A sorta fairytale

A secret school of Magic. A dying prince, sole Heir to the Throne. A lurking evil. All thrown into what we like to call “postmodern fantasy.”

The Book currently totals 41,798 words. Of the three parts outlined, only part one is partially complete.

But this is November, known to many around the world as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The goal is to write 50,000 words in one month. And Fae and I are going to take it on. In 50,000 more words we could get well into the second part of The Book and make great steps towards finally completing it.

Due to other time commitments, neither us have ever attempted NaNoWriMo before. But, since we’ve both been thinking seriously recently about a career in writing, it’s time for us to try.

I really shouldn’t be further distracting myself from the 3 essays I have for grad school, but in truth I have more passion for this than I can ever even dream of having for my MA program. Plus, with two of us, it’s only 25,000 words each and we wrote that easy in the first weeks we started.

Wish us luck!

    Ooh, sounds exciting! Good luck! Keep us updated.

    …Now back to writing my proposal, which is what I should have been doing instead of checking up on blogs (it’s due on Thursday–eek!)

    Its not the essays that will get in your way but your ever increasing social life :-D

    Well, I’m assuming that everyone will eventually have to go into hermit mode to finish their essays…

    Also, having foreseen Stargate as a possible interference, I finished Season 6 this morning and won’t watch Season 7 until I’ve written at least one essay…

    You need to hurry up and get to Season 9 as I spent this morning dying in laughter over the first episode, I want to share my joy!
