Confession time: I'm cheating just a bit. I already have my novel started. Its working title is Daughter of the Wind and Waves. It's a historical/paranormal set in the time of Henry VIII. My fanfiction fans know how much I love those Tudors. (But don't worry, guys, I'm keeping my nerdy side in check this time and not drowning you in historical detail; nor will there be footnotes, though I pleaded for them.)
The End of All Things, I wasn't able to work on it as much as I would have liked. But now I'm free! Free! (At least for the time being.) I'm hoping that I'll be able to complete it, at least a large chunk of it, this month. It'll be an awesome challenge and it will keep me on track.
If nothing else, it's excellent practice.
