Happy Halloween to all the ghouls and goblins out there! To those with kids who are trick-or-treating tonight I hope you all have fun.
I can't believe we're already saying goodbye to October, but I'm excited because I'm really looking forward to starting NaNoWriMo tomorrow. I've been working on getting my novel ready and I feel like the pieces are falling into place, so I can't wait to start writing now.
My NaNo project is a story I've been kicking around in my head for a while now called "The Ghosts of Aquinnah." It takes place on the island of Martha's Vineyard, and begins with the real-life shipwreck of The City of Columbus, which sank off the coast of the island in January, 1884 while on its way from Boston to Savannah. The main character is a writer who is trying to learn the truth about what happened to a passenger who survived the wreck and found himself recovering on Martha's Vineyard. The story is a mystery mixed with a love story and, as the title suggests, it involves more than one ghost.
Who knows what kind of a story I will have when December arrives and NaNo has ended, but I'm really excited to get started and find out.
I'm going to be participating in a few blogfests in November but other than that I don't think I'll be blogging much due to the NaNo writing. I will try to keep up with my blog reading and commenting but if I get behind please forgive me! I'll definitely catch up in December.
To everyone who is signed up for this year's NaNo, good luck and happy writing to you! :)
