It's National Novel Writing Month! Good thing I'm always fashion-forward and already in the middle of a novel I've been working on for the past year or so. I've just passed page 150, which puts me squarely in the second act, and in the "middleish" for those who like technical terms. The image above that I sketched out has nothing to do with my novel, it was just for fun (because my "fun" consists of drawing the grisly remains of a woman who has apparently fallen from a great height? /sigh). The novel is actually a fantasy epic about werewolves.
Ah, fantasy! The genre best butchered by beginners and amateurs! Here's hoping I don't do the poor darlings any injustice. Because werewolves are pretty concerned with things like justice. And they have a better work ethic than I do when it comes to things like staying physically fit. Basically, any one of them could rip my head off and replace it with a teapot, which might be considered an improvement because hey, at least a teapot knows how to whistle.
Also, in the Warcraft section of my life, I've started a guild with a pretty unusual mission statement. So hopefully that'll do well, and we'll end up raiding into the sunset with pretty purples together (if that was a load of nonsense for you, just insert the shrill sound of a teakettle whistle here).
Happy trails to everyone! Pick up a pen or start picking at a keyboard and contribute to the novel cause - I can't wait to see the results.

I've been drawing quite a few heroine-type characters out lately - just the kind of beings that creep into your brain and let you daydream stories with them. This is my Steampunk girl. Enjoy!
