Some of you love NaNoWriMo, some of you hate it, and the rest are probably wondering what the heck NaNoWriMo is. It's very simple: you have 30 days to write 50,000 words of a new novel. Succeed and you're a winner, and can bask in the glory of victory. Fail, and the world will end and zombies will devour us all. I always knew it was writers who would bring the zombies...
Okay, not so much. You don't "win" anything other than the satisfaction of having accomplished your writing goal. And yes, when you're an author technically every month is NaNoWriMo. I'm always working on something new, but NaNo is unique. It was where I first learned that I could do this. I could write a novel. Blood, Smoke and Mirrors was born from my first NaNoWriMo experience, and NaNo will always have a special place in my heart.
I have three published NaNo novels:
- 2006 NaNo: Blood, Smoke and Mirrors
- 2010 NaNo: Bewitched, Blooded and Bewildered
- 2011 NaNo: Poison in the Blood
So. Who else is answering the NaNo call this year?
