Day Nine of NaNo

November 9, 2009

Wow! Time passes when you’re having fun! It has been a week since my last post and I’m now up to over seventeen thousand words in Cloud Dancer.

So far, there have been two romantic interludes, two battle sequences, many historical references and some required expository text. Things are shaping up nicely and I’ve not even revealed the Cloud Dancer.

Just to give you an idea of some of the research I’ve been doing, here are just a few of the more than two dozen links I’ve bookmarked just for this novel.

Those are just part of establishing the initial backstory.
