I really need to sort out a character list…

I really also need to edit these. But my time belongs to NaNo. I’ll try and do better next week, after Burning Sky is done (so close).

NaNoWriMo Week 1

Before it all began, here’s where things stood.

NaNoWriMo Goal: Complete Burning Sky
Pre-NaNo Word Count: 45,826

Now onto the first week round-up, complete with non-spoilery snippets.

DAY ONE

Indoor plumbing had long been one of her favourite aspects of travelling through the Dragonlands, but the Sunlords had elevated it to a new level. Ready-heated water at the wave of a hand. Dragons truly were miraculous creatures.

Nera, Burning Sky Chapter 12

Day Total: 4447 words
NaNo Total: 4447 words
Book Total: 50,273 words

NaNo Day 1 and I’m already over 50K. I win! XD

DAY TWO

A chance to assist in an effort to bring down the arrogant swamp creature who had most probably sent him and Estenarven far below the Curse, intending it to end with their deaths? Hmm, let him think…

Khennik, Burning Sky Chapter 13

Day Total: 3126 words
NaNo Total: 7573 words
Book Total: 53, 399 words

DAY THREE

The poor woman. The poor, poor, deluded fool. Mastekh’s heart clenched tight in sympathy.

Mastekh, Burning Sky Chapter 14

Day Total: 4517 words
NaNo Total: 12,090 words
Book Total: 57,916 words

DAY FOUR
Nothing.

DAY FIVE

“Breakfast,” Mastekh announced, throwing the word out like a challenge, with no hint of bubbles or hesitation.

Estenarven smiled as he crossed the room to accept a steaming mug of honey-scented tea. “Thank you,” he murmured, kissing his lover on the cheek.

Cool skin heated beneath his lips and Mastekh’s colour returned with a hint of a green blush. “Oh.”

Burning Sky Chapter 15

Day Total: 4473 words
NaNo Total: 16,563 words
Book Total: 62, 389 words

DAY SIX
Nothing.

DAY SEVEN

“Overkill,” Jesken said, after Wellswen flicked a goose a little too hard and shot the wooden fox straight off the board and over the edge of the table.

“That’ll teach you to pounce so gleefully.”

“It won’t. I’ll be even more merciless next time and cow the rest of your gaggle into submission.”

“Geese never submit.”

“And foxes never die.” Jesken held up her hand and Gharrik placed the recovered fox into her palm. “Best of three?”

“Of course.” They reset the board and hunched over it in intense silence once more.

Burning Sky Chapter 17

(They’re playing Fox and Geese, btw, so no actual fake geese were harmed by Wellswen’s inability to lose with grace.)

Day Total: 9135 words
NaNo Total: 25,698 words
Book Total: 71, 524 words

So far, I think it’s going rather well :D

Daily updates can be found (open to all) on Patreon. Hopefully by the next update I’ll have finished this book and be moving onto the next one.

But enough of me, how are the rest of you doing? If you’re doing NaNo too I hope it’s going as well as mine and that you’re comfortably on track.

And to all, NaNo writers or not, Merry Wednesday!

Patreon Round-Up and NaNo Plans

It’s nearly November, so as usual I have to ask: anyone else taking on NaNoWriMo this year?

I plan to, and I’m hoping to make regular-ish progress reports as I go. They’ll all be posted over on my Patreon page, but they’ll be open for everyone to read, so if you’re interested head on over there and read my writing plans and woes.

I’ll do weekly round-ups here too, probably on Wednesdays.

Speaking of Patreon, here’s what you might have missed since my last link post sometime last month.

(All posts marked * are open for everyone to read. The rest are for patrons only.)

And that’s enough links for now. My eyes have gone all funny.

Anywho, Happy Hallowe’en to those who celebrate, or Samhain for those in the north and Beltain for those in the south. If none of that applies to you, well, Merry Wednesday.

And to all my fellow NaNo participants, be creative, get writing and good luck!
