NaNoWriMo14 begins at the stroke of midnight. I’ve had eleven months to think about the sequel to “Scrolls of Sion: Rise of the Dark Queen” (You can still get your free copy here https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/434284 ) I went into NaNoWriMo13 wet behind the ears and green and with nothing more than a crudely drawn map and a couple of names. I did not have a story in mind. The story fell upon the page evolving as I wrote it. This year I go into NaNoWriMo14 more prepared. I have my list of characters who survived the first book and I have the firm idea of a story in my head. I have thirty prompts to keep me on line, but other than that I have no notes.
Last year I posted the story as I wrote it. I will not tire your eyes this year. The main reason is I am integrating myself back into the school system after more than thirty years away from it. I will however update how the sequel is coming along and I may drop a few teasers from time to time.
I have also decided I am going to be taking down “Liars, Hypocrites & the Development of Human Emotion” for the time being. I will be doing this at the conclusion of NaNoWriMo14 on December 1st. The book may appear again at some time in the future if I can work through issues I have with the book. I do this despite, or because of a recent surge in interest in the book after a long time dormant. I really don’t feel the book is representative of my writing and visually I want to work out some formatting issues.
Okay folks, that’s about it. I hope those of you that have taken up the National Novel Writing Month challenge have success. Those who haven’t, there’s always next year and I wish you the best in your other endeavors. And with that, at the stroke of midnight tonight I will begin penning “The Scrolls of Sion: Broken Bloodlines.”
