Follow along with my NaNoWriMo experiment

Anyone who has read here for any length of time knows that I like having a Sunday book bubbling away on a back burner, a book I play with when I’m in the mood.  Over the past year or so, The OtherLand Chronicles have been following me around, and I’ve decided to make the book into my NaNoWriMo project.

And you, dear reader, can play along with me.  Because I’m writing it on a blog, day by day.  I had hoped to go live with the website first thing this morning, but we ran into a glitch that delayed it.

I can now announce that it’s LIVE!  The Otherland Chronicles

My promise is to finish the book, even if there is only one reader, so don’t be afraid that you’ll become invested and then I won’t finish.  You have my word that I will, posting every day until it is done.  I don’t promise to be perfect.  I don’t promise to never make a mistake.  I have a beta reader to help keep me on track, but I hope if you play along, you’ll go with an open mind.

The opening paragraph is:



I was walking my dog through the parkways when it happened again. Someone called me by the wrong name.

It has been happening ever since we moved here—a boy at the grocery store, a teacher-ish lady one night at my mom’s restaurant. Last week, two girls at the mall were so sure I was pretending not to be this Micayla person that they pulled me into the bathroom and offered me a cigarette.  They were not happy when they realized I wasn’t kidding.


Let the games begin!

    So, is the feed to The Other Land Chronicles glitched? But not only that, I can’t get into eBay as well. Everything else opens. Bah!
