I'm not really new to NaNo but registered too late in 2008 to still participate. :P In 2009, I did my first NaNo and "lost" with 47k words. However, I also "won" because before I've never written so much in such a short time, half of it during the last week and alone 12k words on the last DAY. In 2010 and 2011, I was successful and intend to be this Year, too. :D
I've got a M.A. in Speech Sciences and Biology, and am looking for a job at the moment. Ultimately, I want to work in Forensics, either as scientist or an investigator.
I started writing in English only in 2007 (I'm German) and it would be the greatest thing for me to at least finish one of the many (novel) ideas bouncing around in my head. I write in the genres crime / detective, drama, (psycho)horror, psychology, and I like to spice them up with romance, love, humor and erotica.
