NaNoWriMo 2011

Yep, I have decided to do NaNoWriMo again this year. I can't remember if I ever posted about it, but I swore off doing NaNo after epically failing Camp NaNo this summer. As you can see, that decision didn't last long. I just couldn't resist the challenge! I've done NaNo the last three years, and as it drew closer I started feeling weird about my decision to not participate. So, as with many things, I changed my mind.

I'm not really prepared, like at all, but I'm hoping for the best. I'm going to be writing the fantasy story I've been talking about on twitter, which doesn't have a title yet (I'm so bad at coming up with titles). All I'm going to say about it is, it's a fantasy story set in the future with magic and monsters, and so far I really love the world and characters (let's see how I feel about them after I start writing).

So, who else is doing NaNo this year? Is this your first year, or are you a returning wrimo? Have you ever won? Care to share a little bit about your novel? Let me know! If you are participating, good luck! :)

Review - Gone by Michael Grant


In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.
Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened.
Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day.
It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else...

On My Shelf (30)

On My Shelf highlights books I've acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I'm writing, and other blog worthy news. I think it's pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for the feature from, but I will follow blog etiquette and link to Kristi (In My Mailbox @ The Story Siren), Sheila (It's Monday, What Are You Reading? @ Book Journey), and Kate (The Shelf Report @ The Neverending Shelf) anyway. ;)
