Every year I say I'm going to do NaNoWriMo and often times don't even start writing or even think about it. It has negative power; the power to make me not think about writing.

This year I'm going to try to do it and finish it.

I promised [livejournal.com profile] heartsways I would write her a trashy novel in the vein of Jilly Cooper's Rutshire Chronicles. Naturally this will also be set in England but less on society and more on an X Factor-esque tv show. I have to avoid local dialects though without serious help. British people have so many accents and phrases that I get confused. I can tell a Geordie from a Scouser now though!

To write "Canadian" all you have to do is make sure you use "grade three" into of "third grade", throw words like "double-double" and "tuque" all over the place and make sure everyone is really polite. Stereotypes to be sure but on Sunday I ate a poutine at Harvey's while wearing a wool & polar fleece hat made to look like a bear. It doesn't get more stereotypical than that.

Obligatory filter poll:
[Poll #1474038]

Also, I have my icons back. So I'm up to 124 icons. (See my pretty new Dannii icon?) I have a few empty spaces so if people come across any nice The Good Wife, Castle or FlashForward icons you think I might like, link me up.
