In case you’re wondering what my novel is about, it’s a sword and planet adventure with a lot of hard science thrown in. Think of a blend of Leigh Brackett, Robert E. Howard, and Larry Niven with a dash of Jack Vance. At this point, I’ll be focusing on two or three different characters from the same space ship trying to survive at different places under very different circumstances on the same alien planet. Of course, I could change my mind and give each character their separate novel. I’ll just have to wait and see.
Fifty thousand words is the minimum required to “win” NaNoWriMo. I know I can write that much; the thing that will be hard will be writing that much in one month. Thankfully the Thanksgiving holidays should allow me some time to catch up if I fall behind.
