NaNoWriMo and the Great Frantic Novel

NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month, is a "fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing". Supposedly. I signed up and now must write 50,000 words in a month in order to not feel like a total loser. We begin writing tomorrow, November 1 and finish (hopefully a 50K-word novel) by 11:59:59 PM on November 30. Can I do it? We'll see. At least I'll have something.

I'm excited to start writing a story about... Uh, vampires. Lame? Possibly. Don't judge me! Everybody and their mom seem to be writing about mermaids nowadays, and a witch book here or there, but I don't see a huge number of vampyrs anymore (I like to say vampyr). At least, not in my shopping world, which is what Amazon recommends for me.

But even if everybody and their moms were writing about vampires, I'd still write about vampires. Why?

My all-time favorite paranormal class is vampires. In my teenage years my favorite books were the Vampire Diaries (the original four books – let's ignore the whole The Return thing. Don't make me talk about it! Ugh), the Last Vampire series (I think Christopher Pike wrote more books recently, but I learned from my mistake, and decided to leave the past alone. It could've been great, because he was great before, but I thought the same of LJ Smith, didn't I?? Sorry. I digress), and Anne Rice. Vampires are my thing. I always had all sorts of silly ideas, which I now want to turn into a series.

Hopefully starting tomorrow!
