The Road to NaNoWriMo 2016 – Part 4: Looking Familiar?

Things are actually moving, it appears, though I can’t shake the feeling that the current situation is looking an awful lot like that of last year. Am I right in feeling like that? Well, yes and no.

Some parts of the preparation are done, but there still is a lot of tinkering to do.

And – and here is where it’s most like last year – said tinkering will be very much last-minute work. Of course the story’s setting/world has been introduced and is as set as it can be, with the nature of the world being as strange and chaotic as it is and I have a fairly good view of the main cast and part of the supporting cast, both of which will be discussed in the upcoming days, which are the last three days of this month. So, yes, very last-minute, but do I tend to do well under pressure.

Unlike last year, though, the plot outline is taking a clear shape in advance of the writing. As of right now, the first act, introducing the characters and setting the stage, is as good as done and I have a good feeling that, barring any unforeseen complications, the rest will be (at least almost) finished before November begins. The one thing I have to watch out for most of all is getting too many ideas forming in my head – it’s kind of a luxury, I know ^^; – and getting lost in it all, but as of now it’s… No, I won’t say smooth sailing, because I’m semi-superstitious like that… Instead I’ll just go and paraphrase the second most used Star Wars quote of all time!


Epic picture editing skills are epic!

And for now, we rest, for tomorrow we shall continue to tinker our way towards the awesomeness that lies in November! Just a few days now! Almost there! And then… No, that’s a Star Wars quote I’ll be leaving for a bit later … >:) See you next time, everyone! ^_^


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.
