Surprise! Actually it’s more of a surprise to me than anyone else, I think. Suddenly it’s here. Again. Doesn’t it just seem like yesterday I was clawing through NaNo for 2016 with my infamous (in my own mind) “Riot of Purple Profanity?” Many of you gave input and encouragement. (Many thanks!) Some of you may have even giggled at the sometimes purple prose. (I did.) I still haven’t reread that book. Like I said, it feels like yesterday in many respects as did the self-induced pressure of posting an installment each day. As you can guess, that isn’t happening this year.
In fact, I still don’t know what I’m going to write. My novel is currently called: The Unnamed Great American Novel. Oh, what aspirations!
I know that there are a few of you out there who are nanoing this year. If you want a commiseration buddy, you can find me as: SaschaDarlington on the nano website. I know that I’ve seen some of you have outlines and all kinds of goodies prepared. (I’m so jealous 😉 .) I will as usual be a pantser.
So good luck to all of you who are participating! Despite my little grumps, I’ve always loved nanowrimo. It’s an incredibly fun challenge.
I’ll provide updates here. Interesting things like if I finally have characters and maybe even a plot and how many cups of coffee I’ve had and whether I used any peppermint mocha creamer and how I’m procrastinating rather than writing something useful. Ah, good times.
On that note, if you are the owner of an idea that is just lying around gathering dust, please jet it my way. (I’m begging you…sob. 😭) No matter how ludicrous, all ideas will be considered for inclusion in this desperate writer’s attempt at creating a novel.
Anyway, Happy Halloween 🎃 👻 🍬! I may go write a scary story now.
