NaNoWriMo 2012 Idea 2


I haven’t written anything – properly – for a whole week. Its fabulous! I feel so relaxed and almost rested. I say almost because the boys are still messing about at night. Its not so bad as it has been in the past, but I could certainly do with more rest. Still, having the rest means I’m catching up with books (I’m reading The Hunger Games now) and some much missed TV. Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons and working through series six of Supernatural are all going towards making me a happy bunny. 🙂

But… despite all that, I remain quite excited! The buzz which comes with NaNoWriMo is just beginning and I’m starting to think about if I want to write directly into Word (like I normally do) or if I want to use Scrivener, like I did while editing SORB. That’s a decision still to be made, but I’m getting there. Either or, I don’t suppose it makes much difference.

Anyway…! I still don’t know which is going to be the idea that takes off, but I like talking to you about them. So if you missed idea one, then you should find it here. This, idea two is a rewrite of something I did quite a few years ago, a bit like my first NaNo in which I wrote Clash Of The Animal Kings. I’ve been wanting to return for it for quite some time, but for some reason (well I know why) I haven’t got back to it.

This piece didn’t really have a name – I think it might have been one of those I called IDKY (I Don’t Know yet), or something like that.

dark little fairy, from OpenClipArtWorking Title: Sky Portal
Genre: High Fantasy
Summary: A miserable human waitress is caught between two warring races from the stories of her childhood; Tebacklians and Keifans.

I realise that doesn’t tell you much, but think along the lines of a sort of through the looking glass adventure; someone transported to another world and shakes things up when they get there. Have you ever seen the Tenth Kingdom? I’m fairly certain that I wrote my ‘first draft’ of this tale after that.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Do you think it will be hard to choose between the possible ideas?

  2. I loved the Tenth Kingdom! Good luck with your novel, Ileandra. I’m going to give NaNoWriMo a shot this year.

    • I kinda figure that people will pick an idea they like quite early. I’m hoping to provide a bit of conflict in choice with the other two though. Funnily enough, even I don’t know which one I prefer. @_@
