November Spawned a Monster

At Seth's urging, I've decided to do something that I've wanted to do for years. I am participating in National Novel Writing Month...or NaNoWriMo.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThis means that I will be spending many a non-work waking hour pounding away on a keyboard, trying to create something that is not completely crappy (but probably is).

So...I apologize if I am neglecting to call you back/email you back/MSN you back. It's not that I don't like you. It's just that I'm writing a historical romance novel (I've never actually read one) and am using phrases like "burnished copper tresses" and "pulling his kirtle up, he thrust himself into her, again and again".

I am not even kidding you.

Historical romance novel is a great way to get in those extra words, get closer to the 50,000 mark.

And a much better idea than my NaNoWriMo crapola idea.

I've got my nom de plume picked out for if I ever write a historical romance novel: Chastity Mountjoy.

I'm going to stick with the tried-and-true "middle name + street of residence". It works out pretty well for me.

What's a kirtle? Also, what's your working title? Can it involve kirtles, please.
I would surely buy a book entitled "Love in the Time of Kirtles"
