What with awesome trips and birthday bashes, I found myself about 7,000 words behind schedule on the NaNoWriMo project. That might not be insurmountable, but I’m chalking it up as such. Maybe they’ll move NaNoWriMo to a different month. One where we don’t have two birthdays and a major holiday. I think March would work.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to try NaNoWriMo again this year. I’ve been working on coming up with a plot. Which you could* read to mean I’ve been googling things like “mystery plots” and “Romance novel generator.” While I probably won’t** be writing “The Indian NASCAR Driver’s Bemused Captive” any time soon, I did find the classic 12-chapter mystery plot outline pretty intriguing. Now I just need a captivating detective, a villainous villain and some criminal misdeeds.
Whatever I end up with, I’m 97% certain that Hall and Oates will play a major role.
p.s. A laugh at Dan Brown’s expense.
*Because that would be entirely accurate.
**Or will I?!? Stay tuned.
