National Novel Writing Month

You guys, I just joined NaNoWriMo! I don't know why, except that all the YA author bloggers keep talking about it and the pressure got to me.  Now I either have to write 50,000 words in the next 30 days (just 1667 per day!), lie to the internet, or be totally humiliated.  Since my current average daily output is zero words, I'm going to have to change my entire lifestyle—and fast!  Also, since my alien hybrid trilogy didn't pan out, I don't even have a plot, so this really should work out well...   Off to the coffee shop with my laptop then, like the pros!

p.s.  Here's what I read this week:
Charles and Emma: The Darwins’ Leap of Faith, Deborah Heiligman
Skim, Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, Gabrielle Zevin
After Tupac and D Foster, Jacqueline Woodson

Week's YA total:4
YTD total: 73
