NaNoWriMo | Day 3

NaNoWriMo ParticipantThis month, as some of you know, is National Novel Writing Month. We dedicate ourselves to writing 50,000 words in a month. Not a complete novel, mind you, but a good chunk of one. Of course, most of that chunk might never see the light of day, but it pours words onto a page and gets us into the minds of our characters or the conflict of the story. A way to let us know whether or not the storyline is worth investing all the revisions and rewrites in its future.

But I digress.

Because of the fact stated above, I won’t be doing much posting this month. I might post an excerpt here or a rumination there, perhaps an epiphany that comes from this journey, but for the most part there will be utter silence.

Para, The Soul Cycle, Book 2This month I am writing the prequel to the fantasy series I started back in 2008 with my first NaNovel, To Save A Soul. Book 2 of the series, Silver & Iron, stemmed from my 2009 foray into NaNoWriMo. In 2010 and 2011 I wrote 2 romances, so I thought this year I would get back to my fantasy series, especially since the main character type seemed to fit so well with the chaos that is NaNoWriMo.

If you’re curious about the novel idea which has my full attention this month, you can read about it at the NaNoWriMo site on my profile page:

Maybe we’ll see you around?
