It’s NaNoWriMo, and for my ninth year, I’ve had a good start. 5,000+ words on the first day, which is a lot for me. After struggling for months with trying to figure out what I wanted to write this year, I finally came up with an idea and worked it out until it was something I was happy to write for my 2018 NaNo novel.
This year I’m writing a fantasy story, but I’ll be testing my abilities to write a believable and a thought out magic system that fits the world and setting; one that makes sense in that story’s universe. It’s my first time creating a dynamic magic system for a novel, so I kept it simple. If I feel like the magic needs to be deeper than I’ve come up with, I can always go back to it after the challenge is over to spruce it up.
The title for my 2018 NaNoWriMo project is: Mistcraft
Every year I write this journal for my readers to journey with me during the November writing challenge. I will be raw and honest about how things are going, explaining details about the story, process, characters, and some of the other things that go into my writing. This year, however, I will be sharing this journal on my personal blog as well as here. It will be the same posts just in two different locations. If you want to enjoy it here, please subscribe to my site, or head to my personal blog, The Paradigm, and subscribe there. With two sites to subscribe to, you can’t miss a chance to read along.
Current word count for Miscraft: 5,071/50,000!
