I'm participating in National Novel Writing Month this year, and am actually keeping myself relatively on target. You can follow my progress here, or with the little widget on the side bar.
As for what I'm writing about? It's a science fiction novel about a moment of change in the unchanging history of a generation ship, with centuries of travel between the nearest star. It is about how the seemingly simple act of changing course has vast consequences for a people whose concerns cover not just their own generation but of all the rest to come.
Wish me luck.
