NaNoWriMo 2014 is coming!

In just over two weeks, NaNoWriMo will be here.  My region already has a kickoff party and a number of write-ins planned (I live in a fairly active and social region).  The website and forums have been reset, and there are a number of sponsor offers for participants, including free ebooks from Kobo and BookBaby.

I'm not yet sure what I'm going to write this year, but I have some ideas.  It's a tossup between finishing my NaNo '13 novel, working on Ruby Ransome (either finishing revisions to the first book or starting a new one), or writing a nonfiction ebook.

The ebook is more related that it sounds.  I've kept a blog about planning my 1920s-themed wedding since the year before I was married.  For years I've thought about writing a companion ebook on planning a 1920s-themed wedding or party.  I get so much traffic and so many questions on that site that I think it would have a ready market.  But I've obviously had a hard time getting going on it -- I think the furthest I got was outlining the chapter list once -- so perhaps NaNo could provide me with the jump start I need.

Besides, it might get me excited about writing on the 1920s again!  Not that I ever was unexcited about it, but I mean, excited enough to give me some extra motivation after NaNo ends.
