We are gearing up for NaNoWriMo- it’s less than a week away now. We’re both excited to try this but there’s that tingly nervous feeling hanging around. Has anyone ever tried it? If you haven’t: it’s National Novel Writing Month- the goal is to write 50,000 from November 1st-30th. It’s really all about helping people write and just getting them to keep going and going.

We just announced our plan for our novel and wanted to see what everyone thought. Here goes nothing:
In a world were The Tower controls them all…in which their own goods are stolen, and hiding them is punishable by death, one region is allowed extra rations and is rotated near to the tower. That region is decided every year in a spectacular Tower-only viewing television event in which the volunteer 18 year old are put through a series of tests- of knowledge, power and physical abilities.
Addy is finally 18 and eligible for The Proving…her region hasn’t won in years and her family is dying. She finally has the chance to prove herself but when unexplained disappearances happen around her she begins to question everything she’s ever known. Will Addy make it to the end?
Does it sound interesting? Would you read it? We will probably update with small excerpts but will wait to start posting the whole thing until after the month is over. Let us know in the comments!
Don’t worry if you were looking for You’re Playing My Game Now (YPMGN) Part 4, Rise of the Dead part 2- those will be coming soon!
