NaNoWriMo is right on my door and I am NOT ready. I have my basic story down but nothing more than that. So, what am I going to do? Nope, not to give up that’s for sure! I feel that this is a story I need to tell. That this is a part of me and a way I can share a great truth about us as people.
Most of you may not know this but I’ve been digging into my family past, following my roots of my family lines, finding neat and crazy things along the way. And still, I’ve learned so much about myself. I thought I knew who I was and who I wanted to be, but over the last year I’ve found out more and more about myself, I’ve grown and now feel that I’m a better person because of it.
With that said, I thought that this was a story that needed to be told. Not my family roots. But a story about what the past can do to change someone. To find out that their DNA makes up a part of who they are, not just their looks.
This story is set in a high school history class where the students have to spend the year following their roots. I’m thinking of having it following three different characters. I have two planned I just need to work out the three one and start on the plot.
But I feel as if there is the giant countdown and that I’m not going to be ready to answer the door on November first. No matter what happens I am going to kick down that door and do my best at this years NaNoWriMo!
