It’s that time of year again. Time to sharpen my keyboard and plug in my pencil (okay maybe I’ve had too much coffee). Camp NaNoWriMo is upon us.
I have decided what I will be working on next month. I was hit in the head with this idea a few days ago. The story will be about a female writer. Her books are about murderers and she takes the “write from your experiences” mantra to heart.
I haven’t decided what POV I want to write this in. First person would be good because we could delve deep into her twisted thinking. Third person would also be good because I’m going to have her murders vary from the ones in her books so that she doesn’t get caught (that was my husband’s idea this morning). This would cause me to bring a frustrated cop of some sort into play. Although the frustrated cop could still make an appearance in first person. Oh the possibilities!
I’m excited about this one. I can feel her forming in my head and I have a feeling that when she finds her voice she’s going to yell at me to start. So I may be ahead of my word count by the time April 1st rolls around.
For those that don’t know, NaNoWriMo stands for “National Novel Writing Month” and is in November. It’s 50,000 words in 30 days. They also have Camp NaNoWriMo in April and July. These are ‘set your own word count’ goal oriented. My goal for April is 15,000 words.
