Nanowrimo 2013: Day 4Posted: November 5, 2013
It’s going really well so far!
Amelie and her world have developed really well. There’s a great deal of atmosphere present, which really pleases me since Xainu (and the colonies in general) have always been a massive blackhole in my world-building.
More importantly, however, my protagonist has a Best Friend. She didn’t start the story as a best friend. Originally, Yennefer was just someone at the fencing school who thought Amelie was “just okay”. Background scenery, in other words. But the two girls (both 13 orbits old) are becoming fast friends, and bonding over a semi-shared Dark Past.
Obviously, I don’t want to spoil anything, but it’s leading to very interesting places.
