So I bit the bullet and joined NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Why? Because I have another novel to write. And because I want to complete the first draft by the end of this year. And because this seemed like an awesome opportunity and I’ve never done it.

I’m just a tad bit nervous. 😉

I’ll be working on THROUGH THE WALLED CITY, my new YA project set in Cartagena, Colombia. I am hoping to “win”–which apparently means to complete the 50,000 word challenge. So people, that’s my goal and I’m sticking to it. I hope! I will certainly try my best to meet it.

Are you participating in NaNo this year? Have you participated in the past? What was your experience? Would love to hear from you!
