It begins! A new year, a new novel, a new chance to reach my dream. I’m cheating this year, though, because I’ve planned this novel for quite a while now. I’m sure I will still be discovering new parts to it that I never planned for. Also, I’m giving myself a December 31 deadline. 1000 words a day is much more reasonable on my schedule. (I have a career-changing exam on December 1 to study for as well).
Remind me to stop buying books. My queue of acquired-but-not-yet-read novels is starting to burst out of my single cubby bookshelf.
Synopsis for the NaNoWriMo project:
The Fidellan queen has been replaced by a doppelganger, her soul evicted from her body by a dark magic that can only be defeated if Prince Derig finds the key. With the help of his magic locket-compass, he discovers the rather obtuse yet alluring Saria along with her wise-cracking crow and unruly, rebellious shadow. Together, they brave the wild country of Fidela, meeting with a cast of diverse characters and arcane puzzles that will bring them closer to saving the queen, the realm and to each other.
