NaNoWriMo day 8

I'm Jennifer Echols and I usually write YA, but at the moment I'm writing an adult romantic comedy called STAR CROSSED. I said I would write 3000 words today. I actually wrote 3019 words of rich, golden-brown goodness with a chocolatey glaze, dissimilar in texture but reminiscent of the taste of a deep-fried Snickers. Tomorrow I will write only 2000 as I take time for development. Some plot would be a nice change at this point.

If you're in Birmingham, don't forget the NaNoWriMo write-in at Blackwell's Pub from 2 to 6 on Sunday. I have something else to do on Sunday too, but I will try to make it at least part of the time. If you feel like you're going nuts, meeting with other real-life writers will always make you feel more sane, especially if one of them is wearing a squid hat.

Please post:
1. Who you are
2. What sort of book you're writing
