NaNoWriMo 2011

For Nano this year, I am going to be working with Studio Pyraxis to edit my part of the Water Song trilogy. This is the project we drafted and finished for Nano 2009, so we'll be breaking with protocol to revise it instead and get it to the point of being ready for publication.

We're looking for feedback....

The book, which doesn't yet have a title, is one side three sides of the coin octahedron in the story of my homeworld Ua. The water had already drained from the oceans when I was born, and all the magic in the world couldn't tell where it was going. All we had were fragments of a prophecy, our will for a better life, and all the ingenuity we could muster. It is the story of my people, some of whom disagreed with my extreme methods of conservation of natural resources. It is my story, and the stories of my anza Uz'qi and the rogue priest Ua'vic (shashigai/Javik). It's a story about ambition, desperation and the currency of power.

If all goes well, we'll be posting about 2300 words/day. You'd be welcome to read as much or as little as you like. Any response would be much appreciated, from rough first impressions, to detailed writing critique, to anything that will help keep our spirits up. (You may also be as insulting as you like; I don't stand on protocol when I can avoid it, and I've heard much worse in my twenty-odd years as Raba Ua.)

I'm opening up a friendslist. Please let me know if you would like in. :)

- Ua'lin, the fourth Raba Ua

You're not late - it's not even Nov 1 yet where I am - and it would be fine if you were. Anyone who wants to get on the list until the end of Nov is welcome.

Yes, I'd like to see it. I, also, may not comment much, but really appreciate the energy someone else puts into artistic creations of any kind.
