bunnies are comatose, I just keep writing. I keep writing even if it's not working on the novel. That's why I created this blog. Partly as a way to keep the creative juices flowing during NaNoWriMo, partly to share writing tips and epiphanies I come across in the process, and partly to promote my writing. So check back in with me as I take another ride on the NaNoWriMo roller coaster!

    Good luck with cookin up a plot.


  2. Getting revved up for next month! A good idea, blogging to keep the juices flowing. I tried doing some programming yesterday for the very same reason. Good luck with Nanowrimo!


  3. Good luck! I am going to try to do it... as long as my characters are cool with interspersed history papers. I can have a history major who just throws down a paper every now and then, right? And why wouldn't it be printed in full in the story?

    Yeah, it's going to be a long month.
