After seeing that article on DailyPost, I figured that joining the National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo) would be worth my while. I’ve always wanted to write a novel before I hit eighteen and, since I’m well-versed in the arts of procrastinating, I figured NaNoWriMo would be my best bet. If by chance you’re a fellow NaNo writer — or Wrimo, I think we’re called — then awesome! We can panic together!
Since I’m juggling this between my coursework, I’ll have to become a better planner and use my time wisely before November starts. My ‘novel’ is still in its baby years, but I am really psyched about this and I hope beyond hope that I will not disappoint. What I’ve got to show so far is a summary of sorts.
Dorcas Chase and Cyrus Roberg are two very different people and have absolutely nothing in common. She is the sister of the most popular girl in town, and he is the son of a reclusive scientist. However, after a strange phenomenon enabled Dorcas to somehow live in Cyrus’ mind, they find a way to coexist. Can Dorcas look past the surface and see the secret Cyrus is trying to hide? Will Cyrus ever find a way to extract Dorcas from his mind?
The answer is yes… and no.
What do you think? Does it have potential? I’m chewing my nails here…
