No really, I’ve spent July outlining the second half of the first Dragon Relic book. NaNoWriMo now allows us to set time goals and shift those goals right up to the end (for Camps, not the November event).
Via outline and sketches, I introduced of a new secondary main character, who will not only be crucial to this story arc, but also star in another splinter series that I’m devising. The best part? The character, both in concept and name, spawned from a client’s typo. This is a longer story best saved for another post. In short, I loved the typo-name so much, I’m immortalizing it in Dragon Relic. These humorous tidbits can sometimes lend much-needed fuel to a limping project, and this was no exception.
My pace wasn’t stellar, and many days coasted by without a thought toward Dragon Relic. However, nothing came to an utter halt, and the overall story moved in a forward direction. To this, I say and feel, “Yay!”
