For the month of November, I and my author will be working on our paranormal series, Tales of WOE. Now for the fun stuff, we’ve got some rules to remember… and they go a little something like this:
RULE #1: Complete NaNo challenge and write 50,000 words between November 1, 2010 and November 30, 2010
RULE #2: Remember to feed the kid, yourself, the dog, cat, and muse… in no particular order, but on a daily basis at multiple intervals.
RULE #3: If a stumbling point is hit while writing said words, then stop, drop, and roll… aka, stop forcing it, drop the attitude, and roll with what the muse is saying.
RULE #4: If you’re not enjoying the writing, then you must be doing something wrong… change positions and ask for feedback. (Damn, this rule applies to so many things in life.)
And there you have it, boys and girls. My NaNo rules for my author.
Now for a little something-something about the Tales of WOE world… it’s an onion. A big stinky onion. Everything is wrong for the good guys in the beginning and things are about to get worse. And I’m loving it. Nothing is right and in balance. A long time ago (before humans were even a glint in Big Daddy’s eye), the primordial gods and goddesses made a deal with the big kahunas to keep this world in play. The primordial gods and goddesses were given the opportunity to put their guardians on this plane to work out their differences and either put it all in balance or end it all by enjoying the delights of Ragnarok or Armageddon or the Apocalypse or the revival of Disco. And that’s just the first layer of this big, fat, juicy, stinky onion. Now to pull out that perfect skillet to fry up some delectable dish that brings out the sweetest flavor in that stinky slice o’ onion. Oh yeah—this is gonna be fun.
Take care and happy NaNo-ing everyone!
