The Road to NaNoWriMo 2016 – Part 3: Whaddaya Got?

Slowly the story develops into more than its bare basic premise. Unfortunately the keyword here is “slowly.” Shards and threads, scattered all across the story exist both in my mind and (albeit to a lesser extent) on paper, surrounding a number of focus points within the story I want to move towards. What’s missing, though, is coherence, some factor that is able to fuse all the loose fragments together and turn it into one solid piece. Normally this wouldn’t be too much of a problem. Last year I managed to use the characters, factions and world – all of which I had very clearly set up in my mind – to make up for the uncompleted plot and write as I went. Right now, I only have a general idea of both the plot and the story’s aforementioned main components. With only a week before the big start, I’m not exactly in the position I’d hoped to be in by now.

Yes, it’s slow going at the moment, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at least slightly worried. Despite that, though, I mostly have a good feeling about this. Last year I had less than a week to set everything up and still came out victorious in the end. Like with many writing obstacles I’ve faced before I feel this one is far from insurmountable. Nothing a good dose of focus and discipline won’t solve, right? Let’s get to work! Or, as a certain Chinese general would say:

More (or actual) progress and details about the story will be coming in the upcoming posts this week. Hopefully you’ll stay with me with as I continue on this road and get my things ready for the big journey in November! ^_^


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
