NaNo 2012: Higher Education

Now that NaNoWriMo is underway, I thought I'd share my concept cover and novel synopsis with you. Keep in mind, these things are a work in progress/concept. They're not really a final product and the novel I'm working on is an idea that's been percolating in my brain for a while, but one I haven't exactly worked out 100%.

Okay, warning issued. Here's my synopsis:

Lost soul Daniella York is looking for an escape. Losing her mother to cancer and having her heart broken by high school sweetheart, Italian exchange student, Giovanni, Daniella has nothing to lose when she leaves her west coast home for east coast All Saints University. An idyllic and beautiful campus, Daniella's spirits are instantly lifted by ASU's stunning location and lovely old world charm. But ASU harbors secrets Daniella cannot even begin to imagine, secrets she somehow falls head-long into when her fate becomes entertained with that of sexy upperclassman, Andrew McCohen, and his quirky gal pal, Virginia Douglas. Struggling to fit in and pass her classes while maneuvering through a maze of unimaginable intrigue, Daniella struggles to learn who she is amid a chaos she could never have imagined.

There you have it and so far things are better than I could have expected. I hope they keep up that way, but I've decided that I'm not going to let my insecurities and doubts mess this up for me. Even if I start to hate it, if I can't figure out where it's going, I'm just going to power through and finish this. Fingers crossed it works like that and I don't sabotage myself.

Alright, next time I'll tell y'all about the kick-off party. For now, I'm off to work on my novel and spend some time with my man (It's the poor guy's only day off this week). If you're doing NaNoWriMo, good luck!


  1. Love the concept! I'm already dying to read it--though I'm pretty sure I'll never get to since it IS nanowrimo and not exactly representative of your finest work. So I guess I'll just say good luck, and keep powering through!

  2. Thanks, Jodi! You're probably right, NaNoWriMo never represents anyone's best work. lol. Maybe if it doesn't suck too badly I'll edit it. Otherwise, I'll call it what it is and move on. The thing is, I don't even have a plan or an outline of any kind. I'm sort of doing the fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants thing and I'm having a good time with it. It's very liberating to get it all out there, crappy or not.
