Tumbling Tuesdays and New Novembers

Yep, my title probably doesn't sound like I'm trying anymore. I was trying to be more cute, however this time around because I've been tumbling over a very eventful weekend involving a trip to an amusement park, Busch Gardens, a trip to my second ever Rocky Horror Picture Show (first time I watched all the way through, definitely a fun time despite and probably because of the craziness), and finally the slew of last minute homework I had to complete upon arriving back home from this weekend. Believe you me, taking 18 credits of ASL translation and observation, writing fiction and nonstop poetry, and an Asian language is not as fun as it sounds when it builds up like that.

So finally Tuesday is the breather day of all this and I am ever so excited to remember that November is coming up! And if you don't know what that means for writers everywhere (and all those agents hiding in fear of their slush piles), it's NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. Click the link if you're interested in the finer points, but basically you write a book in a month! I 'competed' last year and finished half of a sequel I was procrastinating for the longest time. This year, I'm planning on participating again and shell out the rough draft of either a project about a medieval British serf and his brush with Welsh faeries or the bizarre family of a Scottish Unseelie noble (this is the point where I slip into some Celtic mythology jargon and ramble on for another ten paragraphs).

On a side note, after my last post, I'd like to thank everyone for their feedback about the spur of the moment book jacket blurb, whether you commented or not. I'll put up a post, a link, or something having to do with the first chapter of that project in the near future, probably as soon as next week. I just have to figure out how I'm going to go about it first.

So, on the NaNo side of things, I'm still debating over which project I should do...any thoughts to those extremely vague premises for any faerie fantasy writers out there? For everyone else, what are your ideas for NaNo, if you're participating, eh? Tell me! I'm excited to know what's going on with you! :D
