Happy Halloween, everyone!! I hope you’re all enjoying this most interesting of holidays. I’m writing this to give you all a heads up that November may be a bit slow for me.
I apologize in advance if my posts become a bit shorter or a bit more scattered until December, but it will be for great reason!
I, of course, am participating in NaNoWriMo! I love this event, even though I’ve only completed it 1/5 of the times that I’ve attempted it. I find the challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days quite exhilarating, if potentially difficult.
I’ve had some trouble choosing which of my many ideas would get the November focus. I finally decided that I would choose a story that focuses on a world-wide legend, bringing it to my new town and localizing it as much as possible.
I don’t want to give away too many details, but I will divulge that it involves a very popular and old myth that has a world-wide span.
I hope to discuss the matter more as the month goes on, and will hopefully be able to share the entire tale with you all soon!
Also, as an update; I’m currently working on getting last year’s NaNo work to a few agents to see what they think!
If any of you are participating in NaNoWriMo, I would love to interact with you both here and on the NaNo site. My username is DameanMathews and I hope to have some new writing buddies for this year’s event!
