NaNoWriMo 2013 was a fantastic experience. I stumbled forward, unsure of my ability to write a decent novel…but fastforward several months, and the book I doubted has transformed into a trilogy! I’m excited to say that I have finished the rough draft of book two. The trilogy will be called Strange Spark. As for the individual books, I have tentatively began calling them Squall Line, Starfall, and Severence — though these individual names could change.
I love the name Strange Spark — it works perfectly to describe the spark which is the source of animal magic in my world. The mysterious villains have access to a different type of technology- and radiation-based magic, one that the animals don’t understand; they call it “strange spark.”
The next NaNoWriMo is only a few months away, and I eagerly await the camraderie, heart-pounding deadlines, and hard work. My vow is that by this time next year I will have 3 publishable novels, complete with cover art! Wish me luck!
