Title: Check. Summary: Check. Courage: Check.

It is so eerie to think NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow. I’m stoked. I’m scared. I’m mostly excited to say to myself, “Self, you are going to write every day for the next 30 days.”

In the end, it doesn’t matter if I reach 50,000 words by the end of the month. I am more eager to commit to writing longer pieces daily for the next 30 days. Now, I see what the experience is like. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve updated my writing outline on Prezi.

AND I created an account on NaNoWriMo with a Dashboard and everything to track my progress.

To save you the click, however, belowย is the working title and synopsis I posted on NaNoWriMo. If anyone else is taking on the month of daily writing, definitely comment or pingback! I’ve joined a group of NaNoWriMo writers, and it is nice to connect. ๐Ÿ™‚


The Dim Twilight of Winter’s Night

Author: Suzy Quinn
Genre: Adventure


This adventure/general fiction story follows Evie, a 20 year old young woman who lives on her parents’ farm in rural Ohio, as she emerges from a medical “coma” of sorts after head trauma, which has left her face disfigured.

Evie doesn’t remember who she is or how the accident actually occurred, but upon waking in her parents farm house in late summer 1943, she realizes all is not well. She continues to dream of another life, and this other life haunts her waking hours.ย To make things worse, she feels restless after listening to Erik and the other German POWs, helping on the farm as they share stories of Europe, as well as their own dreams of traveling to Texas.

When Erik is caught in the middle of a recent crime in the nearby town, Evie must decide whether to rediscover her life in the small farming community her family calls home or answer the call to adventure side by side with Erik.

  1. Hi Suzy, congratulations on your preparation for NaNoWriMo! I’m confident you will be successful in reaching your goal this month. Thanks for inviting us to post our own NaNoWriMo plans. I have decided my goal will be to write SOMETHING every day, preferably at least 500 words, toward one of my novel projects. Although 500 words a day will only take me about 1/3 of the way toward the “official” 50K goal for NaNoWriMo, I think it’s a worthy personal goal. Let’s be strong, creative, and productive together! – Theresa

    • Theresa – this is fantastic! You know, I think it is best to tailor the word count and goal. If the challenge becomes to stressful because of the high word count, then it just isn’t meaningful. For me, the process is far more important than the product/outcome. So, yes – let’s be strong, creative, and strong together! Keep sharing your progress and let me know if you post anything to your blog as well. And thank you so much for the words of encouragement! ๐Ÿ™‚
