Join me in my journey as I write my novel, The Reawakened, in celebration of NaNoWriMo 2013.
I don’t follow the actual official goal of NaNoWriMo. I will not complete my novel by the end of the month, but I will work very hard on getting my word count up, and working on tackling my character development, my setting creation and finishing my plot outlines, in order to create the best story possible.
The Reawakened is my first dive into something other than young adult contemporary. You can read the synopsis below:
Zoey Valentine has a normal life in Brooklyn, NY, going to baseball games with her dad, spending nights dancing at clubs with her best friend, Madison, and trying as best as she can to avoid her next door neighbor and bane of her existence, Ash Matthews. Things are predictable, but normal and Zoey is happy. That’s when the Z virus hits. Within a month, a huge chunk of the population has fallen ill, and died due to this mysterious virus. Before anyone can figure out what it is, or where it came from, the bodies of the victims disappear, all over the country. Zoey ends up locked inside her own house, scared to go outside, scared to let anyone in, until suddenly the bodies reappear, reawakened and its like every zombie movie come to life. Except this time, they’re faster, they’re smarter, and they work together to get the one thing they want. And the only thing they crave, the only thing they fight for, is human flesh.
