The worldwide creative writing event returns
The National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo is an annual event for writers around the world. Starting on November 1, participants work towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. After having written and published 19 books in 6 years, clearly I don’t have a problem with motivation or production. However, I did participate (on my own) the last 2 years. In 2016, I wrote not one, but three Liquid Cool novels—Blade Gunner, NeuroDancer, and The Electric Sheep Massacre. Three novels in 40 days was a record even for me.
Last year, I wrote two of the Fabled Quest Chronicles novels. My new epic fantasy series is the fourth of my distinct series. While Liquid Cool is like an episodic television series—each book is a self-contained major case, the Fabled Quest Chronicles is a year long trek with each book covering a leg of that journey across the Lands of Man, then into the magical lands.
What do I want to accomplish this time around?
Very good question. Since the last novel of the year will be my prequel to the Fabled Quest Chronicles, the choice is simple: more Liquid Cool. There’s even a new Kindle Unlimited Liquid Cool title: Classic Cyborg! The use some cyberpunkish jargon, the upcoming new main novels are already downloading from my brain. For fans of the series, Liquid Cool Book 6, A.I. Confidential, ended with a jolt. So Book 7 will begin a new arc for our unlikely detective Cruz. So Liquid Cool will kick off 2019!
The writing begins November 1st!
Here’s my question for you:
