Writer’s Life: THE END!!!

Posted by Nicky Drayden on Nov 29, 2010 in Writer's Life |

Echium Filigree Boomsnaggle Stahl. That is not my protagonist’s name, but it was for the ten-minute process of padding out my NaNovel the necessary 2500 words to reach 50,000. At this point, it’s a tradition for my characters to suddenly gain two middle names somewhere around November 30th.

But I am still proud of this work of art. It’s wild. It’s wacky. It’s got killer space rhinos, talking flatworms, and zombie politicians. There’s more left to the story, but I’ll sort that out in December. For now, it’s time to celebrate. So Echium Filigree Boomsnaggle Stahl, this one’s for you!

Congratulations, Nicky! Way to go!

Lol, gotta love the padding.

Belated congratulations! That trick with the names made me smile. Well done and well-earned!

Now, I’ll take the space rhinos over the zombie politicians, but either way I’m intrigued, especially coming from that great first teaser.
