I’ve joined the October Obsession BIAM Writathon 2013 a.k.a. Book In A Month. Here’s the description:
This is a Book in a Month Writing Frenzy occurring twice a year; the first is April Madness, the second October Obsession. We lock our internal editors in THE DUNGEON and let our imaginations soar, so we can write a rough first draft of a book, work on WIPs, edit and revise, or whatever as long as we write, write, write. Browse around in the Files, Links, Photos, Polls and Database for writing tips and information. Our goal is to write and write some more. Remember: You can always fix it later!
I’ve always wanted to try the NaNoWriMo — The National Novel Writing Month, but life interfered with the last two Novembers and I have a busy fall planned. The BIAM has been called “the gentler NaNoWriMo”.
Why am I doing this? To finish my work in progress so I can leave the romance genre behind and get back to writing my magnum opus. I may return to love stories now and then, but after so many years spent working on my 5-book/500k series, it’s time to get that show on the road. The BIAM is a sort of feet to the flames nudge in that direction.
“You and I, it’s as though we have been taught to kiss in heaven and sent down to earth together, to see if we know what we were taught.”
~ Dr. Zhivago (penned by Boris Pasternak)
