I'm Ali, and this will be my second NaNoWriMo. Last year I made it to 50,000 words, but this year I am much more interested in jump starting my creativity then I am in actually hitting the 50,000 - though that would be a great result! I don't have a plot or characters worked out yet, but I do have this vague seed of a story forming in my head. I think I am going to try pantsing it this year and seeing how far that gets me!
- Santa Fe, New Mexico
- Music - I listen to pretty much every genre. I also take voice lessons and am learning to play the piano. I recently became a fan of anime, and I like to draw for fun. I also love to cook, particularly mexican and thai food. Besides that I am an avid reader, and love to escape into a good book.
