So, I have something real to post, which I’ll get to before too long, hopefully. (I’ve had it written for a month already, but, eh, whatever.)
But for now, I’d just like to say that I hopped onto the NaNoWriMo train this year, again. Well, more like jumped onto the caboose, while it was only an hour away from its destination.
I started last Friday.
So, obviously, I’m not going to be doing all 50,000 words. I’m not one of those maniacs who cranks out 75,000 words in a 24-hour period (seriously, I’ve seen someone do that). I gotta put my heart, soul, and mind into this thing. Words. Syntax. Poetry. It’s a labour of love.
Slammin’ down those morphemes in just the right way takes time. So, I’m going for a much humbler goal, namely, finishing the story that I started last Friday.
What is this story, you may ask. Well, before I cryptically reveal that, let me recount the way that I decided to write this story.
Well, I had a few options, and really didn’t know what I wanted to do. Hell, even at that point, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it at all. So I wrote down my options, put a number next to each, and went to my summoning board of random numbers. I took a deep breath, chanted the “summoning number” spell, and hit the button.
Well, look at that. A five. I looked at my list of stories and numbers, and thought, really, what rule says I have to go with the first number that comes up. So I deleted that entry, and tried again. At that point, I had somewhat realized that I did, in fact, have a bit of a preference, now.
And what luck. That’s the next number that came up.
So, the winner is…….
KYRETH SAGA ENTRY NUMBER TWO
Ah, yes. The Kyreth saga. What a somewhat mediocre start that had to it. One story, not terribly interesting. Well, it’s all introduction stuff, you see. Anyway, I’m writing the next story in the saga. And it’s coming out well.
I’m probably 2/3 of the way through, and am thinking that, if I have time, I might do an extra little mini-story tidbit thing for Kyreth as well, during the NaNoWriMo period.
All of this will be posted eventually. (Oh, geez, I just realized I should probably start breaking this up into Parts or Chapters or something. Hmm.)
