Symphony of Crickets

Holy Hell.  What am I thinking?  I can't even manage to blog on a regular basis and I think I'm going to write a whole freaking novel in a month?!?!  That is just hilarious.  NaNoWriMo starts in a matter of hours and I have a title (Symphony of Crickets) and maybe a general idea of what I'm going to write.  Sort of.  Maybe.  Or not.  I mean, I have hours to decide how it starts, right?

I'm thinking it is going to be a Sci-fi/Romance/Thriller/Comedy/TRAINWRECK.  Kind of like Bubba Ho-Tep  meets Mars Attacks! with a splash of love interest.  And with Buddy Holly (hence the crickets) instead of Elvis and the aliens aren't from Mars (or maybe they are).  Obviously I plan on writing an original novel that is going to be an award winning, best seller.  And then they are going to make it into a summer blockbuster and show it at the IMAX.  Also? It is going to be an Oprah Book Club Pick (this is out of the ordinary because my book will not be depressing).  That is how good it is going to be.  Yep.  And I am going to write this groundbreaking novel in one month.

You know, maybe you wouldn't be obsessing so much if you only bent the rules a little. But I look forward to ordering it from Amazon next month.

Impressive! I'm attempting to not fail NaBloPoMo for the 3rd year in a row before I consider such a feat as NaNoWriMo.

Good luck!!

*grins* You've clearly jumped into the madness with both feet.

mad: I would never bend the rules, but I wish I had. Working in my yard didn't help things along much. But I'm not going to worry, after all tomorrow is another day.

huckdoll: I tried that once and I'm pretty sure I screwed that up, too. I don't know what I'm thinking.

amurin: I have already perfected the art of procrastination in one day.
