Just a quick jot between classes to tell you that no, I haven’t forgotten National Novel Writing Month. In fact, it is probably one of the top three things on my mind at present. And as I check in on Twitter, I hear another word being repeated quite often: steampunk.
It seems there is a group of publishers who is very interested in any books in the steampunk genre, and is hitting up any NaNo writers to keep them in mind. I had to look up steampunk to make sure I understood it correctly, and I encourage you to do the same. But apparently it’s one of those new waves–after the current vampire wave dies out.
So before you lock your topic in for NaNoWriMo, check out steampunk.
