NaNo 2012 Participant

Don't worry, I haven't got a small piece of wood under my skin. Splinters is the working title of my new writing project. It's a science fiction novel that I'm currently writing for NaNoWriMo, in order to give it a big kick-start. Knowing me, it will end up being another three volume epic.

I've been doing a lot of planning and plotting for this project. In fact, I've been itching to start writing it for months now. I held back because I thought it would make a great challenge for NaNo, but also because I wanted to resurrect some of my older projects that had become dormant. Blood on the Rooftops, my crime novel, has now had a couple of edits. It still needs more work before I can consider any kind of publication, but I'm glad it finally started to take shape.

Later on, I'll put up some blurb and/or excerpts from Splinters here. In the mean time, feel free to put forward any plot ninjas you might have.

As promised, here is an extract from my NaNoWriMo project…

Great title!

I'm using NaNo to motivate me to finish a previously started novel, and it's going surprisingly well so far.

Good luck with yours.

I love the title, Kev. I'm so excited about 'Splinters'. I feel certain you are going to be a famous sci-fi writer one day. Plotting and Planning is the way to go! Good luck.

Thanks Karen and Annie. There's an extract now available, though it's in a raw and unedited form.
