My Writing Journey - Part 3


This November, I embarked on a new journey. It's my first time participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The goal is to reach 50,000 words in one month and I am presently at 17,000+. If you are thinking of doing it next year, then I recommend that you do most of your prep ahead of time so that you can focus on the writing. I didn't. Now I'm spending more time researching instead of writing. It's fine if I don't get much written, because at least I'm finally doing it. The trick will be to stay motivated and continue writing. I could certainly use a few cheerleaders in my corner, so I invite you to follow along on my journey here on the blog and in my brand new Facebook group!

Here is today's sneak peek:

Both the man and dog stood calmly watching her. She scowled from her prone position. He held out his hand to her. That’s when she noticed his long slender fingers and smooth sinewy arm. She was already disadvantaged, so she slapped her hand in his with a huff. He braced himself and, with a strong grip, easily pulled her to her feet. 

Once she was upright, she got a better look at him. His face was angular with no facial hair. He looked mature, possibly hardened by life, but also young. Perhaps he’s in his early twenties, she mused. He wore a blue short-sleeved tunic over brown pants. One item of clothing that stood out was the chestnut-red scarf wrapped around his head.

He looked her up and down, maybe to check if she was alright. She wasn’t sure. “Where are you going?” he asked, using a slow cadence in a pleasing accent. Thankfully, he spoke in Ziglish, the common tongue. She had been forced to study it even though Livanian’s were no longer speaking to outsiders.
