During the month of November writers go crazy and join this writing thing called NaNoWriMo. As a reader you may or may not have heard of it. NaNoWriMo stands for National November Writing Month. The goal is for writers to stop being lazy and sit down in a chair and write an entire novel.
Well, not really an entire novel. The goal is fifty-thousand words, and depending on the genre the author writes in that may or may not represent a full novel.
I write in the fantasy genre, which on the low side is ninety-thousand words, so way short of fifty-thousand words. Anyway, I am participating this year. In the past, I always ran into obstacles with holiday events during November, such as preparing for Christmas music with my church choir, getting the house prepared for family visitors for Thanksgiving, pulling out Christmas decorations, plus that work thing. This year, let's say because of Covid, I have time to write. Lot's of time to write. Yes, I'm participating in NoNoWriMo this November.
What book am I working on? Many readers wonder how and why the teens from Aloheno were sent to Earth. I'm writing the pre-quel to Eclipse of the Triple Moons, which will detail King Haskell's story of how he survived on the streets as an orphan and transformed his life to king. It's going to be a great story (I like it already) and in January I'll let you in on a way for you to receive the book for free. Stay tuned.
In other news, I finished the fifth edit of Zita's Revenge, and found a few minor changes and grammatical errors. The next step is to have my beta reader do a read and find blatant errors I missed, or places where I didn't add enough informaion to paint the picture I thought I was painting.
Seven weeks to the release of Zita's Revenge.
