Countdown to NaNoWriMo!

2013-Participant-Square-Button It’s October so the countdown to NaNoWriMo has officially begun!  The NaNoWriMo website has been revamped, the new web badges are out, and people are flooding  back to the WriMo forums.

This year, I will be writing a contemporary sci-fi romance novel called “Sweet Justice”.  I’ve had the idea for a while now and I’ve been working on outlining it mentally for over a year.  Now, I’m working on outlining in a more fixed form, I’ve got myself a bullet point list of events.  Start to finish.  I feel all organized…

Since I’ve been writing nothing but fantasy romance, I decided to mix things up a bit with modern day super heroes, arch villains, and a damsel capable of fending for herself.  No distress here.  Should be fun to see my heroine struggle between THREE love interests!  Mwa ha ha!

And behold, I have written a blurb!

Between secretly spying on her employer, heavy office flirtations with the mail clerk, and an unhealthy obsession with super hero news, Justice thought that things were finally going her way. As the ChemPharm research facility exploded and demolished months of undercover work, Justice took some comfort in the arms of Ultraman as he whisked her away from the blast.

When a drunken midnight calling card meant for Ultraman attracted Blaze instead, Justice has the chance to tell off the lab saboteur. Only instead of searing jibes and insults, sparks start to fly between Blaze and Justice and his abrupt departure leaves her confused and angry.

Will Justice be able to pick up the pieces of her destroyed project? Will Justice have to choose between the super hero and his arch nemesis? And what about the mail clerk who fills out his dress shirts just right?

Unproductive

So, I had the day off unexpectedly and made use of my time by not doing anything productive. Sure, I slept in, did some laundry, dishes, did my workout, and took out the trash but none of that is writing. The best I can say I did along those lines is get Scrivener open, updated, and the 10 minute intro video watched. That’s all I got done.

I think I was distracted by how cluttered my office was so I did tidy that up. I moved 2 large totes of yarn down into my basement! I got some print outs in binders. Things were thrown out. Hmm. Maybe tomorrow I can get some writing done. I have this idea for a short story that I want to get written. It will be a great intro to the realm I’ve created and the characters from my first three novels. More on that later though.

TGIF!
