It's that time of year again-time for 30 days and nights of creativity, craziness, and many, many words. Ideas are growing, the world is shrinking as people come together to celebrate this event. What is this event?
Why, it's NaNoWriMo, also known as National Novel Writing Month!
As some of you may remember, I did Nano last year and turned out around 20,000 words on my novel Charlotte. That novel is currently under the # drafting/editing process, and I hope someday to turn out the finished product, where I can actually stand back and say, "This is Charlotte. This is my first novel. It is complete and I'm not going to mess with it anymore." But for now, we move onto other projects.
This year's novel is called...Kingdom! And it has to be at least 20,000 words.
I'm bad at summaries, so don't expect anything fabulous, but here's something to give you an idea about what it's about:
Bethany, the princess of Seretina, has a life that most people only dream about, what with the servants and being the princess and all. Suddenly, her world is shattered when her father, the king, is murdered by no-one knows who-but Bethany has her suspicions. After another attack, this time on the queen, Bethany sets out to find whoever is doing this to the royal family. Along the way, she finds a mysterious letter revealing secrets from the king's past, and a common boy she's attracted to even though he could never be her equal. Adventure, mystery, and tragedy abound inside the borders of this kingdom, only to be revealed to those most worthy.
So there ya go. Of course, my novel is in the early plot stages and not all of these events may happen, but I had to give you something, didn't I? :) I guess we'll see what happens.
Are any of you doing Nano this year?
P.S. I took my cbox down again, and this time it may have to go for good. There are just too many spammers and they aren't going away. I'm sorry, guys. :( If you want to contact me, feel free to leave a comment or email me (you can find my email on my Contact Me page). :)
