NaNoWriMo 2016. Log 6: Better!

The amount that could have been written might have been a fair bit higher if I hadn’t spent quite a few hours distracted by both the “usual suspects” and figuring out how to remove ink from a leaking printer cartridge from my hands. Still, at the rate it’s going today, it looks like this day could well be treading in yesterday’s footsteps and have around 2,000 words to its name! It still won’t be enough to fill up the gap left by day two, but that’s fine. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. I’m writing what I can and if the last few days are any indication for the future, I have a feeling I’ll be back on track before too long. Feels good.

Right now the prelude is as good as done, turning out very close to what I had imagined, so now it’s back to where I left in the story. I won’t give away too much, but things are really beginning to heat up in there, and we’re not even close to the story’s climax! I’m also noticing that I am getting more used to writing humour, which is of course a vital part in getting this story right. While I’m still very much testing these waters and it’s far from a cakewalk, I have a good feeling about where it’s going.

Overall, despite the obstacles, definitely not a bad day, today. Let’s see if we can make it even better! ^_^



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.

Hi! ^_^
