Nano Update and Title Poll

So it's half way through November and I'm right on the half way mark: See the widget in the top left corner.

I admit it's a crazy mess, but there is a cool twisty story developing that I think will work out well. Right now I'm making clay--once I have that, I can go back and sculpt it into something worth reading!

In the meantime, I'd love to hear your thoughts on a new title. Here's a tentative blurb:

Distressed over Nate's trip with his basketball team (and an accompanying flirtatious cheerleader) to Europe, Casey makes a sudden decision to join a class trip to Hollywood, where she meets up with Adeline, the only other teen time traveler she knows. A field trip, a cocky classmate, and a social network induced misunderstanding of epic proportions push Casey and Adeline together and thrust them into the past... but into who's? Trouble seems to follow Casey no matter what era she's in, and this one filled with gansta's and raucous dancing is no different. Casey and Adeline need to find away back to the 21st Century before they end up in jail with the key tossed and in time for Casey to return to Cambridge and beg a certain worried, angry and gorgeous boy for forgiveness. 

There's more to it than that - a twist I hope you don't see coming in the second half and more trouble for Nate and Casey, maybe more than they can bare...

So what do YOU think it should be called?

NaNo is on and so comes the first pages of a new Clockwise Series book!

Yes, I know, finally.

I'm excited to get back into Casey and Nate's world, but also Adeline and Marco's -- remember them from Like Clockwork? Worlds will collide when Casey and Adeline meet again. You know what's going to happen....they go back in time together... but to when, exactly?

Ha, you'll have to wait and see!

Nate and Casey will have new relationship obstacles to overcome, of course... :)

Okay, here's a hint:

For those of you who don't know what NaNo is, it's short for NaNoWriMo which is short for National Novel Writing Month (link). Every November writers from all over the world commit to writing 50,000 words in one month! 

Once a week I'll give an update on my word count - I hope you'll cheer me on!
