(Those of you not doing NaNo may want to filter these out by subject header, but maybe you’d like to read about what happens when a nutcase decides to write a novel in a month anyway. Will have concomitant craft posts, including one about how you shouldn’t use big ol’ words like “concomitant.”)

I think this should be fun. Especially because I’m not putting any limits on whether this could ever sell or not.
1570 / 50000 words. 3% done!
In other news . . . I found an agent who divides her time between NYC and Marfa, Texas, and she’s asked to see the “first several” chapters of the Marfa Lights mystery. I’m going to send that today. I’m also going to send that book to the MWA contest. What the hell. The year ain’t over yet (except for those who started their spiritual year over at midnight last night!), and I did say I was going to give it all I had to sell a novel or get an agent this year.
I have already written my required wordcount for NaNo today. I may write some more on it if I feel moved to.
Favorite line so far in NaNovel: (actually, the opening line)
We were in the treehouse when I saw the black-and-white police car heading down our street.
