Just a Nano Post...

It's getting close to that time of the year again, and yes, I will be participating in NanoWriMo once again. For those that don't know what NanoWriMo is, 1: have you been living under a rock, and 2: it's national novel writing month where the goal is to write 50k in one month. I absolutely love Nano because it helps me get motivated and push myself to achieve my deadlines.

This year was definitely hard with deciding what novel to write (I have so many that really need to be written), but since I need to start a novel from scratch, and most of my other novels I've gotten a little bit complete, I've decided to go with a YA superhero story about a world full of 'adult' heroes and villains and one teenager who decides to challenge authority by giving teenagers powers. It will be told from dual perspectives of twins, Jett and Jace who end up with powers and it will technically be their origin story.

As I sat down to plot it yesterday I realised that a superhero story definitely is going to take a lot of work. There's the entire world I need to create and all the rules for the super powers and backstories for all the characters... oh well, I still have 15 days left until Nano officially begins. I'm really hoping I can achieve it because I already have a cool theme park/rollercoaster battle sequence in mind for one of the hero/villain fights and I'm looking forward to writing it.

Are you doing Nano? If yes, have you decided what you're writing?

I can't do it. Can't write to that sort of pressure!

Oo, sounds like a great idea! You can do it! I'm going to be doing NaNo and I'm attempting a YA Sci-Fi, my first science fiction. Good luck! :)
