Hi, NMG-ers! So I thought I'd make a discussion post for NaNoWriMo 2017 - a place to share tips, to talk about our stories/books, or just discuss any other NaNoWriMo-related stuff.
My book is called The Night Forest, and it's about a girl, Jenni, who lives with her mother, Gwenyth, and her younger sister, Kerry, in the early-ish 1900s. They live near a cursed forest called the Night Forest, because the sun never shines there, and the trees are always bare. There are legends surrounding the Forest, and they all say that if you go in there, you never come out. Jenni has never had reason to doubt the legends, and, even though she's curious about the Night Forest, she remains cautious around it, like everyone else. But when Kerry vanishes into the Forest one night, Jenni has to overcome her fears and venture into the Forest to find her, and she starts off on what turns out to be a life-changing journey.
I'm combining a coming-of-age story with a mystical/cursed setting story for the first time ever, so I'm curious as to how it will turn out. I think I'll post the book on NMG when it's done!
My goal is 700 words/day, and so far I go over my goal every day by about 30 words. Yea me!
So, talk. Learn. And happy writing!
