Well, not quite yet. Next week though and all those word counts are quietly ticking along at zero waiting for people to start writing.
The hardest thing is to start. Actually, the hardest thing, for me anyway, is always thinking of a title and finding the time to put a synopsis on my profile page. Designing a cover gives me migraines. Compared to that starting is easy. Just do it. Don’t think about it. No one is going to read this actual first draft of your novel after all. The title and synopsis though are what you share with the world via your profile page, or with people who ask you what the hell you think you can write 50, 000 words about anyway.
This year I have been more organised. Here is what the hell I think I can write 50,000 words about;
The Eye of The Gods
Sun has survived a civil war to win a home for herself aboard Jade Dragon. Being a pirate makes staying alive a full-time occupation and getting on the wrong side or The Temple Elect means that Jade Dragon must embark on a journey to awake the old gods. A journey that could liberate Sun’s country but destroy the only home she has left.
Now everybody out there can do better than that, surely? So what are you waiting for? Just start. Then come and buddy me.
