Less than a week and counting!
I am looking forward to this year’s NaNoWriMo. It’ll be the first one since I started college two years ago. With nothing filling my spare time outside of work, I’ll be committing to torturing my characters as they try to find their way through mountain passes and dragon lairs. Loads of fun for me! *evil laughter*
At the moment, I don’t have names for my adventuring party. There’s no real title either, so I am going with what this one will be: a dungeon crawl. Following AD&D rules to an extent but definitely rolling the dice to see what happens next and how badly they screw up. *evil grin* This will, fortunately, be taking place in the world of Have, my own world where most of my fantasy writing takes place. So, yes, this will have anthropomorphic creatures rather than humans and demi-humans. Anyone who knows me will understand the reasoning behind it.
The only names I have are for the monarchy; King Yoseph and Queen Katrina. The names for the adventuring party are eluding me, for now. But, they will come about sooner or later. I hope sooner so I can do more with their set up before NaNo starts. At least I know what species each will be, so that part is out of the way.
I do have an idea of what is going to happen and in what order. There will be two primary points which will get them to the artifact they need. I also do not know what that artifact will be. But, that can give a bit of mystery to the story while the characters discuss what it is they are seeking.
The best thing is the first seven chapters have already given me the set up for the adventure. Chapter one will be problem which will require the artifact. Chapters two through seven will each character coming into the story. From then on, it’ll be a mystery even to me as to what goes on before the reach way point number one.
Good luck to anyone who is taking on this crazy challenge! Better stock up on your writing munchies. Oh, would someone please send me about 50 bags of Jelly Bellies? Those are my favorite writing snack.
