Something to say.. x

So Brendan asked me to read his novel so far. Which I have been doing. I must say I am extremely proud of him and impressed. His novel so far is amazing and very in depth.
This seems natural to him and it would be great if it could become a career.

I am so proud of you Brendan. Your doing amazing.

Anyway I’m off to make my writer dinner.

Bye for now

Halfway NaNoWrimo

1 Comment

Hi All,Sorry for not updating recently, I have been busy with NaNoWrimo. Which hit its halfway point yesterday. So far, I’m behind by about 10,000 words. There are spreadsheets floating around that calculate how many words you need to do to win the challenge, mine is safely around the 2K mark which I think I can manage.

Thank you to my partner Amy for her post.

I will be back to daily posting either when I reach 50K or on the 1st December, which ever comes soonest.

Thanks for being patient, speak soon.

Brendan’s been extremely busy writing his novel this month. As far as I know (because he hardly talks) he’s doing very well and will reach the target required. He’s enjoying writing this story and it’s something he’s wanted to do for a while.

Will keep you updated.

Progress NaNoWrimo

Leave a comment

So it’s been 5 days of solid writing for the NaNoWrimo 50,000 word challenge. I was on track Saturday and then yesterday I had other commitments to attend to.

Luckily due to the amount of extra words I built up in the previous few days, I only have to add about 200 words to my target for today. I have already done a brief outline of the next chapter and will hopefully get it completed by tonight. Though I have to clear out a full cupboard which needs reorganising.

So you want to know about my book? then see below:

The Unbroken

Synopsis

The tribe he knows and loves is starting to hate him. They have declared open war on a nearby lord. And have also declared not-so-open war on him. They have taken away everything from him his chance at a family and his past. So what will he do to avenge them? Or will he sit back and let them take control of his life?

Characters

Devran Malberry (AKA. Dev) – The main protagonist of the story, he loses a precious thing early on and it set’s him off on a journey that will turn him from a mere man into a legend.

The Seer – The leader of the Herc tribe that Dev is part of. Suspicious and scheming only those closest to him know his real motives for taking over a city.

Lord Richard Somme – Lord of Avile, and legend of his time. Part of the three lords that saved the nation from the underlings.

Harry Seed (Aka. Seedy) – Dev’s closest friend and will follow him to his death.

Page – Somme’s errand boy, but for some reason Richard believes he can be so much more. Training and a path to enlightenment shall follow.

So that’s all I’m giving you!

 

Day 1 of NaNoWriMo

Leave a comment

So I’m actually writing this post on 31st Oct instead of the date of the post for a number of reasons:

  • Need to write 1667 words
  • Need to focus on novel
  • Will probably use blog as an excuse,

I have the plot, characters and locations planned. Just waiting to see if I can commit to that target.

Good luck to everyone attempting the challenge!
