What can make 176 nine-year olds stand up and cheer? What makes them giddy with excitement? What on earth could get them to voluntarily write during LUNCH?
NaNoWriMo notebooks, of course!
These cute, small (3.5" x 5.5"), 200-page notebooks did it! ($1 each from Staples.com...) It's absolutely amazing to have them come show you they've written another page of plot ideas or developed a great villain for the novel they haven't even begun writing!
Meanwhile, I've planned my MCs except for the name for my librarian...she's almost 50, miserable with her lot in life (which is part of the plot!), and anxiously awaiting the day after her 50th birthday when her dreams will come true (so long as the MC, Fortune, makes the right birthday wish). Any suggestions to a great name for this unlucky lady?
