NaNoWriMo! Getting in my 1,667 words per day! & some free books, need reviews!

National Novel Writing Month is here. I missed Friday so I’m making it up today.  Will have 50k words by my birthday, the end date, November 30th.  It’s fun and I bought a usb flash drive bracelet off Amazon and though it tends to be heavy where the usb plugs into the other end, I like knowing my novel is with me. Especially when my last computer crashed taking my main book with it.  That one is on the back burner as I work on this one.  I like the challenge and I have some good people in my life who encourage and remind me to write!

Here is the intro for my novel in progress:


People all over the world have been left wondering exactly who came up with the idea behind a new hit reality television show. The creators,who are unknown, found twenty former students from Franklin High School located in California, USA, who failed to attend their 25th High School Reunion in 2021 and offered them a chance to play a game to win 5 million dollars. These people were thrown into a reality television show that would follow their every move and record every sound. It quickly became a show heavily laced with fear. As audiences from around the world watched the first High School Reunion Game reality television show which aired from Friday, May 1, 2026 until Friday, July 31, 2026, it soon became clear that this wasn’t merely another basic reality television show but something more like a horror show. Twists came from out of nowhere keeping audiences on the edge of their seats with most wondering how much of what they were viewing was actually legal. Some thought it was complete fiction while others enjoyed the competitions. Audiences gasped, cried, screamed and fought alongside their fan favorites as the show played out over a 3 month period of time or exactly 92 days. There was never any call in numbers to vote for a particular person nor was their ever aired any information on who created this real life drama series.

It was billed as “A Reality Television Show much like Survivor with a bit of Big Brother thrown in and a touch of the scary from Fear Factor.” While the new reality television show turned out to be the most watched television series in the history of American television entertainment not to mention other countries, it also gave the world a surprise that to this day, people can’t stop discussing. This American phenomenon has spread throughout the World with episode’s from season one airing in over 20 countries. The bottom line now is, it has left the world wanting more. Will your high school class appear next on this new hit reality television show, High School Reunion Games Season 2?

In a world where a new television series lasts 1.2 episodes before being pulled and replaced by yet another new television series that lasts maybe 1 more episode longer then turns to the internet to present the remaining previously recorded episodes, reality television shows are a dime a dozen. Every major channel in America has at least one successful reality TV series. Now competing amongst the big names such as Survivor and Big Brother enters High School Reunion Games.

The first season both surprised and horrified American’s so much that the demand for a second season has been overwhelming for the networks hosting the show. The world is using every tool at their disposal to voice their requests including email to virtually anybody they can connect to the series and snail mail but also plastering requests over major social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and submissions of thousands of images and videos via Instagram. YouTube went down for a full day when it became flooded with so many uploaded videos their servers couldn’t handle the data. New pages dedicated to this hit show and images from the first season flood the internet every day. America’s newest hit reality television sensation has found it’s place in American television history! Will we ever know who is behind the creation of this show and will the answer ever come as to if it is truly unscripted reality drama or a show played by paid actors to look like it’s a real game, like Siberia.

Original Data: 3 months/92 days, Friday, May 1, 2026 to Friday, July 31, 2026, High School Reunion Games, Season One: The Class of 1996, Franklin High School, CA USA, Classmate Game Players: Dale Clarke, Aaron Jack, Todd Hendricks, Zach Lee, Jason Schulman, John Berch, Chris Hammer, Sam Chang, Mark Dawson,Orlando Thomas, Jean Stanford, Michelle Xaviers, Nicole Landers, Anna Koppola, Christina Liu, Maria Sanchez, Caleen Jones, Sarah Myers, Laura Apple, Becky Weaver
