I love NaNoWriMo. I've done it two years and found both experiences extremely rewarding. I don't feel I can do it this year for a lot of reasons, including toddlers needing time with mommy more than they need mommy to write a story. This year it's more like NaNoNoMo. So, in brief, if I were going to be writing a story for NaNoWriMo this year, it'd be best summed up as the following-
Time traveling single mom takes on the powers that be to restore the broken time line which killed her spouse, only to realize that though she and her kidlets got the bad guys, saved daddy, and the timeline, that her family really was okay on their own.
Why? Because A. I like time travel. I just do. And yes, it would be totally steampunk-tastic. B. I think there are few motivators more powerful than love, and that when someone is lost, we'd all change space and time to get them back. However, C. Sometimes the person you become in fighting to get back what you lost leaves you changed enough that if you do get it back, sometimes it isn't what you need anymore.
So yeah, that's what I'd write. Anyone else want to write it for me? I'd love reading it too.
Are you going to NaNo? What are you writing about?
