Revelation Void – 50,053 words/On Hold
11/27/10 – I’ve been extremely slack about updating this page, my apologies. I have spend most of my free time these past almost 4 weeks working on the book. I had only a kernal of an idea and at times I wondered how I was going to get there, or what should happen next, but now I’m over 42,000 words in and its shaping up ok. It’s turned out to be much more character driven than I had anticipated, which is fine, but it’s moving slow enough that I think I might actual get to novel length. My original plan was for a novella.
I’ve added several characters and the cast has gotten fairly large, but I don’t see any more additions until they make the plunge through the anomoly. They haven’t even gotten halfway there yet. I’ll post an excerpt soon.
Only 4 days left counting today, but I am confident that I will make it. I’m still shocked that some people have over 100k words already and I know one person that has almost 200k! In less than 30 days! Amazing, I wonder if it’s crap, but even if it is that’s pretty impressive.
10/30/10 – I spent some time today trying to find a more compelling title for the story and settled on this one, Revelation Void. I think its better than Exiled!
10/28/10 – Exiled! is the book two working title. I like the idea, here’s the synopsis:
In the far future man has explored the majority of our universe and settle much of the Milky Way, but found no life originating outside of Earth. Our hero discovers an extragalactic anomoly that turns out to be a gateway to another universe teeming with life. His discovery only leads to more questions and the other sentient life is horrified to see the humans emerging from their Exile!
I’m working on this for National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo as it’s better known. That starts on 1 November. The idea is to write 50,000 words in the month. I haven’t decided yet if this will be a novella or a full length novel.
