…… for the 50,000 words that are NaNoWriMo. My masochistic thanks to Digital Dame for getting me into this creative mess two years ago. I did not “win” that year — only got to 28K words, but it gave me the strength to believe it could be done. Last year I couldn’t do it, but I kept the flame alive and am going to make the attempt for 2011. The NaNo folks say you should tell as many people as possible that you are crazy enough to try to squeeze enough time into each day to write 1,666 words. Like dieting, you’ll feel more accountable for both the misery (and self-righteousness) during the exercise. So I’m letting my half-dozen blog followers know so you can cheer me on or pelt me with virtual produce should I fall short. My own family tries to ignore me in the hopes that I’ll doing something more in line with their own self-interest, but I know they really support anything I do that will keep me off the streets.
I’m feeling a little shy, but I will tell you that my story is about a group of superheros who are hiding in plain sight. These fearless Guardians are always on the look-out for new recruits, and that is where the story begins….. because I haven’t thought any further than that yet.
