Preparing for my Third NaNoWriMo







~*Note*~ If you do not know what NaNoWriMo is, check out this page on my site. http://beccalathorn.weebly.com/nanowrimo-projects.html

Hi Guys! So, tomorrow Camp NaNoWriMo August 2012 starts up, and as you know I am a bit of a NaNoWriMo freak. Too recap, I have done NaNo twice. First, the official one in November 2011. That...I failed. I love the plot though, and given the chance I will try to finish the book. Second one was just a month ago, Camp NaNoWriMo June 2012, and I WON YOU STINKING MONKEYS YOU SAID I COULDN'T BUT I DID SO GO EAT YOUR BUTT FLEAS IN SHAME!!!!!

Ahem.


So I'm feeling a bit proud of myself. I've finished three manuscripts, two of which are in a series, and by the end of November this year I hope to have three more. I'm fairly knowledgable in the publishing industry and taking my writing to the next level. So this NaNo I want to challenge myself. I do not, however, know how to go about this, so I'm reaching out to all of you to come up with dares for me to do.

I also feel I should mention...


Last time I did NaNo I did a small webcast series called NaNoWriMo in Review in the absence of these more traditional blogs. I do plan to do something similar to that in doing another small webcast series calls Becca's Little Pearls of Wisdom, a short intro I will put in a separate post.









And lastly, the story itself.

This time around, I am writing a story I've had in my head for a while. Granted, it's not nearly as old as No Matter What You Do, Stick with the Pack or Firefly. And yes, as usual it will be a Paranormal adventure type. Although, for my November one I'm leaning more towards humor then action. (Details to come in November.) AGHHHHHHHH I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO END IT YET!!!!! But, you know, whatever. Here's the teaser.


Meet Stefani Rivers. She's independent, adventurous, and strong willed. Purely a Chicago girl all the way. She loves performing, for perfroming's sake. But when she meets a rich pretty boy running from a crazed cult, she gets hooked into the road trip of a life time.
Stefani Rivers sneaks out of her house one night in hopes of being the next American Idol. Literally! She calls up a agent and sets up an audition (even though she's only sixteen). But when she gets stood up and Jeremy Booker, a high-class pretty boy, asks her out on a date, well, things don't go as planned. They are kidnapped by a psychotic cult and then Jeremy gets turned into a freak of nature. So she gets roped into a cross country road trip to find a girl who can turn Jeremy back to normal. 


So, those are my blabberings. I'm taking NaNo right into a new school year, so yay for that. Keep it real ladies and gents, see you in a week.
