NaNoWriMo

I write nonstop throughout the year producing original fiction. I’m constantly trying to stretch myself with projects that are bigger than previous projects, or more inventive than previous projects, or simply something different from anything I’ve ever done before.

This is a somewhat draining process. What’s more, it has me producing 50,000 words per month on a semi-regular basis.

For these reasons, NaNoWriMo is not an especially unique challenge for me, the way it is for many other aspiring authors. I still enjoy participating, however, and I want to support the organization for two major reasons:

1. The event has had some significant impact on my writing life.

2. I feel connected to a global community of creative individuals.

What this has meant for the past few years (and what I plan for it to continue to mean for the foreseeable future), is that NaNo is my “vacation” time. During the month of November, I take a break from all of the overly-ambitious projects that I spin throughout the year and do something fun. Namely, fan fiction.

That’s what you’re going to find on this page. Each year, during the month of November, I’ll be posting my progress on that book as I reach certain milestones. Sometimes it’ll be based on chapters. Other times it’ll be measured by emotional arcs. Occasionally it’ll simply be when I hit certain word counts. When/how I do it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you can come here and read my raw, unadulterated love for various worlds, characters, and stories through my raw, unrefined prose produced in a semi-conscious haze.

Hopefully you can watch me improve over the years as well. šŸ™‚

Sound fun?

I hope so.

Take some time, then, and check ’em out:
