Happy Halloween and Nanowrimo
Hopefully, everyone is getting in the scary fun swing of things. I'm going as a zombie this year- so original, I know. But it just feels wrong to be anything else when I am writing a zombie apocalypse romance. My characters would feel betrayed. Wait, did I just type that out loud?
Huffingtonpost.com has a great 'zombies' link today http://www.huffingtonpost.com/culture/ . It's actually just the culture section but on the homepage it says zombies with blood dripping. Way to get in the season! And they have lots of cute zombie written articles. How can one not love it??
Okay, so, yeah, writing, um, I'm supposed to be doing that, right? Well, as of tomorrow, Nanowrimo begins and my output had best explode or my head very well might. I have put up a nanowrimo word count graphic so y'all can keep me accountable. Kick my butt if I'm not performing. Give me a lashing. I will have deserved it if I get behind. I will say 'thank you may I have another' if said lashing event does occur.
I will be writing and finishing- Yeah, that's right, I said it!- finishing Empty. I am not sure that will get me all the way to 50k words tho, so I might write some other stuff that I have been working on for my other pen name to fill out the wordcount. Or I can start on the Empty sequel. I have part of it mapped out but it still needs some tinkering. And I figure I better wait till I have the Empty manuscript written anyway in case a few surprises spring out of me as my fingers are flying.
As I mentioned on twitter, I will be using Scrivener- I am pretty much sold on this program. The digital notecards on the cork board feature alone got me. But being about to rearrange by drag and drop instead of lots of cut and paste. That is pretty sweet.
Well, that's all I got. I hope everyone has a scary time tonight. Protect your brains!
