NaNoWriMo: Searching for the perfect crime....

Once again, I'm desperately working on my Cerri Baker novel. This one, a sequel, will take place during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. And the murder happens at a different Black Hills location.

And I've been selected by my publisher to participate in a collaborative novel—Rubicon Ranch.

And Halloween is almost here. And I have some projects due for my web designing day job. Oh, don't forget the book signing in Pierre, South Dakota, this weekend.

Given all that's going on, it must be time to sign up for NaNoWriMo!

I'm excited about "forcing" myself to sit at the computer and write. A lot. (1,667 words each day for 30 days.... yeah, that's a lot.) My biggest problem right now is narrowing down the ideas. Where should the crime take place? Should it be a murder? What time of year should the book take place in? The Black Hills have numerous beautiful—and secluded—places for mayhem to occur.

So I'm asking for suggestions... Where should Cerri's next adventure take her?

Good luck with NaNo! I'm doing it too this year. Drop by and "buddy up" if you need someone to keep you accountable :-)
