What in the "NaNoWriMo"?!

*breathes a heavy sigh of.... exasperation(?)* I don't even knowwhat that sigh was. :P I have officially decided that I'm going to do NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

And I'm solemnly serious with all of those O's. :P I just don't know if I'll be capable of doing it.
BUT, I will for surely give it a try!
(If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, here's a link of my old "about NaNo": "NaNoWriMo".)
My NaNo blog: Bookie's NaNoWriMo. YES, my NaNo blog is NOT updated from last year. It still has Bookworm4God as it's logo, so oh well... But yeah. :)

I already have a title and plot.
Title: The Petals of Rose
Plot: "A foster-girl named Roseis visited by a "counselor", from a certain organization consisting of scientists who want to analyze the student body. Apparently, the sixteen year old girl has a perfect personality to attend this picky school, for she's one of the few hundred chosen. While she's trying to get used to the fact she's not alone always anymore, she's trying to discover herself, but the only way to do that is to follow God and His purpose for her in life.
Pretty soon, she makes a couple new friends, one being her "guidance counselor", and the other being her counselor's nephew. She falls into a habit of journaling her thoughts every day, and expressing herself around her new friends-- but most definitely not around her abusive uncle, who's been hiding crates in her room from who-knows. This mystery has got her curious and she'll do anything to make sure that hatever she's become "involved" with, isn't illegal.
Rose's interesting life is turning upside-down one place, and right-side-up in another. But with the helping hand of God, it'll be perfect in the end.

I hope it sounded interesting. You guys tell me what you think. :) i already started it about a month ago, but the reason I do NaNo is for motivation. I haven't gotten past eight pages. I kind of need a goal for this month to actually work through it. I was capable of finished Cured, I can be capable of finishing this book too.

On another note, I've added a couple more pictures to my photography blog, so check it out, por favor. :)

I've considered NaNaWriMo before, but last year was really my last year with nearly enough free time to even consider it! Hope you're able to write this novel (period!) and that it would greatly glorify God.
