Cometh The Hour, Cometh The Writer

Almost a month since my last post...urgh. Trust me when I say I feel pretty shitty about that.

So NaNoWriMo is coming up. I'm gonna do it. Why not. Each year it seems I attempt it and fail miserably - but I gotta keep going. Especially the years it feels like I have too much to do, or whatever. Got to bull through. I'm stubborn like that.

I have a plan. If it falls through I plan, but I'll think of something.

It's scifi - and kind of a military scifi at that, but not quite. It's about a cyborg soldier; she gets released from a military find that her side lost.

The thing is - the two sides couldn't be more different. Her side - very conservative, all about productivity and industry, no genetic modification, no subtle bionics, none of that. The other side - pretty much the opposite.

It's about how she fits in with this new, different society. It's about how society isn't perfect, no matter how good life is. It's about what happens when a life seemingly on a one-way street suddenly comes across a junction.

It's also, of course, about what happens to the human mind when you take off the blinkers...and the boundaries.

This could be fun.
