Day 8 – A party, a palace and more!

Palaces, Parties, and Voting – I mean… Roman-style voting… More inside!

Happy Election Day to my Fellow Americans – If you haven’t voted, go now! Polls are still open for at least another hour in most eastern states and several hours in the midwest and western states – every vote counts!

Now that’s done, we can return to our regularly scheduled blog post! Big time progress today thanks to a train trip, and I can announce we’ve hit the 14,000 word mark! Hurray! Also, I’ve gotten the final drafts back for one of the two illustrations, and the second draft back for the second of the two illustrations. Much excitement for me I assure you!

Anywho, goal for tonight is 15,500, which places us 500 ahead of Day 9’s NaNoWriMo2016’s goal, and thus gives me a comfortable bubble to work with as needed.

Day 7 – Airships and More Airships!

Working hard and falling behind – See what’s happening in day 7 of NaNoWriMo2016!

Hi everyone!

An excellent description of how my word count feels today. Crashing and burning.

Finally got some good solid time to sit here and type, but I’m incredibly distracted today. I’m about 2k behind schedule, and it’s really hard to find the motivation to continue right now. Fortunately, I’ve managed to finish Corbus’ chapter, which means I can start on a new one, which always helps!

Word Count (as of 8:35 pm) 10,622 9,304 words – Goal Tonight: 12,000 (eek)

Day 4 – Courtroom Problems

7 Thousand words hurray! Read more about new illustrations inside, too!

Hi all, Day 4 is hammered down and ready to go.

So some exciting news today! I got the first glimpses of the two illustrations that will be included in Steel Praetorian, and boy do they look exciting. Very action packed and fitting in with the aesthetic of the earlier novels. I’ve included an illustration below so you can see the style of the artwork. Illustrations aren’t generally common for a novel, but I think they add some style and substance that give readers a glance into the author’s mind. Not to eliminate the imagination of the reader, but to guide their thoughts. Anywho, onto today’s numbers after the break.
