Nanowrimo 2022 is behind us and while I am a few weeks behind on a post-mortem post, I figured better late than never. The last few years have been a struggle for me as a writer. I started off on my writing journey in 2012 with a huge amount of vigor. Over the years, without any smashing successes my energy waned. It took three emotionally draining years between covid and other struggles to just completely drain whatever reserves that remained to me for my writing.
I’ve spent the majority of 2022 struggling to finish Battle Engines: Flames, the second book in that series. But my struggles disappeared for this year with Nanowrimo. I didn’t think I could do it, the motivation just wasn’t there. But in 30 days I wrote 50,197 words. My goal, write 3 novellas in 30 days. And I’m happy to announce that I accomplished that. I finished 3 novellas in the Chronicles of Colark series. My goal is to edit them and release them in a quick succession with hopefully one coming out before Christmas. I hope everyone enjoys the bloody, sword slashing, barbarian-filled, action adventure story! I’ve enjoyed writing it. While it’s not the Battle Engines story that everyone has been asking for, it is a story that has motivated me to write once again.
Here is a sneak peek of the cover.
That’s all you get for now. Enjoy!
