Hi, all! And happy Monday!
You may be wondering why hell would be freezing over at the moment.
That's because I have signed up for NaNoWriMo this year.
Usually, I'm on the sidelines, cheering everybody on and silently thanking God that I'm not doing that kind of writing. However, I need to get some work done and I thought I would give it a try, since the timing is good right now.
So away I go.
Right now, I'm plotting. And plotting. I want to have somewhat of a road map before I begin.
I'm very nervous because I'm normally a very slow writer. But maybe I need a good kick in the pants.
If you're doing NaNo, please buddy me and hold my hand!!
In other news, I have news... that I hope to be able to share soon.
I know. What a tease, right?
And in other news news, because of NaNo, I WILL NOT be blogging until after Thanksgiving. I know boo-hoo. A lot of you are still able to keep up with the blog writing, but I'm not sure what I'm in for, so I figure it would be a good not to stretch myself too thin.
One last thing I have to share. I recently took a writing seminar about tropes and category writing. It was really good but one thing stuck with me and that is this:
Category romance is one big cliché. They are all the same. HOWEVER, what makes one better than another is when the author CREATES SCENES AND CHARACTERS THAT ARE MEMORABLE.
I think that's really true. How many marriage of convenience stories are there out there? TONS. But some are more special than others.
Anyhew, I'll leave you with all that and see you after Turkey Day!!
Are you doing NaNo? Buddy me!
Have you ever done NaNo before? How did it go?
