WIP Day - The Prepping Has Begun

It's Wednesday.  Meaning it is WIP day.
So, updates you ask.  Um well, updates.  I have updates. *Searches for updates...*

Ok ok, I will admit it.  I have been bad.  I did edit one chapter last night.  One.  But hey, one is better than none, right?  Needless to say, I am behind schedule.  I think those writer blues have a firm grasp of me, and man are they evil!  But I am fighting them.  I know it is normal to lose confidence.  As long as I don't quit, all is good, right?

Writing, I love you.  I adore you.  I cannot live without you.  Editing... eh... not so much.
But the beat goes on.

(Side note:  Kimmel, my friend I mention here off and on, has finally started her own blog.  Go show her love... HERE!)

I decided for my WIP day today I also wanted to mention NaNoWriMo.
"It's in November," You say. "It is May.  Why are you mentioning it?"

Well, it was about this time last year that I started to prep for the awesome event.  Mind you, I didn't make plot lines and arcs and crazy time lines full of every possible event that would take place in PN.  I am much much more of a pantser than that.  But I did settle on the story and started to let my brain do the thinking.

Now, I am torn as to what my NaNovel 2011 will be.  I have three great ideas.  Ok, great to me.  I love each for its own reason.  I have one I keep leaning strongly to... but then I bounce over to another for a moment or days or... you get the idea.  I would love to settle on one already and start to let the creation begin, but it's like picking a spouse.  It needs to be "the one." 

Here are the mock covers I have whipped up for the three ideas.  Yes... can you tell I used them as a reason to not edit?  I am awesome.  Mind you, I do not have full rights to all the images shown.  Hence them being mock covers and nothing else.  Still, I would love to know what you think.  Judging the book on the COVER (ooo what a sin) which would you personally choose for my NaNovel?

I am really looking forward to NaNoWriMo this year.  PN will be done.  (Yes, it will!)  My mind will be free to create a new world.  (Dangerous?)  And for that one month out of the year I feel more connected to the writing world than any other time (But don't get me wrong Bloggers.  I love you.  I can't live without you.  Honestly.)

So, are you joining up this year?  Have you got your story picked?  What process have you gone through to pick your NaNovel?  I am all... eyes.

Happy writing!

For of all, thanks for the love. Second of all, go you for getting a Chapter edited! And third, I REALLY want you to work on Redone Shadows! Enough said.

I especially love that first one. It's a winning contradiction.

I've been feeling those writerly blues, too. Good thing for blogs, right? We can "WiP" each other into shape. :)
