Yup, I've done it now...

I have signed up, re-activated my account, logged into the forums, talked to my peeps in the 'burg, and we're all jazzed, ready to write. National Novel Writing Month. Sorry, honey, you're about to become a writing widower again... I promise, it's only once a year... :-)

I don't even know what the hell I'm going to write this year. The story I wrote last year had been rattling around in my head for 15 years. This year, I plan to write its sequel/prequel, whatever, the second in the series. After a year of thinking about the last book, I've decided this would make a pretty good series of young adult books, so that's what I'm aiming for.

Last year's book is still titleless, there's a whole file on my computer marked "put this in somewhere!" of things I moved around when I re-wrote the whole beginning of the novel, stuff I really liked but felt it needed to be moved or included elsewhere, but I don't know where...

So, my goal is to get that squared away, a title selected, and Maggie put to rest as I work on Frankie's story. Yikes.

I honestly cannot believe I'm doing this again.

Oh, you brave, brave woman.

I was wondering if you were going to try and repeat last year's success. I give you much props, especially considering with all the traveling you'll be doing in November. I gave up last year, and haven't decided if I want to try again this year.

Good luck!
