NaNoWriMo and Things
Thursday, November 21st, 2013
I’ve been sadly neglecting the blog during November, but I’m doing wonderfully at NaNoWriMo, and that’s where all my words are going. I’ve started the sequel to The Courtship of Julian St. Albans, and I’m writing Julian’s book to follow up Alex’s.
In the first book, Alex gives Julian some magical plants, among them something I made up called fairy flowers, which attract butterfly fairies. They show up again in The Apprenticeship of Julian St. Albans, and so I decided to draw them. Assuming the coloring goes well, I’ll use them on the cover like I did with Horace.
I still need to color the image, but I thought you’d like to know where I’d wandered off to. So, at 47K+ words and 9 days to go, here’s a little something to tide you over.
And yes, I’m getting (some) art done for the Floating Gallery, too.
