I'm a writer/editor who has worked in nonfiction but never in fiction. Publishing a well-received YA novel, however, is my dream. NaNo forces me to write fiction regularly, which is the first step toward my goal, as normally my family, day-job, and volunteer work consume all my time. Can't wait for Nov. 1st!
