I’m participating in Nanowrimo again this year (which I’ve done every year since ’07). It’s an Odd year, so I should win.
I’ve got a grandfantastuous plot this year too! Actually put more thought into it than I did last year… Here’s the run-down of my Nanowrimo career:
07 = Sands of Sanctuary. An attempt at making an original Amplifier story, it failed miserably as a plot because I hadn’t built a very strong world. I won with 67k words.
08 = God Chariot. I’m really not sure where I was going with this one, but it was something about a boy who was the chosen one and supposed to collect these ancient artifacts and create a mecha that only he could use. I lost at 19k words. Probably for the best….
09 = Suicide by Robber. Took a character from an online RP I was doing with friends and remade the world into an urban fantasy setting. I won with 53k. I’m thinking of taking this one out again and rewriting the plot. It was a little thin and weak, but with some help I think it can become awesome. :3
10 = Upon a Star. Girl transported from another world that turns out to be the Dark side of the mirror. It was intended to be an attempt at making an original Amplifier plotline, again, it failed miserably at 38k words on the 29th of November. I was writing pure crack by that time.
11= Essence of Luck. Plot with Porn. But will probably end up being mostly porn. :3 I’ll see how it goes, but I’ve got high hopes for this story. If I pull it off, I’ll fix it up and offer it as an ebook on Smashwords.
In the meantime, Playing the Hero and Symbol of Hope are complete and available on Smashwords and Amazon.
