NaNoWriMo 2016: The Zemlja Dosta Chronicles

Buenas Dias
One more sleep till that Friday Feeling Dance~ We can Do It!!

If you're a writer or even an avid reader then you should undoubtedly know what the month of November holds in store.
No, Nope I don't mean Movember haha.

It'ssssssssssssssssss NaNoWriMo!!!
Start Date: 1st November 2016

What is NaNoWriMo you ask?
  • National Novel Writing Month (often shortened to NaNoWriMo, "na-noh-ry-moh"), is an annual, Internet-based creative writing project that takes place during the month of November. NaNoWriMo challenges participants to write 50,000 words (their minimum number of words for a novel) from November 1 until the deadline at 11:59PM on November 30. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to get people writing and keep them motivated throughout the process.
This year marks my First NaNoWriMo ever! I'm so jazzed & just happy to jump in to this already established writer's fiesta. It's going to be awesome, I can't wait to meet fellow WriMo's.

Initially I was planning on typing out a YA Biopunk story filled with awesome kickass teenagers, hybrid experiments, shady scientists & an even shadier organization hell bent on "seeking the truest potential within mankind."

But alas, with the taking on of new clients, my annoying day job {hence the clients, to hopefully earn enough that I can ditch this job in favor of a full time Writing career}---I've had to prioritize my daily time. Especially with the research & worldbuilding involved.

So, like a bolt of lightning down my vertebrae, I realized I already had the perfect Novel to finish:

My very own Epic Fantasy Fairy Tale called The Zemlja Dosta Chronicles
It tells the tall tale of 3 companions. The Unicorn Queen, The Samurai & The Wizard

Acirassa, Eiramus & Hocirne each have compelling back stories & destinies that they've been set on. With twists & turns around every corner, they will most assuredly face their worst fears all the while attempting to prevent an all out war between the realms.

You can find each chapter link & blog post below:

Chapter 5 - The Elven Trials
Chapter 6 - Hocirne's Return

"Omg!!!!!! This was one great piece of writing!!! You my friend are very creative and have a way with words!"CourtneyLynne

Going back & reading everyone's comments was such an EPIC experience, Thank You ALL for the highly encouraging & sentimental words. You will never know just how Much I cherish them!

NaNoWriMo's main goal is to encourage creativity worldwide.

The project started in July 1999 with 21 participants, but by the 2010 event, over 200,000 people took part and wrote a total of over 2.8 billion words.

Meet Chris Baty 
He accidentally founded National Novel Writing Month in 1999, and oversaw the event's growth from 21 friends to more than 300,000 writers in 90 countries
