Why yes indeed it is that time of year again! National Novel Writing Month (more affectionately known as NaNoWriMo) begins as the clock strikes midnight and the second hand ticks over into November 1st. As I have been doing since 2009, I shall be participating and doing my damnedest to kick the asses of writer's block and that fucking inner editor. Also as I have previously done, I will be writing fanfic. (Note, find my author page here and add me as a buddy if you so like. Gimme a wave ^_~)

This year's project: Long fic set in my Starring Role universe (aka the genderswapped, Toni Stark MCU series). The story is planned to deal with the reveal of Toni's identity as Iron Man and develop the Steve/Toni relationship. Actually, I've come to terms with (and embraced!) the fact that at its bare bones, this story is gonna be a romance. There's a lot I plan to have in with this and the conflicts are going to be more team-based and external hurdles of villainous deeds (I'm doing my own take on bringing AIM into MCU), but at its heart my end goal is to get Toni and Steve happily together. Come on, y'all know me by now, I need my happy ending.

I need people to be excited for me even if you have no interest in the story, okay? I thrive off the energy of the month and I think the main thing that got me to victory last year was the word count competition I ended up having with my mom. (She's making another go at it this year, hoping she gets another victory!) Me, I want to up my victory percentage. Right now I'm at 2/4 so let's get me to make that 3/5 wins, ok? I really want that winners' shirt this year. (Hey, the NaNo theme is 8-bit gaming! WANT!)

I'll be trying to get around to some advice posts in the next couple days. I'm also posting stuffs on tumblr, so you can check out the nanowrimo tag there.

You are way better off than me, I have 0/4! Dude! We totally started Nano the same year...(I think this is my fifth year)!

I'm going to fail again, but I know you can do it! I totally believe in you and just tell me how I can help keep you psyched about it and I will do my very bestest!

I LOVE NaNo to pieces, it's like one of the highlights of my year. I'm stoked to be around active people because I swear getting engaged with others is what brings out the wins. In 2009 I was still in Milwaukee and i had a fucking amazing ML and participated in a number of social events. Last year I hooked up with my local friend who was participating and we pow-wowed as well as went to some social events. Last year also had my competitive race against my mom, lol. It really gets me going.
