Sooooo, I’ll admit, I kind of forgot about this until I saw something on Facebook about it. Whoops.
But I’m giving it a shot!
I honestly feel like I should. I’ve been pretty successful in past NaNoWriMos, and last November I did pretty abysmally. So I’m going to have some fun and create a new world and some new characters and just write a little bit every day, and see where I get.
I’m going a bit different from my usual fare with this novel. It’s a fantasy/romance, and if it goes well I will likely put it up for sale on epub. Chris of binary expletivesuggested that I just name it SEXY WEREWOLF TIME, but that wouldn’t be any fun.
Oh. Yeah, forgot to mention. There are werewolves. Everybody is werewolves in this story.
I don’t know much about this story yet; currently it’s just kind of falling out of me. What I do know, however, is the following:
- The sexy hero is going to have the sexy name of Roland Ironfury.
- Someone is going to fight somebody and they will turn into werewolves, because everybody is werewolves in this story.
- The heroine’s name is Mikaia Farflame.
- Everybody lives in the desert. Well, at least the story will take place in a city in the desert. And everybody is werewolves.
- Roland will have been sent to kill Mikaia… but of course, he’s going to fall in love with her instead, because this is a romance novel.
- Everybody is werewolves.
FUN FACT: This is what comes up if you decide to Google “sexy werewolves.” *
But yeah, as far as SEXY WEREWOLF TIME** is concerned, that’s really all I know. Pretty much. I might be a dear and put it up on Fictionpress for a time, who knows.
I’m a lot more cheered up after the employment debacle from the other day. Several friends gave me tips about local places that are hiring, and I sent my resume and cover letter to several more places offering to proofread or edit and whatnot. If nothing else, it looks like I (might) have a guaranteed job in August, so that will be great. I feel so useless not having anything to do right now. I’ve ALWAYS had a job over the summer, and most winter breaks, and to not have one really stresses me out. Yeah, I do enjoy the ability to stay home and play video games*** all day, but I do want to be able to pitch in for groceries and not have my rent wait until fall loans come in and, you know, be able to go to lunch with a friend without them saying something like, “Hey, I’ll pay, let’s go get something to eat.”
At any rate, I’ve had such a long string of bad luck lately, things are sure to be looking up soon, right?
* No, seriously though, DO NOT Google “sexy werewolves.” It brought up a lot of other things, too. I – I don’t – why?!
** ONLY A WORKING TITLE I SWEAR
*** I did briefly consider writing a series of posts about my experience with Singularity. They would be titled “KAYLA SCREAMING FOREVER.” I might still do it, if anybody begs me hard enough. Or makes puppy-eyes at me. Or just shows any amount of interest.
