Hey all! My name is Becca and I've been writing ever since... well, ever since I can remember honestly! My grandmother taught me how to love writing and if my books were ever to get published, she would definitely have a spot for one of the dedications and acknowledgments.
I've done NaNo it seems for two years, though I believe I participated three times. I just can't for the life of me remember what I tried to write (and failed to, obviously) in 2011. Regardless, last year I won for my first time I think with 50 minutes to spare!
This year, I will be doing reverse NaNo, because I happen to have a good weekend to write hopefully a lot and I know the end of my month will be crazy busy! My novel has gone from dystopian originally to a mix of dystopia and fantasy, and finally to plain 'ol present day with fantasy and this is the third rewrite from scratch, only keeping powers and names of the characters. But it's my baby. And though I have many other ideas for various novels, this one's been with me the longest and I think it's here to stay. It's the one I've put the most energy into and I think if I could just finish writing this novel, and even if I never get it published, I would feel accomplished.
I live in a small college town in the Midwest and I love it. It gives me inspiration after inspiration to write, especially the cute little coffee shop in the downtown area. I'm studying to become a high school English teacher and I hope someday to move to Europe, specifically Greece or England.
If you think what you've heard is kinda interesting and want to talk to me, feel free to message me and we can talk about this crazy writing thing we like to do! :)
