It’s blue. It used to be grey, and now it’s blue. That little box in the upper right hand corner of the NaNoWriMo website stared at me day in and day out last month, grey and dead, stuck at 0. “NaNoWriMo has yet to begin” it sighed, and I sighed, too, because I wished it weren’t true.
Well, now it’s not. The update button is yellow again, and that 0 can become any number I want it to be! The world is my pogo stick! What to write first?

Imagine how giddy I’ll be when I finally get to click it. Passers by will probably mistake me for a Twilight fan. Note to self: make sure there are no passers by when you click the button.
That being said, I wanted to post my synopsis and cover art for this year’s NaNoNovel today in honor of the beginning of NaNoWriMo, and I’ll keep you posted as my word count climbs this month. Onward to 50,000!

The mysterious young woman offered him a miracle he couldn’t pass up, even if her one condition was a killer – literally. “Each day you must convince a different person to kill you. If you succeed, you’ll wake up in your bed the next morning and live another day. If you fail, you’ll die – and stay that way.” At the time it seemed like a great offer. Three months after he died for the first time, however, Tran isn’t so sure. He’s made a lot of enemies in ninety days, and one of them has finally discovered his secret…
