I'm Emily. This is my first year doing NaNo, so I'm kind of nervous about it. My book this year is to be a memoir (please don't go flaming me about that). It's entitled Deep In The Dark and is about my life with mental illnesses. I'm only 22, but I've got a ton of material, and am confident I can make it to 50,000 words. I'm going to a kick-off party for NaNo tonight; I'll post about how it goes. ~Emily

Yeah! Emily is here!


Good luck!

I thought about a memoir type thing, but I'm going to stick my foot out and go with the non fiction. However, I will be sticking close to my life story with the eating disorder and taking from life experience.

I'm hoping to hide a bit of family character traits, in changing them enough so that if I do get published my family doesn't go HEY!!!!!!! even though they will be well represented. *grin*
