This year I had a real crack at doing NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month. The aim of it is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. I fell a bit short, making 42,000 words. Still, not a bad effort given the last couple of weeks were spent on doing the final major project for the course I am doing, so it understandably took priority. The story I am calling Stormraven, and is the introductory story to a fantasy series in the work. It was always meant to be a novella length story rather than a full novel, so it fitted in well with NaNoWriMo. Hopefully it wont take too long to finish off.
