Nanowrimo: Day Two Quitting Before I Begin?

Hello There!
Astray leading title, huh?

No, I'm not quitting nano (it's still early though lol), But I am quitting my plot. I've decide to go with the contemporary anorexia story. It's what I'm feeling at the moment. Plus it takes less research than 16th century Aberdonian witch hunts. 
The other novel is being temporarily shelved and I'll come back to it. I've developed the beginnings of a complex plot that could span a few books, I'm not about to waste all that sheer luck.
"Aye, and luck is a cloaked trick of the Devil"

Shut up Mrs Forrester!
Does this baffle you? It should. How sad of me to have in-jokes with my writing projects :).

I must stop procrastinating and get back to work. I want get at least 500words of this new novel done before bed. Elspeth  has school in the morning and I have work (there I go again).

Nanowrimo: Day One Continued

Evening All! 
I have just been to my first write-in. Safe to say it was very intimidating. The two people I was sitting across from were already reaching the 10K mark and it's only day one. 
I, however, have just broke my first thousand and am thrilled. But I still don't know if I like the story I'm writing.
I know it's not too late to change my mind, but it'd have to be a story that would just flow out of my fingers before I can justify the change.

Anyways, I'm going to type up what I wrote before I go to bed.

Nanowrimo: Day One

Hello my Lovelies!

As you can maybe guess by the title, I have decided to take part in Nanowrimo this year. Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It happens every November. Thousands of crazy people set themselves the insane goal of writing 50,000 words in 30 days.

Although this is day one, I have yet to decide on which novel to write. I have four ideas.
1- A contemporary fiction about anorexia.
2 - A dystopian (what if Scotland really got independence?!)
3 - A paranormal about a ghost destroying a young girls existence.
4 - A dark romance about two souls cursed to walk through time alone.

I kinda have my hopes set on the fourth option, I've been toying with the idea for at least 5 years. I think it's time I got it out of my system.
I'm going to a write-in tonight at the Belmont Cinema. Hopefully I'll will have settled by then :).

Are any of you taking part in nanowrimo?

September's Library Trip

The Aberdeen Central Library is suprisingly well stocked. I went in on Wednesday to return last month's book and I had no idea what I wanted next. So Idecided to have a good old browse....
...and I came out with SEVEN books!

Here they are in all their glory.

My favourite thing about going to the library is that I can pick up the books that I would be embarassed to look at in a store.

I had heard about 'Perfect Chemistry' By Simone Elkeles through the videos of several Booktubers and I was a nit excited when I saw, so I snagged it.

'Leaving Paradise' (also by Simone Elkeles) was a lucky find. It was one of those moments when your eyes are
just draw to it. And even though it'n not really my sort of book I had to pick it up.

'Forsaken: The Demon Trappers' by Jana Oliver is a book I was recommended on Amazon and I had been look at in store, but I was never sold on it. So when I saw it on the shelf, I just had to give it a try.
'Strange Angels' by Lili St. Crow was a random find that just sounded good at the time. We'll see though.

'The Forest of Hands and Feet' by Carrie Ryan is one I heard about through chapter chicks. It sounds unusual and different from what I usually read, but I'm excited to get in to it.

'Evernight' by Claudia Gray is a book I've been eyeing up for a while but, to be honest, I've found embarassing to pick up. I think it had something to do with the cover being so emo looking.
Finally (please don't shoot me) 'The Hunger Games ' by Suzanne Collins, I've never read this series and I only found out about the series just before 'Mokingjay' was released. If I like this one I'll pick up the rest of the series on my next library trip.

I'm currently reading 'City of Bones' By Cassandra Clare (only 20 pages left) I'm excited to dive into this pile :)
Have any of you read these before?
Love and Bugs
