I'm planning on doing it! I tried a few years ago and didn't finish but my life's a little different this time around and I think I'll have the time. I'm hoping it'll be fun!

Here's a link to my profile page. Let's be writing buddies!

It's scary, but I may give this a go. The idea I have in mind is rather autobiographical, but I think I may just do it anyway.

It;s getting uncomfortably close. It's my first time, and I don;t even know I'll be able to with the time I have. Oh well.

What's everybody's topic? I was doing some fanfic (three different people being fans of Muse, Bryan Adams, and Britney Spears) but then last night I had a weird dream that I wanna expand on. So day two and I'm completely overhauling. I guess that's better than doing it on day 22, right?

Oh yeah, the dream was about a bunch of people at camp and weird stuff keeps happening to them, like a shark shows up in the lake, even though it's just a lake (and a man-made one at that)...it seemed more interesting in my dream, though. Maybe I'll stick with fanfic.

Ive been working on some horror/thriller stuff ive had in mind, just never bothered to get on with it. I keep getting ideas for twists and turns so im going with it now.

Here's my prologue/excerpt for the nano website

Quote:
Tonight. Tonight I killed a man. I never meant to, I swear.
He came too close. It's his fault. All his fault.
He got in my way. He went for me so I lunged.
It was near me.
The umbrella. It pierced into his chest.
Blood fell everywhere and finally I felt free.

Tonight. Tonight I killed a man.

Mine's a dystopian fiction about if America never entered WW2 and the Germans overtook them. Now in the present, a band of rebels are fighting them. Here's an excerpt:
I fight the wash. Just look at my record. I know they hate me, they tell me outright. Iím they're worst customer. Good.
This is not how it's supposed to be. The world may not be perfect, but it should be a hell of a lot better than this. I hear my name being called by the "nurse". She's more like an unemotional puppet. "Maylin? Maylin Wright?" I brush off the nonexistent chains and walk to the gray room ahead. The single fluorescent light shines right on the industrial looking chair and glinting on the steel restraints. The headpiece, a menacing steel hat of brainwashing might, sits on top of it all. I stand my ground at the threshold.
"Walk in, Maylin."
Anger tainted her voice. The nurse shoved me into the room. I could've easily overcome her, but I let her because I've learned my lesson, although my brain doesn't believe me, judging by the nightmares I still have. But I stood stock still one step from the door. I was not going in that thing. Shana whirled around, grabbed my wrist, and pulled. Round one starts now.

Wow, antoftheproblematique and Aquifa, your excerpts sound awesome! I thought about dabbling in science fiction because it's my favorite genre and I know it pretty well. But when I fleshed out my plots they ended up being too similar to something that already existed. I guess that doesn't really matter because no one ever has to read my novel, but I'd still like it to be more original. They say write what you know and right now I'm a huge Muse fangirl, so I'm just doing a sort of biography on the life of a fan.

Thank you! But I think I'd say write what you want to know more about.
