"If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." ~Toni Morrison
I found this awesome quote the other day and just had to share it. This quote points to one of the reasons I write. I imagine a story . . .and guess what? No one else has written it yet. So I have to write it out myself. I enjoy writing rough drafts because I love imagining my way through the story with a basic plot line by my side.
So, here I am trying to fix the last problems in Champion, but totally distracted by another idea (remember I enjoy rough drafts), and I decided to sign up for NaNoWriMo, which is kind of crazy.
I am going to finish polishing my very last draft of Champion in the Darkness by December. (I had an 8 chapter day on Saturday, and I'm looking forward to another one of those next weekend, so I think I have a chance of getting it done.) I'm also going to write the first draft of The Identity of Captain Wrath. Somehow in November, I'm going to work on both. I may not win NaNo this year, and I'm not really worried about it. (Ok, there's a part of me that wants to win everything, but mostly I'm not worried about it.)
So, anyone else up for NaNo this year?
Have you ever looked for the book of your dreams and decided that you just need to write it?
And are you ready for the Partners in ParanormYA guest post this Wednesday?
