This year for NaNoWriMo I’m going to work on book 4 of my series. At this time the working title is “The Answer Is In The Stars”. My characters haven’t shared with me yet what the story is about. I know the threat from the previous book has expanded.

Tomorrow I’ll get to know the two main characters better. I also need to find the first sentence of the story. There is so much to do before I start writing on November 1.

This is exciting. That’s what NaNoWriMo is about.

I’ll share more about my experiences as we go along.

The past couple of week s I have been working to get to know my characters better. The first step is to learn their names. So far I have the protagonist, Alexandra, Allie, M’Ren. The first born of her generation, she is named for her grandmother. She is set to follow her grandmother’s example of uniting the cultures of her planet, Naldo. After the devastating destruction that took place in the previous book, the cultures of this world need a leader to unit behind once more. When an accident leaves Allie to believe she is to blame for the death of a friend, she runs away and leaves her future and her hopes behind, or so she thinks.

This is the beginning of my story. I will find out more in November. In the meantime I need to get to know the other characters. I will share more with you as we go along.
