This year, I'm rebelling, by writing the last 50k. During the summer, I took part in CampNaNo and wrote the first 65k of my New Adult Paranormal Romance, Cupid. Since then, I've been reading through Cupid, tidying it up a bit and changing the tense from first person past to first person present. I couldn't let a NaNo come and go without participating - especially when two other members of my critique group are taking part too - so I thought it'd be a great opportunity to finish the story off.
As I did during the summer, I will update daily with my word count progress, experiences from the day and favourite line from the day. I'll be using the cute little graphic above that I spent all day Saturday making on Photoshop. *is a total dork *
If anyone else taking part wants to be buddies, you can see my profile here. Feel free to add me! ^_^
And if you don't know what Cupid is about already, here's a quick synopsis.
I'm a Cupid, it's my job to make other people fall in love with each other. Sounds awesome, right? Well you're wrong. I'm not even a fully trained Cupid, I've still got to fill my quota. In just six months I have to make fifty-four couples fall in love. You know what happens if I don't fill my quota? A demon called Abraxas gets my soul, and I become a stature in his collection for eternity. I'm on forty-six … should be simple, right? Now throw into the mix my journalism degree, and my role as a romance columnist for the Uni magazine, Cordelia - 'the tutor from hell', and my landlord threatening to evict me. Oh, and did I mention there's a boy … there's always a boy! His name is Leto, and he's a guitarist in a local bad. Sad thing is, he doesn't even know I exist. At least I have my best friends Rathi and Phoebus the cheer me up. They're awesome. And that's my life. I'm Callie Gibson, and I'm a Cupid.
Don't forget to check back here Friday, when I'll have a review of Kyra Lennon's contemporary romance novella, If I Let You Go.
Also, if anyone is interested, I updated my personal blog yesterday. You can find the post here.
