My first novel Perfect Imperfections￼ was born during NaNoWriMo and it was an amazing experience. Call the participants a crazy bunch of people but you will not find a community who is so enthusiastic about cheering for you to succeed as much as the NaNo community does. We have fun writing sprints, write-ins, and some crazy writing marathons. And at the end of it, a novel is born.
This year I am a little torn between what do I write, though I am leaning towards this story of a girl who discovers her family secret...and I think I am going to be a pantster this year, get into the whole experience with no prior homework. That's not really my style as I am a planner (plotter) (I have a to-do list for EVERYTHING) and being a pantster is going to be a scary experience for me. But then that's the fun part of NaNoWriMo you get to try everything and discover your style.
So here I come NaNoWriMo 2015!!
