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.

Countdown to NaNo — Introduction

Participant-2014-Twitter-ProfileNovember 1st is soon upon us, and it is time for NaNoWriMo. Already been a year… what a year it has been. I published one book, which has great reviews. I have met a great number of people who have given me fantastic support. I rubbed elbow with authors, and I now have a voice within the community. A small one, but it is there.

It was last years NaNo that convinced me to become an author once more. I didn’t just complete it, I annihilated it. 50,000 words in 14 days. Will I do it again? I don’t know. I know I’ll get 50,000 words. Maybe in 40 days, maybe in 10 days.

Kickstarter Update — Daygar Legacy Titles + Supplements

daygar legacy coming soonNot exactly big news, but important none-the-less. I have mapped out the names of my first five novels. These are subject to change, but help me know the direction I am going and makes it a bit more real. This whole thing is real for me, but with writing, things can always become more real when you are first starting out.

I won’t be listing what they are about, as these novels will be between 30 – 100 pages, and won’t have a lot of lot of description that wouldn’t ruin the story for you. However, based on some of the titles, you will be able to gleam some story off of it.

Daygar Legacy – Chapter 1 Part 1

daygar legacy coming soonAt long last, the first part of Chapter 1 is available for view. This has been 4 years in the making. The purpose of this is to show those who support my Kickstarter campaign what they are investing in. Admittedly, it is with mistakes. It is only a first draft and could use the hand of a professional. However, I am very proud of how it came together and this is just but a taste of what the rest of the novel will be like.

The first book is called Templar Five. This book explores what that means and will set the tone for the rest of the series. A lot happens in this short text. This is to support my Kickstarter campaign so everyone can see what they are investing in.

A to Z Challenge Reflections

A-to-Z_Reflection_[2014]Ever hear the phrase, “bit off more than you can chew”? I think that is the theme for me. I chose a hard topic and was successful, but wanted to start in March and finish up in two weeks and leave April as a way to catch up on things I’ve fallen behind on.

That is not what happened.
