Official NaNoWriMo Winner

 

Winner-2014-Web-BannerNaNoWriMo2014 - Success

On November 16th, 2014, I officially over 50,000 words. My story, which will be turned into five books, was Daygar Legacy #1 – Templar Five. The story is about Vampires in the 14th century spreading a disease that is killing humans at an alarming rate and five knights of the former Templar Knights attempt to make a deal with the devil to try to win the war.

This was a challenging time. Mostly because of my disability, I couldn’t do as much as I wanted. I aimed to finish by the 14th like I did last year. I came close, but I was shy 2 days. I think that is still very impressive. Also, given that I am a science fiction writer and I am doing Historical Fiction, Fantasy, and Paranormal, it was hard at times for me to write. Completely out of my comfort zone. As I wrote, I had to do additional research on the time period to get key facts correct.

I want to thank the creators of Write Monkey, as with their software, I was able to write my story despite my sensitivity to light. I dedicate my success this year to all those with disabilities, whether with Post-Concussion Syndrome, those with Traumatic Brain Injuries, or other disabilities that prevents someone from living they life they want. Writing was very hard for me, and the only way I did it was by forcing myself to do it, even if my brain wanted to give up. My reward is the next two weeks off.

With Thanksgiving coming up, and a few other special projects I am currently engaged in, I am taking a break from this blog. I will come back in December, hopefully to finish up my rivers on the worldbuilding tutorial. However, I will be limited in December. I plan to come back in full force in January.

Special thanks to Nicohle Christopherson for giving me emotional support during NaNo.

RA rough few letters and in the past week, and I start a new week with a somewhat easy letter. It’s a nice load off my mind, considering that this week and next week will be the hardest part of the challenge. Just one day at a time.

From the messages I’ve received, my posts have helped people learn a lot and that makes me very proud, as my goal with this blog is to teach people.
