Something In The Air

Stepped outside at 7am this morning and the temperature was about 62F. There was a slight nip in the air that felt soooo refreshing after the  blazing Texas Summer we've been having. There was something else in the air this morning. Anticipation of something that comes around once a year.

It felt like NaNoWriMo.

It's a good thing too. I've been drawing a blank as to what I was going to write for NaNo this year. It's really been hard to even think about November this year. Don't get me wrong, I have some ideas floating around in the back of my mind- I always do. I just don't know what I'm going to write.

I should do the responsible thing and work on one of the novels in the Hunt Starfire series. Or, finish the first one and start on the second on. Those seven novels won't write themselves. Or, one of my other partial  projects. I've only got several laying around waiting for a storm of writing to happen upon them.

I really keep thinking about a shiny I've been slowly putting notes down about, but I'm trying to behave and not start yet another new project until I get something finished.

So, I'll let you give me some input as to what I write for this year's NaNo.
  1. A Hunt Starfire novel - the chronicles of a mercenary star-fighter unit.
  2. Finish "Thieves at Heart" - space pirates. Enough said!
  3. Finish "Jameson Hewitt Airship Mystery" - a steampunk mystery set on a transatlantic airship.
  4. Finish "Hammerfist" - A tale of three bounty hunters.
  5. Give in and  write the New Shiny Idea - lost science ship (this one needs a lot of planning first).
There's your options. I'll keep the voting open until the end of the month, and announce the winner in October. Go Vote!


  1. Three bounty hunters? YES! Oh, wait - space pirates? It has to be pirates! Wait - a lost science ship? That sounds awesome...

    Okay, maybe I'm not the best person to ask. LOL Which one is closest to being finished? Go with that one first?


    I've started to get the pre-NaNo itch too, but I'm not participating this year. I need to actually finish these edits and get my novel on submission before I can even think of starting another new one. But next year? Oh heck yeah.

  3. I'm in the mood for space opera, so one of the sci fi pieces would be my suggestion.
