Adventures in Writing

I’ve been writing in various capacities for many years, but one type of writing has always eluded me: Books. So I decided to take the NaNoWriMo challenge and attempt to write a novel in 30 days.


Yeah, National Novel Writing Month. Write over 1,600 words per day for a total of 50,000 words (the minimum required to call a book a novel). I fell short at a little over 37,000 words, but it was still pretty cool.

What’d ya write?

The Dark Crystal Author QuestI wasn’t sure what to write till I was surfing around for shows I could expose my preteens to and I came accross the Dark Crystal writing contest. It was the motivation I needed.

Didja win?

Nope, but that’s ok. It was my first attempt against experienced novelists and over 500 submissions.


Wanna read what I wrote? It is a freshmen work and probably not up to the standards you are probably used to. I have optimized it for both desktop and smartphone reading. Click on the link below:

The Dark Crystal – Descent

I hope you like it. It’s rated T for Teen.
