NaNo 2009

My 2009 NaNo Novel has not only a working title, but a .jpg to go with it.  I rule.  This .jpg might give away more than I care to about the plot, though.  I may keep playing with my new free photo editing website and make another one or two before I settle.

It's not YA anymore, by the way.  In case the picture didn't give that away.  I decided in the end that I couldn't handle the idea that I had before; it was just too personal.  There's going to be elements of that idea in this story, but I'm using this as a bit of a stepping stone to get myself ready to write that story next year sometime (maybe NaNo, maybe not).  For now, I just hope that the huge outline that I have thrown together works to help me keep writing, and doesn't hinder me or somehow constrain me.  I'm afraid that I'll feel bound by the outline.  Writing starts tonight at midnight, so we'll see how it goes.  My immediate goal is to get to get as close to 10,000 words as possible by bedtime Sunday night.  Really, if I can get to 5,000 by then, I'll be satisfied, but I'd love to hit 8K or 10K by the close of business on November first.

I made the .jpg smaller, for my message board signatures:
