So it Begins, Starting a Novel

I'm going to blog my entire novel content online a it progresses as well as any comments, thoughts and inspirations as well as tidbits concerning the entire writing process on a new blog at "Forsaken Realms". If anyone is interested please feel free to drop in and give your take as well as suggestions for the entire month. My goal is to at least complete the 50,000 words challenge by the end of the month, God willing. I may not be J.R.R. Tolkein but I do hope my work will garner some interests, it may not get published but I'll cherish it as something of my own, from the fertile imagination of my mind. So enjoy "Forsaken Realms" (Title has not been finalised yet so this is the working title for now, a homage to Forgotten Realms that inspire much of my childhood and still do. This post will remain on top for the rest of the month till the end of NaNoWriMo.

As of today the novel Forsaken Realms have been validated and I've got my cert!!!! Didn't think I made it but by the third week it was already past the 50,000 words mark. A lot of editing and rewriting and tying up loose ends before I can really claim it's complete but I'll take my time. Nice icon they gave the winners as well. Anyway congratulations to all the others as well that managed to meet the target, so far 12 have already validated their novels and maybe before the month is ended many more will as well. Another note, I've decided to publish the novel entire on my blog so by the start of December I will be releasing it online for people to read. Thanks for all that gave in a good word of cheer throughout the writing process. Till Nano 2006.

Hi just came across your website by chance. I'm an avid photographer myself but after looking at your pages I think I need classes.

Go for it Kervin. This is your life, your chance - no need to wait for someone's approval. If it is good, it will take off, but wow, a target of 50,000 words per month is quite a target!

Looking forward to your novel. That's a major project. Just finished the chapter of a book and I know how difficult it is to come up with something original. Wish you all the best.
