Fellow writers, how is your NaNoWriMo story coming along?
Whether you’re ahead, behind, or write on target, remember that the important thing is to keep trying. Tell the story you enjoy telling. If you need a break or inspiration, browse the forums, do some reading, draw your characters or their setting, or maybe even see a movie. You could even step completely away from the story and give yourself a change of scenery. Don’t lose out on self-care– it won’t make the words com faster. You’ll be able to write more once you’ve rested and nourished yourself.
Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons, and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a distant planet watched over by four deities: good, evil, elemental, and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the realm whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently three books completed, and the first one can be read online. Book four is currently being written, and a fifth will most likely be in the future.
