So it’s NaNoWriMo (that’s National Novel Writing Month), so I’ll be focusing on a fiction project this month. I’m writing a story that takes place in the same world as Strong Fort Spathí, but focuses on different characters and locations. This one is set at Black Ashe, the Wiccan University in Fort Madison IA (or at least my fictional version of it).
I’m excited about the characters and the idea and the story. As of going to bed on the second, I have 7,556 words written so far. Blog posts are going to be fairly short this month, and mostly center around my NaNoWriMo project, but I’ll still be posting the traditional 2nd Friday image prompt, and I’ll still post a response to that on the 3rd Friday. (Because words are words, so I get to count my response sprint as NaNoWriMo word count.)
Good luck to anyone else out there doing this crazy challenge. My personal goal is to beat my all time high word count in NaNo, which means writing at least 112,959 words this November, which is 3,766 words a day. I’m on track so far.
Let’s do this!
