Dusting off and NaNoWriMo

It's an update...ha! but since I don't think anyone has been reading this I can view it as a fresh start - notice my deviousness...

So - I'm not sure whether I do a re-introduction...ah, what the hell...

I'm a 28 year old geek girl from Aotearoa(New Zealand) who is far too obsessed with Firefly, Serenity, Joss Whedon in general, Battlestar Galactica, dinosaurs and so much more that I won't go into. I have written a novel but have yet to send it off due to an undying fear that I will be held accountable for corrupting young children with bad writing (subtle dig at someone who remain nameless...maybe...)

I have a constant need to be reading or travelling or something...I have an unhealthy obsession with many weird and wacky things...tartaned goldfish being one of them...oh and occasionally acting as a velociraptor...I mean, who doesn't want to be a raptor at one point in their life.

That aside - I have nearly finished my teaching course but am still very undecided on whether I will actually will go into teaching but that is neither here or there. The main point for restarting this little old blog here is because I no longer have the constant stress of lectures and assignments so I can readily update without pressure but also, NaNoWriMo starts at midnight tonight and I am looking forward to getting my fingers to do some more typing. This is the fun kind of typing - hopefully since this is the first year that I am attempting this.

For those of you who don't know what NaNoWriMo is check this link
Basically, over the month of November your aim is to write 50 000 words for a novel. So, no real pressure there, right...?

So this blog will help me track my process while letting everyone see the spiral of insanity that I often get myself into...don't's all in the name of fun...

This is the part where I tell my readers to strap in for the bumpy ride...don't worry though, I always provide food and entertainment. Oh, and you may want to keep your hands inside the cart at all times.

Oh and any tips or ideas are welcome!
