NaNoWriMo 2015 Winner

I did it. I wrote 50,000 words on Tania's gift in the month of November, and reached my goal of finishing by Thanksgiving. A lot of things got pushed to the side, a lot of reward chocolate was consumed, and the story the story took a lot of unexpected turns, but I won NaNoWriMo. The story is not finished yet. I plan to keep working on it, though I have honestly not worked on it since I won. I need to rectify that...

NaNoWriMo 2015: Tania's Gift


So, I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year. I did it two years ago. But not last year. I was too overwhelmed with everything I had going on. I kind of wished I had once I saw friends posting the cool winners certificate. But that's okay. 

Over the past month, I have been brainstorming for this year's NaNoWriMo. It is an idea that has been sitting in my file of story ideas for quite some time. It is about a young woman who can feel what other people are feeling by touching them. A man from another kingdom comes to request that she come to his kingdom for some reason. I wracked my brains for an idea of why she was needed in the other kingdom. I finally came up with an idea, and I like it. But I'm not going to share it yet...stay tuned.

I would like to incorporate some fairy tales into my story, so if you want to help, share some ideas of fairy tales that prominently feature princes.

November is going to be one crazy month, but by the end I plan to have written 50,000 words on my story of Tania's Gift.

P.S. To warm up, I've been writing more of my Sleeping Beauty Spin-off. I'll get that finished one of these days.
