I caved. I caved caved caved. I just wrote a post last week how I was not going to do NaNoWriMo 2013. On Friday I opened up a word document so I could jot down some ideas for a book. I ended up with over 3k words by the end of the day. The fever had reached me subconsciously. I scold and reminded myself why I was not doing this frenzy. I don’t have time. I need to work on the book that just got released. My doctors will not be happy.
But the fever that started within me in 2011 has never left. The fire of writing a book in November each month still lives. My stubbornness with this is to win. To do anything else is not an option for me. They may not be 60k great words but there will be 50k words before November is out. That is the plan.
This is how I started my NaNoWriMo book for 2013:
The devastation came silently. No one knew it was coming until it was too late. The quiet killer the perfect weapon. No one had a chance.
War had been rampant in the Middle East for years. But the US had always been able to keep it at bay from their native shores for the most part. But there were some things they couldn’t stop. The virus that coursed through the veins of millions of Americans. It started with the young, the elderly and the weak.
But that was not enough. More was to come. No one could prepare for what was next.
I wrote this on my Facebook page and my peeps welcomed me into the collective, knowing that this was bound to happen. Not one was really shocked. People have given me some good comments to the above opening. I like it. As of Monday night I was at a little over 14k words.
Stay tune. Hopefully this is not a foolish dream to complete and win NaNoWriMo for 2013.
