And fortunately or unfortunately, depending on whether you asked me in November or December, I chose to work on this book during National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. This is a month where authors pledge to write a 50,000 word novel in November. On November 1st, I was raring go to. On November 4th, I thought I made a mistake. How on earth could I do this? I must have been out of my mind.
The more bloodshot my eyes grew and the more sleep-deprived I became, I started to see the end of the tunnel. Although I wasn’t sure I could even write 20,000 words at the beginning of the month, during the last week, I started to have fun with it. The more the characters revealed themselves to me, the more I loved the story. The premise I thought was fun–a young woman reinventing herself as a singer of an 80s metal band–my dream as a 16 year old, ha ha! Well, she happened to be a vampire and had no idea that a shapeshifting bounty hunter was tracking her down.
What was even more fun for me was how the characters clashed. Vampires and shapeshifters didn’t mix. Both Devon and Layla approached each other with caution as the enemy they were supposed to loathe. Their taunts were only a ruse to cover the mutual attraction they had for each other.
A forbidden attraction.
