Nanowrimo 2010!

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!  I just completed my registration for National Novel Writing Month and I AM PUMPED!!!

The actual event doesn't begin until November 1st, but I'm taking a page from the Boy Scouts and am going into it prepared.  Last year I practiced the art of "fly by the seat of thy pants", which turned out pretty well, at least in terms of actually finishing a novel.  Whether that novel was actually readable is another matter altogether.  To be honest, I finished it and never picked it up again.  It may not be that bad, but I'm too scared to even peek.  That's why this year I am practicing the art of "having a plan a, b, and possibly even c". 

I haven't really thought about what I am going to write about, but I have several plot ideas that I've been hording on my hard drive (my mother would be so proud) that I am going to look through.  One or two of them I actually started to map out earlier in the year before The Worst Summer Ever occurred.  Whatever plot I decide to choose, it has to be something that I don't mind thinking, eating, drinking, sleeping, and breathing over for 30 days.

Drama. Intrigue. Anticipation.  Long nights and early mornings.  Laughter, crazed or otherwise.  400+ cups of coffee or black tea.  Equity screams. 30 days.  50,000 words. One novel.
