Hi everyone, wow, it's been a while since I've made a post. Well, I'm doing so now.
You may have heard me mention Camp NaNoWriMo recently, and that's because I participated in it this April. It is an event run by the creators of NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. The standard event happens in November, but Camp is held in April and July, and it's basically similar to the regular event apart from the fact that you can set an adjustable goal for yourself rather than the premeditated goal of 50K* words in November. Anyway, my goal was originally 40K words, but when I realized that was unattainable, I eventually lowered the goal to 20K words - cut in half - and I beat it today! I currently have 20,368 words of my draft done. It's NOWHERE near a finished novel, but it's progress!
*K is an abbreviation for kilo, meaning 1,000
Here's the question: do you guys want me to post it on here? I would be breaking my own rule, since it is not about pegasi (instead, the main character is a three-year-old unicorn colt). It is an original piece of mine, although if you read it you'd probably see similarities between it and several of the books I've read. I have 23 or so chapters already written, and I'm anxious for feedback. That desire for reader feedback is why I'm willing to break my own rule about sticking with TGH stuff.
Also, if you guys end up saying yes, I plan on drawing a rough sketch for the cover art of the eventual book, if it ever gets published, which I will probably then post here.
I'll put voting on whether or not you want me to in the comments. Press the "Like" button (little heart in the bottom right corner, for newcomers) on the one you agree with.
