Hey! Ho! Na-No!

2013-Participant-Twitter-Header

Yes, it’s almost that time again. I’m going to have more time for NaNoWriMo this year than I did in 2012 as I’m working part time, so I’m hoping to write more than 50,000 words, as I did over the summer for Camp NaNo.

I don’t have a plan ready for November, although I have had several novel ideas in my head for a while. Trying to write them before they’re ready would, I suspect, be a disaster, so instead I’m going to write something I’m not too invested in, setting the story in the same world as my Camp NaNo novel, Salt. Even if this novel turns out to be useless or go nowhere, it gives me a chance to explore and pad out that world, which will be useful when I finally come to redraft Salt.

Working title – Greener Grass

Synopsis – In a world where looking to the past is taboo, a historian in exile hires two mercenaries to accompany her on a pilgrimage for knowledge.

As with Camp NaNo, I’ll do weekly updates on my progress on Fridays.

I’ve been so excited about this for a month; I almost don’t care if I don’t get to finish, I’m just so looking forward to going back to the Friday night meet ups (aka support groups), and being in it with everyone else. If you’re doing NaNoWrimo this year, add me up on the website!

As a side note, I’m also really enjoying the ridiculous pixel theme in the graphics this year.
