I’m participating in National Novel Writing Month this year. The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days and have a first draft for a novel. Kick-off is today.
“What’s your book about?” my editor asked.
“Lesbian romance set in the 80s. Big hair, big love, something like that,” I wrote back.
“I’m feeling nostalgic,” she wrote. “But mullets.”
So, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. If you don’t hear from me in November, I’m busy writing about the 80s and lesbians and quoting lyrics from songs sung by the big hair bands. “And, baby, talk dirty to me.” Like that.
Because lesbians rule and the 80s were the best and if you’ve never rocked a mullet you’ve never really lived.
If you want to help a writer out, I still need a name for a really great, fictional lesbian bar. Best answer will find its way into my novel.
Anything else that needs to be in there? Trivial Pursuit, Pac-Man, a Rubik’s Cube …
Oh, and if you’re doing NaNoWriMo, e-mail me and we can be NaNo buddies.
