Grete’s got four copies of J. R. Ward’s Lover Avenged (part of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series) to give away over at BookThing – you can check out the post here and what you need to do, to get a copy (not much, just comment on the site!)
Took the one paragraph plot overview I had and expanded it into around a page (three acts, each act in two sections), and given names at least to 9 characters. That’ll do. I’ll wait until the 1st November now and then just start ploughing through it.
Check me out here when things get going.
I’m telling you this, because the advice from NaNoWriMo is, and I quote,
3) Tell everyone you know that you’re writing a novel in November. This will pay big dividends in Week Two, when the only thing keeping you from quitting is the fear of looking pathetic in front of all the people who’ve had to hear about your novel for the past month. Seriously. Email them now about your awesome new book. The looming specter of personal humiliation is a very reliable muse.
See you in December, and we’ll see if I look pathetic or elated.
If you don’t hear anything from me in November, this is why. Assuming an even word-count-per-day that’s 1667 words per day.
And it’s Leigh’s fault.
