Today is the start of a new month and that means a start of a new novel. I'll still be working on Sea Foam as I go to try to finish it but I'm going to start writing Nested again.  This is going to be a different version of it though. After reading through my NaNo novel for '12, I realized that this novel was in the wrong genre. While there was nothing wrong with my storyline or my characters, there was something wrong with the setting. So, I went through and changed it. Now, I'm really looking forward to writing this novel from start to finish (hopefully).

I have yet to get started on anything. I was working on my novel that I'm typing out on my cell phone. It's not really a novel I's more of a story for children. There is one little boy in particular that I'm aiming this towards because he has such a hard time finding something that he likes and I'm going to write him something that he will like...I know this kid well enough to write a novel for him. The first book is called The Abandoned City...well, it is for now. Titles on my novels change drastically as I write.

There are a few new things I'm trying this month. The Genre Stretch Challenge being one of them. Another things I'm going to do is get  back into this writing tournament that I abandoned a long time ago. It's on deviantArt and in one of the groups I'm in...I think it's the Writer's Guild. I participated in it once and I loved it. I'm still surprised that I got as far as I did in the tournament. My friend deserves the thanks for getting me back into that. She is the one who inspired me to join again...and I'm really nervous about it (like always).

Well, I think that's all for now. I'm going to start writing and hopefully get at least 3,500 words in today, if not more.

Have a wonderful day.
