Tick-tock…tick tock…

Tis the eve of NANOWRIMO…are you ready?

Tonight I will be going over the final details on my book idea, making sure each characters character is fitting, and hoping that New York will get another W…sorry, got distracted there.

Now, moving on, here is an idea of what the plot of my book is:

Nathan and Dorothy Warner own a farm, which provides food and money for themselves and their two daughters, Cate and Robin—who is actually adopted.  The Warner farm is in bad shape.  The barns are falling apart, the fences need mending, and the chicken coops are leaking.  Due to bad crops and a back injury, Nate Warner is unable to fix his place up himself or hire help.  One day, a young man named Joseph Collins, shows up who is willing to help the Warners get back on their feet.  Cate is quite taken by him, but is shattered when she learns that his father owns a business which has been making offers to buy the Warner place.  Has Joe been lying to the family about his intentions, or is he sincerely trying to help a family in need?

The Novel Ends

As soon as one saw the other, they began to cry.  It was a strange thing for both of them to do at their age, but it could not be helped.  For all of what their past holds, this moment seemed so surreal.  What Broderick dreamed of the most when he was a child was no longer a dream, but reality. “You made it, brother,” Farerick finally said, and embraced Broderick with a smile.

Well folks, tomorrow is the last day of NANOWRIMO, and I hope everything has gone well for all the participants.

Now then, I have been waiting a whole month to say this.. Ehem… I WON! Ehem…thank you for listening.

It was a long/short month, for sure.

My final word count was 61,274.  This is the longest book I have ever done in my life!! Twenty-Six chapters, 374 pages, and I think I like them all. (I hope I like them all).

Here is a quick summary for you:

When Riverwood is in danger of going into war with the goblins, the ill-stricken king calls for his finest Horseman, Broderick, to lead his men to fend off their enemy.  During this time of preparation, the king dies, bringing forth his son, Deyorn, to the throne.      
Now king Deyorn—with bitter emotions towards Broderick—and a little persuasion from one of the local lords—decides not to send the men into battle.  Broderick must now fight with himself whether he should follow his king’s orders and have the possibility of his homeland going into desolation; or disobey and  have the possibility of being discharged from his position.
 

And that is it.

Now, I know NANO is over, but that doesn’t mean you should stop writing.  Keep at it!

10/31/14: It Was a Dark and Stormy Night…(No, Really)

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 9.57.29 PM

 

I never thought I would work so hard in my life.  It was long days, trying to convince everyone that this was the right path to take.  I know it is going to be hard, I know it is going to be painful.  I worry for my life, for the life of my little brother as I watch him sleep beside me.  We both know what the outcome of this fight could be, but in the end, we remind ourselves what the cost will be if we cower into the shadows as they wish.  I wonder what the future holds for us when we cannot stand together like brothers in arms? 

(Excerpt from my novel this year)

Is everyone ready? Good luck and happy writing!!
