I haven’t posted in a while, mostly due to Halloween costume crunch time (pics coming soon! I promise!), and most recently because of Nanowrimo. But I want to share what I’m doing for Nanowrimo, because it’s slightly different than what I’ve done in past years.
This year, one of my favorite blogs, Forever Young Adult, has a Nanowrimo challenge. One of their regular columns takes the covers of YA books (usually of the cheesy variety) and writes a summary of what they believe the book is about based solely on the cover. So FYA challenged people to write a Nanowrimo novel based on one of these cover stories.
It was a tough decision, but I decided to go with The Thing About the Truth. Not surprisingly it’s about zombies. (A close second was Click to Subscribe… can’t wait to see if anyone is writing a novel described as “This high school re-imagining of The Human Centipede tells a horror story of harrowing survival and burgeoning romance between best friends who always have each other’s backs.”)
If any of you out there are also taking the FYA Nanowrimo Challenge, please add me as a writing buddy!
Thus far I am still ahead of the game… hopefully it stays that way!
