NaNoWriMo 2016 -Day 2


Starting word count: 2284

In fairness, my book this year is based on a heavily modified, heavily revised outline for book two of the Arcana Chronicles. The book is called The Empress’ Curse and takes place three months after the end of The Prodigal’s Foole. Those of you who have been following me know this wasn’t the original book 2 of the series. The original book two had a large and important scene that had taken place during the Boston Marathon. I’d just finished that scene when the actual bombings at the marathon had taken place.

It took the wind from my sails for a long time. I tried to rework the novel numerous time after that, but my heart hadn’t been into it.

So this past summer, I outlined a completely different book 2. I have a mess of scenes already sketched out, but the narrative is disjointed.

Nano this year is dedicated to getting a cogent first drive under my belt. Symon Bryson’s return is way overdue.
