Just kidding?

Hah. So remember how JUST YESTERDAY I posted about how I wasn't signing up for NaNoWriMo this year?

Well, tonight I came up with a really awesome idea. And I sat down and outlined, like, the first third of the novel. And, well, yeah. I signed up again this year.

I'm trying to tell myself that it's okay if I fail this time around (and never fear, Cybils panel - Cybils reading definitely comes first!). I just know that I can't let this idea sit. And November was going to be so strange without a word count...

So. Let the countdown begin!


  1. Abby, just curious, are you like me and you write books, but never try to sell them? Or have you gone that route, too?

  2. Catherine, the only books I've written have been completely ridiculously terrible books for National Novel Writing Month. ;) I've considered that somewhere down the line I might actually write a book I'd want to try to sell, but (at the current moment) have no real plans to do so. :)

  3. Yay! I'm doing it too. :)

    I've got a first sentence but I'm not going to try outlining it. I probably should, but I'm still trying to get past 5000 words on REwriting last year's NaNo novel...

  4. So glad to see that you've decided to join in on the Nano fun - and I love that the idea came to you out of the blue like that. The best ideas always do!
