My NaNoWriMo Self-Motivational Rant

It’s time for a talk with myself…

Is it November yet? It feels like it given the way I’m racing the clock this month leading up to NaNoWriMo. For last year’s NaNo I wrote a sequel, which diminished my planning pressure. There were only a limited number of new characters and the story had been in the back of my mind since completing the prior sequel.

About Ontyre Passages

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
