I’m off to NaNoWriMo! I’ve been kicking around an idea for a fantasy novel for a while and decided that this giant event is the perfect time to buckle down and write a first draft. I can hear it now: Anya, how will you make time for writing a novel on top of everything else?? Well, I’m going to be putting the blog on a break for November so that I can use that time to write! So I’ll see you all in December and if you’d like to follow along with my novel (and cheer for me!) and/or be writing buddies, here I am on NaNoWriMo. Wish me luck!
In case you are curious, here is my current synopsis:
Lonko’s baby brother has been stolen by raiders with strange powers. She is determined to do anything necessary to bring him home and restore her matriarch’s honor.
Neda is annoyed that her training in myrodiancy is being cut short, but she recognizes that the increase in raiding activity has made it unsafe for students to remain in her guild hall. Therefore, all she needs to do is pass her journeyperson test and figure out what myrodiancy trade she wants to pursue for the rest of her life. Too bad she and her friends run into raiders at the first village they visit. Ever the scientist, Neda finds new focus when she witnesses the strange powers the raiders have, unlike any myrodiancy Neda has been trained in. She might as well help this Lonko girl to find the raiders’ camp since then she might be able to figure out how their new magic works.
