BuNoWriMo! I'm in.


Some housekeeping items before I take off for the gloriously cool hills in our vintage camper.

  • I'll be gone all weekend. Off grid. Going to work on my book! Love writing outdoors.
  • It needs a title. If you'd like to get the gist of what it's about, I wrote an unfinished, short-story version of it in February of 2011. Please help me out and suggest titles. Genre: space opera, with a generous helping of spies, double-crosses, competing agencies, and set in 2149.
  • Yes, I'm once again attempting BuNoWriMo. You can check 'em out on facebook. It's like NaNoWriMo, only in June. I figured I don't have enough to do what with the house full of teenagers and all, co-hosting the A-Z Challenge blog, blogging here, the Post A-Z Road Trip, and general life responsibilities.  Seemed like a good time to write a book.
  • Have a great weekend!

If you were to write a book, or are writing a book, what genre would you choose?

Have a good weekend and get a lot of writing done! I would write something spooky but classy. Like if you took Cormac McCarthy and smooshed him up with Gabriel Garcia Marquez, maybe a dash of Charles Dickens for tone.

Didn't read it yet, but from the description, how about "Crossed in Space" for the title of the book...

I'd write a children's book; something about danger and rescue and bravery or about an object which didn't do what it was supposed to, with disastrous consequences.

I wrote two ebooks...both were instructional material and only one did ok, so if I were to write a book that would be in print, I would choose to write a children's book because when I was a teenager, I came up with some ideas for a children's story that I would write one day....but I never did. So, I would write that one...IF I were to write a book :)
