Only a week until NaNoWriMo kicks off.

I’ve now got the plan for the novel written up – around 2000 words of plot details and the order it all happens in.

Getting excited about getting this done.

NaNoWriMo may still be a few weeks off but I’ve start on making plans for it and am actually having a go at it this year.

For it I’m going to have a go at a story that has been floating around in my head for at least ten years and though I’ve always wanted to write it I wasn’t sure if I was up to doing it justice yet. But now with a couple of novels and over two dozen short stories and novellas done I think it is time to give it a shot.

I found an old notebook that held plot idea for it; next step is to rewrite them taking into account various changes. I want the plot all figured out before I start the challenge.

Just a quick blurb on the story.

Alone and wounded, a warrior stumbles through the forest of Vačec hill country. He does not know who he is or where he came from; all he knows is that he has to protect the girl-child he carries. Friend and foe alike are hunting for her. Some want her dead, others have more sinister plans.

The child is no ordinary girl though. Hungry, she feeds on the wounded warriors strength and with each day he grows weaker. There is just one goal he has in mind before the end, to get the child to a foreboding mountain of sinister reputation where it is said the dead linger…

Just a quick update of what is in the works – besides the work on the website.

Secondly, and possibly more importantly, I need to complete Wisdom from the Ashes, the forth story in the Nhaqosa series, The Chronicles of the White Bull. The sooner the better, so that I can update the compilation for Smashwords and make it premium.

I also need once last look over Tears of the Mountain and to start approaching agents to see if I get any interest.
