The Shadow Of NaNoWriMo

This annual event will forever be a part of the Paranormal Shadow series. Book One: Shadow Watch was conceived and written for the 2008 NaNoWriMo event. If it hadn’t been for this I probably would never have started writing in this genre.┬áNow, here it is, October again and I’m prepping myself for another volume to be added to the series.

I plan to retry one of my failed attempts that could be Book Three in the series.

So begins the preparations. First the idea: Murder by Mirror.

What does that mean? I’m not sure yet.

But I have started the research I’ll need while I’m writing. So I’ve begun with the history of mirrors. Then I will Google the different ways magic is used with mirrors. I will take that and give it a twist.

I’ll also be trimming my nails. I find I make a lot fewer typos with short nails.

Are you thinking of joining NaNoWriMo this year? Let me know in the comments below. We can join forces and encourage each other.
