It’s one week until NaNoWriMo…

…do you know where your novel is? Mine is located somewhere to the left of my medulla oblonglata.

(Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.)

My novel is post-apocalyptic.

It will not feature ninjas.

It probably will not feature pizza. Unless, perhaps, characters discuss pizza within the context of bygone days, as in Boy, do I sure miss those bygone days when pizza was plentiful and we had electric ovens in which to cook the pizza. Which sounds boring. So no, I do not think my novel will feature pizza.

It will feature zombies (but mind you, this isn’t necessarily a zombie apocalypse).

It may or may not feature gratuitous brain-eating. I can guess, however, that the amount of gratuitous brain-eating would have a direct correlation to my concern over my word count/lack thereof. After all, one of the most common suggestions for getting rid of writer’s block is to describe something in almost excruciating detail.  Brain-eating, IMHO, would trump dappled sunlight on the forest floor or whatever. And if the brains get old, there are many other organs I can move on to. With NaNo, it’s always good to have a back-up plan.

Six days and counting.
