Wishing upon Earth and Bone, NaNoWriMo-ing an AlmaMia Novel

I reread the title of this post, and reasoned that whoever turned National Novel Writing Month into NaNoWriMo had to have served in the military (even if just in a past life). After all, it was one of my fellow warriors (in a moment of infinite wisdom or mind-boggling boredom) who came up with the acronym FUBAR, wasnt it? Moving on… everyone knows tangents are the scum of the universe. 

I’m having a blast NaNoWriMo-ing an AlmaMia Cienfuegos novel. My first writing day resulted in 1,685 words. I started writing somewhere in the middle of my outline (perhaps chapter eleven), and after completing a bit over a thousand words, the beginning of the novel came to me…

  2. Freaking AWESOME is a good way to describe that book cover. Just...wow.

    I used to have a friend who did NaNoWriMo. She got me into it one year, but I have so far been unable to complete a novel. Even short stories are a challenge for me, though I have had more luck with those.

    Based on the word count, the first line, and the synopsis, it sounds like you're off to a good start. :)

    1. I do love the fire of the cover, Shelle rocks. The friend who convinced me to join this years has participated for a few years and never finished it, but it doesn't discourage her; it's just a reason to write and to share the experience with others, methinks.

    1. Me, too!!! I just did a little dance. The more I write, the happier I get about having listened to my Piano Man and joining NaNoWriMo to give this novel a chance. It feels right ;-)

    1. First, my Shelle love, your art is a huge part of it. And I like it that way. And yes, my Piano Man is clever and hot and I'm so lucky because (my goodness, his legs are awesome) and he loves all the bits of me that matter most to me. What else could a witchy woman ask for? I totally love him ;-D

    1. I will have to agree. AlmaMia's tales and Shelle's brush get along quite well together. I've been thinking about some witchy tales, too... and I've been thinking cows *cough, cough*
