A slap dash overview of my last month of writing – grammar optional.

nanowrimo-2016

50,195 words in 29 days. The novel isn’t finished, perhaps, I wrote too much outline. It is looking like the novel will finish around 75,000 words.
What novel you ask? Why, Einstein’s Fallacy, thanks for asking. A high school physics teacher becomes the protector of a genius high school student who has discovered a mistake with Einstein’s work. An idea that is dangerous, in many ways. They travel to CERN the centre of Quantum physics where they meet Dr.Stephen Hawking. He introduces them to Dr.Tomas Cardona who will aid them in the development of this revolutionary idea and Leon Trask, Silicon Valley Entrepreneur.

Ben, the student wants to get to space. To, as he puts it, “Get off this damm rock and all it’s petty people.”

Lisa’s long term relationship over she wistfully wonders if she chose the right career path.  And gets a chance to be her dream, a researcher.

Dr.Brenda Sawyer, Lisa’s mentor at University and connection to CERN.

Tomas, realizes that what he has believed, researched, his life’s work is mis-guided and wants to regain a purpose.

Leon Trask, wise and wants to make money, more importantly make power his companion.

Katherine and Jason Hock – two to of the richest people in the world see the threat Ben’s ideas hold and want to control it. Ruthless would be a kind word for their tactics.

Three wise men who see the danger posed by the discovery who enlist the aid of Graywater and the Hock’s to manage the chaos they see coming.

Graywater – a private security contractor with no national boundaries. Protectors yes, mercenaries, certainly.?)

Be Well – dcd

 

NaNoWriMo – 50179 – Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Made it and validated at 50179- still have to get through a funeral and stirring speech about change, 50k dragon is slayed. I tried numerous times to kill off my heroine at the end of the book. She refused to die. Now to put it on the first draft revision list. I already know much of what I want to do. I suspect I need to add a couple chapters. But hey, I am the author I am allowed to re-write…Be well. (Changed my mind, added some raw writing)

Once again the ground bubbled, and changed. The lava started to roll towards the stone walls. Either Elias didn’t believe what he been told about the events of earlier today or no one from the battle survied. It didn’t matter the lava slowly rolled to the stone walls. Elias remained on the wall staring down at what he was seeing. The sound of the rolling lava changed as it hit the stone wall. The hissing grew louder and the lava grew with intensity. And once the stone started transforming it tore threw the stone wall like it wasn’t there. It seemed it was easier for Jorunn and Othin to change the stone into lava than the earth. The walls started to crumble and fall. Jorunn watched as Elias fell into the lava screaming. But she still pushed on the walls of lava forming a circle and moving faster as the closed in to the center. And then it was over. There was no Febostead. There was burnt, charred, melted stone and nothing else. There was no Febostead.
