Hey all, usually NaNoWriMo doesn't work as well for me as the Camp NaNoWriMo events do, however, I wanted to give it another go this year since my (second) current work-in-progress needs around 50,000 more words (the word count goal for the NaNo event) or so before it can be called finished. The particular novel I will be working on, titled Once More, is a fantasy adventure novel that focuses on an older protagonist (around 62 years of age) who is a professor of the history and mythology of the world the novel is set in. The narrative follows this professor and one of his students as they try to track down the Hidden Kingdom that is rumoured to contain great power. It is a mystery that has alluded the professor throughout his youth and brought on adventures in his past that have ended in great tragedy. I wanted, with this novel, to focus more on the internal struggles the professor-protagonist will face throughout his journey (as well as those he has faced in his life so far) but there will be a lot of physical conflicts and dangers that he and his student will also have to overcome as well. Unfortunately, Once More has sat untouched in my drawer for 3 or 4 years so, this year, my NaNo prep will be all about reconnecting with the narrative and perhaps giving in to a little bit of cheeky editing in order to get the previously written first ten chapters in line with my current writing voice (since it was a little different now than it was 3 or 4 years ago) in time for November when I hope to start writing the new material. Who else is joining in the NaNoWriMo event this November? What novel, and prep for it, will you be doing this year?
