So. NaNoWriMo, anyone? (Anyone participating this year? Mary, Mary, Brittany, Tiffany, mom?)


Title: A Thirst for Death
Genre: YA Mystery
Plot: 10 years ago, the Chicago suburbs were terrorized by a serial killer. People of all sexes, races, and ages were brutally murdered; the only thing connecting the murders were small designs drawn with the blood of the victims. After 10 deaths, the killing stopped--until now...

Ray's mother was the tenth victim, and the most violent, grisly death. When he hears that new murders by the same killer are occurring, he begins to have violent nightmares of his mother, begging him to find her killer, as she's killed again and again. Before long, the 17 year old becomes obsessed with making the nightmares stop--even if it means he has to do what the police haven't, and find his mother's killer...

As he pursues a seemingly futile search, the deaths are beginning to get more violent and occur more frequently and closer to home. With the help of a suspiciously enthusiastic tattooed librarian, the lawyer sister of a recent victim who has an eye out for revenge, and a close friend with some secrets of her own, will Ray be able to find the killer in time--or will he be the next one to slake the killer's thirst for death?

*steals plot just to be contrary* :P
i have said i would do NaNoWriMo over and over again, but i never do, so i'm not going to make any promises in this, perhaps the busiest year yet. Plus school has sapped me of most creative impulses.

Woo! Don't worry about having a plot... I went into my first year without one and made it out with +50,000 words. Never managed to come up with a plot, but I still had 50,000 words that I didn't have before. :P

Oh fuck, that's now?!? Ye gods, I'm never going to get that done... This is like the fourth year in a row I have missed, and I might have even had time this year. And I have no idea how I keep missing Novembers, since my birthday is in Nov...

And I just realised you're from Chicago. Trade ya hometowns for a couple of months? I've been wanting to visit Chicago, being a huge Due South fan.

Haha, you still have half a month, no worries... I missed it in 2002, but I did it (and won) in '03, '04, and '05. Actually, last year I wrote the 50,000 words in 10 days (I still don't know what came over me).

Haha, sure, I'm up for a little hometown swap--although I'm currently living in a very rural area for college. Where in Finland are you from? (You ARE from Finland, right? I'm not just pulling that out of my ass? :P)

Well yeah, but like I can come up with an idea in two weeks...

And yes, I am indeed Finnish :-) Southwest Finland, Turku to be exact. The oldest city we have :-)

Hey, I came up with my idea in a day... it took some work, but I managed it. Two weeks is plenty of time! :)

Hah! I was right! I've actually heard of Turku before... Finland is one of the places I really want to go. :P
