You may have heard of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, in which participants aim to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. If you're a writer, this may or may not appeal to you. For me, it works. While I try to write 500 words on a typical day, if I don't make it because life interferes, oh well. During NaNoWriMo, I make the words a priority. Sure my house could use a serious dusting right about now, but it can wait.
During this NaNo, I'm working on the stories of the Knights of Stone, a band of gargoyle shifter brothers. Since I've never been good at plotting, but more of a let's see where this story is going to go kind of writer, I'm flipping between stories of three of the brothers. The scenes are rough. Characters don't all have names yet. Yet, it's working in it's strange sort of way. When something develops in one brother's story, it makes me go back to another's, which is helping to shape the characters and this world I've created in my mind.
Are you participating in NaNo? If so, what are you working on?
Here's part one of the series. Part two is in revisions and should be ready for release in a month or so.
