Let the insanity begin...Again

I had decided that I wasn't going to do NaNo this year. Then an idea swamped me. Okay, it barely dribbled on me because I still don't know what the heck is going on with it.  It doesn't matter. I have a month to figure it out and just ramble around a bit. So what if I have another  Extremely Rough Draft? At least I'll have a draft. After spending so many years rewriting TTD and wasting I-don't-know-how-many days--months--by polishing prose that didn't make the cut, I've come to realize that, for me, it's better to at least have an idea of the complete draft before worrying about prettiness. 

So, this morning I wrote the first 1677 words. I got the opening scene down (funny how most of my books occur to me in the form of the opening scene). After I work on my TTD query a bit more, I'm going to see if I can't cobble together a hook and blurb for the new WiP, the working name of which is Tatterdemalion (many thanks to all of those who answered my question the other day).
