So, here’s something fun. I was browsing old threads I posted on various forums and came across one called “Concrete Dreams – My Novel” posted around the time I would have been 14, and the single chapter contained within certainly reads like it. I have made no edits to the piece, it is presented exactly as it was written nine years ago. Try to enjoy.
This post is a little late, since I’m already two days into week two, but here goes anyway. I have recently started writing a novel that is tentatively titled The Kraken and the Clock Tower. These posts will document that process, including a weekly word count check in, along with various thoughts and feelings along the way.
As anyone who follows this blog will know, I attempted to use Camp NaNoWriMo this year to outline my current novel project, The Kraken and the Clock Tower. And I succeeded in the end. But as I came up on my last couple of days, things got a bit intense and… sweary. Below, I share some of my favourite excerpts, mostly spoiler free, and NSFW.
