The bad guys in the 13th Floor series are quite the diverse group. Nick Wilford has been so kind to host me during all my tours this year, and I've talked about each villain in turn. Today he hosts me one more time, and I'm talking about the sympathetic villain.
Yes, I'm going to be participating again this year. I have a busy November outside my writing world, but I just can't miss NaNoWriMo. I love it too much, even if I don't finish a novel. I think it's great to motivate me to push myself when I start feeling sluggish because it's the end of the year.
I'll be doing a NA urban fantasy this year. Its working title is THE UNDERDOGS. And yes, it's about geeks. Geeks who are real life wizards, druids, and adventurers. (It will be more of a buddy story than a romance.) I have a loose idea of a modern day Dungeons & Dragons type of story with a Lovecraftian feel. Small town, creepy folks, ancient monster.
I finished off my superhero romance (my NaNo novel from last year), made notes for more revisions, and sent a few of my faithful readers. After November, I'll be working on revisions for a paranormal romance (my NaNo novel from 2011). I hope to query one or both of these novels in the new year.
NaNoWriMo has helped me write some amazing stories. If you're going to participate this year, good luck! I'll be cheering you along the way and writing like a madwoman whenever I get a free minute.
