November is almost upon us again, and once more I find myself drawn to it. Drawn to writing 50,000 words, quality be damned. Nano is about getting the story written, and then the other eleven months of the year is when you edit it into something that is actually good. Or, you know, that’s when you should be editing the novel (hear that brain, editing, it’s a thing you should be on board for!).
Anyhow, this year, I am going to do something different. I am going to write a standalone book, that has absolutely nothing to do with my other two series. And under no circumstances will that book turn into two books, or three. Remnants, as I’ve already told you will be my Nano novel for the year, will not have sequels. Which is new for me, and I’m not entirely sure my brain will agree with once I actually stat writing.
I’ve been doing some slight worldbuilding for Remnants this weekend, like figuring out the actual plot (cause I didn’t actually have one before), as well as my characters names and such! Got a cover made a few weeks ago as well, which you can se en the right.
The hero of our story will be Tryg Morgan. He will be joined by the mysterious Ashes, and the rebellious Ren. They will be travelling on the fantastic, if somewhat flawed (read: rust bucket) spaceship The Vanguard. And of course, they will be on the run, mostly because Tryg did something stupid, and now they have to run for their lives.
That’s all I’m going to tell you for now, though I do plan on sharing bits and pieces as I write it in November. And, if all goes according to plan, I’ll be posting the entire story on Wattpad next year. That will require editing though, so by next year I might actually mean in 2025 or something..
