I am NaNoWriMo-ing. I didn't do anything on November 1 because Eddd was over here, but a sudden burst of creativity today around a character who I randomly invented because I really wanted to use the name "Minthoffer" has brought me well beyond the catch up zone.

I am writing a bad sci fi novel. So far, it contains:

  • People with silly names, like Wolfvald, Davod and Adrenalina

  • War. In space, yo'.

  • A streetwise street urchin with his own bank account

  • Hinted at but undetailed nookie

  • Cigar-smoking spies

  • Twins. Lots of 'em

  • Scientific concepts that are total bollocks in the real universe.


Have I fulfilled all the criteria? You decide. It's good fun so far though, I'll be well chuffed if I actually manage to finish this.

What does NaNoWriMo stand for?

YAY IT SOUNDS EXCELLENT!

If you want a beta at any point, please think of me?

Well, you say that. But I'm veering on the side of awful. I think it has major structural issues at the moment, but the whole point is just to produce some words... If I do complete it, I'd definitely like to refine it and if you're volunteering to wade through the awful, you're more than welcome! :D If my fragile ego can take it ;P
