And So It Begins

November is National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is the shorthand version of that. What it amounts to is an annual Internet-based creative writing challenge wherein participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript between November 1 and November 30. We’re almost 19-hours in and I haven’t started yet. Probably, I should post this on the blog and get going on the writing.

Here’s the inspirational book cover one more time…

Everyone wants the latest gossip and news of the province or the next town over. The local kids all think they can join up and be part of the band. The local law thinks you’re just trouble waiting to happen. Everyone is friendly, right up until you’ve done whatever they ask or rid the mill of gricks. They they want to know when you’ll be leaving, how long you’re staying, and why you haven’t left yet. Being a traveling adventurer is great. Being a trouble making scavenger isn’t. The problem is that they’re the same thing and the trick is to get out before the villagers turn on you. This is a story about that life.
