NaNoWriMo and Contest!

First of all, I have the privelege of being one of the top five contestants in Emily Grace's Photography contest! Head on over to her blog to vote for your favorite photo here.

Also, I decided to change what book I'm going to write for NaNo. ;) I did a lot of thinking about it, and yesterday I decided that I'd be more interested, comfortable, and satisfied writing a historical-fiction book about a southern girl and her family during the Civil War. I've always loved learning about the Civil War (I've read so many books about it! =)  ) and I personally love reading books in the genre. The other benefit is that there really isn't an epic Civil War novel like that (well, none that I care for) so I don't feel intimidated at all. If I'd gone with the Sci-Fi novel I would've had a hard time - trying not to copy books like Lord of the Rings.

So. That's what I'm doing. =D It's called "With a War Between Them," and I'll be posting excerpts from the book as I go along. I'm really excited! Last night I was working on my main characters, and it was just really coming alive for me. I can't wait to start writing it!!

Okay - here are some photos. (I think I've written three posts without Time for that to change. ;)  )
