I'm Actually Doing This, Peeps | #NaNoWriMo2015

This will not be my first novel.  But it will be the first I've written in ONE MONTH.  AHH!

I have always wanted to participate in #NaNoWriMo but never had a plotline that I was attached to enough in time to sign up and dedicate to writing hardcore the whole month of November.

But then, last week, while I was at work, an idea came to me...  And lo and behold, it was just a little over a week until November.  I was in love with the storyline, and the characters were speaking to me, begging to be written.  I was determined.  I am going to do #NaNoWriMo this year!!

This last week has been major cram-planning my novel.  I have the synopsis and plotline down.  I've picked out character models, and have really worked on getting to know them personally.  They're each so unique and I love that I get to write their stories.

So beginning tomorrow, I will dedicate an hour every day (or however long it takes) to writing 1,667 words per day for the month of November.  I CAN DO THIS.  I may need encouragement here and there, peeps;)

Oh and I'm on the NaNoWriMo website.  My username is LiteraryRaindrop.  Add me as a writing buddy!

Title: I Cannot Fathom

Main Characters:
Fathom Brooks
Xaquerie Niven
James Bowen

Fathom Brooks is a recent graduate with a journalism degree and is eager to begin her career after just getting accepted as an intern reporter at one of the city's largest newspapers.  But no sooner does her job begin that she suddenly receives a mysterious package from an anonymous sender.  Inside the package is the first chapter of a story.  A story that will only continue in being sent to her if she chooses to accept the mission that the anonymous writer is sending her on: to edit the chapters and publish them in her column at the paper.  Once she agrees to it, Fathom receives a chapter a week in the months to follow, until the last chapter bears a threatening message.  


Are you participating in #NaNoWriMo this year?  Is this your first time?  What's your novel about?
Comment below!  I'd love to hear your stories.


  1. I AM DOING NANO! It's not my first time.... I've done it 3 times and won twice. But yasss I love it. I am terrible at synopses (you are obviously not.... that sounds like an AWESOME story) but mine is about a shepherd boy, a prophecy, and an island doomed to darkness unless he can find the stuff of legends to try to save it.

    I'll add you on NaNo... I'm AgentChase. :-)

    1. Yaassssss!! Got your buddy request! Your novel sounds intriguing!!

  2. I'm not doing NaNoWriMo, but that story sounds really interesting! I love mysteries. I hope you'll publish it once you're finished so we can read it. :)
    And you can definitely make the word count. Go, girl!

  3. Sounds like an amazing story, Raquel! Congrats on the NaNo participation; wishing you ALL the best. :)
