Well, at least let it begin tomorrow.
That madness will be thirty straight days in a month long marathon of worry, stressing, and writing. November is NaNoWriMo. National Novel Writing Month. I have my plan set, my novel is picked. I’ll be writing a sort of prequel to Black Mask & Pale Rider that leads into the events of the first book.
There’ll be new characters as Shani will meet Clayton “Slowhand” Johnson in this prequel. Pania will meet the women of Mistress Aurela Dorchester’s Boarding House for Girls and Women. Which also happens to be a front for a brothel. Shani starts the journey in Carrollton, Arkansas. Pania, in Chicago, Illinois. The explanation of cold iron affecting elves and how the two elven gunslingers can suddenly use such weapons will be revealed (hint, elven steel). As well, Shani and Pania will have constant companions that will be revealed. A wood pixie named Verit will always be at Pania’s side, and a pseudo dragon named Scales will never be far from Shani.
Sadly, I’m not going to post progression on the blog this year as I’ve done in years past. I’m going to keep everything a relative secret until it’s first draft is complete.
Guns, rapiers, magic. Let the tale of six gun and sorcery truly begin.
Tomorrow, that is.
