so, I am doing it again, this year. Am I crazy or a word addict? Maybe a bit of both. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for those who don't know) has come again and I am already fully involved. I wrote 6.984 words in the last four days and it was fun to do. I didn't even had to hustle like last year. With all my kids in school till noon, I finally have the time to write the whole morning. I am surprised about myself how much I get done in 4 hours.
Currently, I am finishing my Amadi-project because I like it too much to abandon it. And I don't feel like returning to it after writing another novel. That means I won't be able to start my NaNo-novel before the 12th. I decided to "cheat" a little and count both novels. After all, I began the third part of Amadi (planned 25.000 words) on November 1st and even if it is more of a novelette, I'll get a finished draft by the middle of the month. Then, I'll dig into my brand new, shiny project called "Swordplay". I'll keep you posted.
Oh, and for all those NaNo-ers out there: Have you already donated to keep the fun going for another year?
Finally, here is an announcement. Since I finished translating "Victor's Rage" in time, I will do a special pre-release print run for all people who loved "Ann Angel's Freedom". Everybody who is interested in owning a copy long before it will be officially published, should contact me or leave a comment with his/her email address on this post. I will try hard to get it done in time for x-mas.
Follow your dream to wherever it may lead,
