My next NaNoWriMo Novel

My next NaNoWriMo novel is going to be called The Time Musicians. It is the sequel to the first novel I ever finished, which is called "The Mysterious Puddle." Last year was my first time doing NaNo and it helped me finish my second novel, which was a Science Fiction / Space Opera book called "The Trading Family." That's a working title which I am not going to keep, but it holds the spot for now. I was thinking of NaNoWriMo and remembering that you can upload an image for the book you're writing, and so I whipped up this graphic to use. The Time Musician will be kind of a genre mash up. It starts out in the near future and then goes back in time to a Medieval village where most of the first book I wrote, "The Mysterious Puddle" took place. So the setting will be SciFi for the first part, and more of a classic Fantasy setting for the second part. It will be a fun to write, and I am determined to get down 50k words during the month of November. Join me in November on the NaNoWrimo website as my writing buddy here, and lets write like the dickens! (Yes you can write like Charles or Emily if you wish)
