NaNoWriMo Done!

Sorry for the severe lack of updates, everybody, but life has been hectic. After falling sick for four days and having to make up a lot of schoolwork over Thanksgiving Break, I focused the rest of my attention keeping up in NaNoWriMo, and a few hours ago managed to finally pull it off, having written 20,000 words in the past three days. I surprised myself. The Divine Madness of Kings is far from complete, however; 50,000 words ended at a perfect stopping point, between what I see as two halves of the book, the first half dealing with Darien’s early life and the second half dealing with his later life. Most of the book as it is written is awful, and will need extensive editing, but some parts are gems. The character of Darien himself is fascinating, and I think anyone reading the book won’t know whether to hate him or love him. I plan on finishing this novel during Camp NaNoWriMo next year if it exists, and if not, then I’ll still try to have a draft done by August.

Now that that’s over, I will be turning my attention to finishing editing The Libel of Blood, with the hopes of finishing that in late December or early January, and releasing it shortly after that. Following that, I will shift my attention to the stories in Dark Aeons, and try to have that ready for release as a free e-book in February. After that, my focus will again move to Tal’kan, which I am very excited for. Now that I am back in the real world – or will be once my exams and papers are all finished – hopefully there will be more updates!

That’s all for now!
