I'm sure most of you know what NaNoWriMo is. For those of you that don't, I will give you a quick run down. The idea is start with a new story on November 1st, and write your novel by the end of the month. The minimum requirement is 50,000 words.
For my NaNo novel, I didn't exactly start out with a fresh new idea. It's more of an old story idea that I stripped down to its' undies and started over with. So in this round about way, it's still a new fresh idea. (At least that's what I'm telling myself so everyone just go with it.)
While I love reading Young Adult, I cannot write it to save my life. I've tried many times, but it just doesn't work for me. A lot of my stories are about girls, like me, who are in their early twenties. We'll go with the genre of Women's Fiction for now.
Here is my awesome cover art my muse and blogging partner, Cheryl, made for me. Along with my very weak attempt at writing a synopsis.
The Unexpected Clash of Strangers
Everything in Grace's life was going great. At least, semi-great until the day she finds herself caught in a random winter storm wearing a red sequin flapper dress and reeking of tequila. If matters couldn't be worse, she runs into ex-husband, Stephen, and his new fiancée.
In a desperate attempt not to loose in the ex-game; she blurbs out that she has landed a starring role in a movie, and that a stranger walking down the street is her new boyfriend, Ethan. What should have been a one time lie spins completely out of control. Suddenly Grace finds herself having to fake a relationship with a stranger and somehow put together a movie. Can she pull it off? Or has this struggling actress taken on much more than she bargained for?
To make sure I really give NaNoWriMo my all, I'm making myself MIA from blogging for the first week of November. I did say I was going to be MIA from everything else on the net, but I'm still going to be checking in on things.
