NaNo Fast Approaching!

I can't believe how fast the month of October is flying by. Soon I'll be taking the boys out trick-or-treating. Mommy's little heroes...spiderman and the hulk. I'm going to take way too many pictures but that's my right. And my dollar. But I figure the little guys aren't going to be all that little for long and soon enough they'll resemble dismembered, bleeding gouls. (Don't all boys go through the grusome Halloween costume phase?)

On the heels of Halloween comes NaNo. Beginning November 1st I'm going to commit myself to completing 50,000 words by month's end. I've been preparing for the marathon, though. Using the Powerstructure software (the demo is nearly used up!), I have been able to develop a new story. So far, so good. I like what I've got. A vampire romance. I'm dedicating this one to my mom because she's all but demanded I actually finish a vampire romance for her. Well...at least she likes my writing, even if she is a bit pushy. :D

I haven't written anything. Not here and not on my WIP. In fact, just last night I was whining to my husband that I can't seem to write any more. I don't know what has happened to me but I sit down with every intention of writing something only to find my mind blank and my fingers motionless above the keyboard.

In order to combat this supposed writer's block, I've signed up for NaNoWriMo over at NaNoWriMo.org. 50,000 words in one month. In order to meet this goal, I'm allowing myself to write absolute trash. The object of this game is to get writing again. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm not going to think about readers or critiquers or even publishers. I'm going to have to write for me and only me.

Wish me luck.
