I have decided to take part in NaNoWriMo of this year. Well in November which is just days away from now. The reason I wanted to take part in NaNoWriMo is that I have always had a passion for creative writing ever since I was seven years old.
I remember writing my first short story when I was seven and it was about a bear trying to kill people who lived in the woods. Safe to say that it was a combination of Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and The Three Bears, but I loved doing it.
I never fully stopped writing stories when I was growing up. I had close to no friends and a wild imagination, so I figured what the hell. I did try to publish a novel but it didn’t go as planned. So, I decided to take another shot. The reason why the first time it didn’t go well is because I felt that it wasn’t too imaginative enough. It was a comedy which was based around social reality and therefore people weren’t fans. So I decided to take it a big step.
Now, ever since I was a kid, I was a huge fan of Star Wars, and YES I AM FREAKING PUMPED FOR THE FORCE AWAKENS in December.
The reason I bring up Star Wars, because it was the first film I had ever watched where I had experienced escapism from the real world. I loved the film because it transported me into a different world and I never forget my first time watching this incredible film. So, I had decided to write stories which help escape the world around you and help you immerse within the world that is created whether it is on screen with films or with text with novels. So here comes the novel that I hope to start writing with NaNoWriMo 2015.
This is the official cover for my upcoming novel which I will start writing in November. It is called VOYAGE and I think you can tell that it is a space novel and a science fiction as well.
I grew up with science fiction (Star Wars, Back To The Future, Terminator 1 and 2, The Matrix, Inception etc). and this seems perfect for me to start crafting my skills as a writer. So, far, I can’t reveal too much yet, as I want to have many surprises for you. Well, if you read it. (I hope so).
I will give a very brief synopsis of the book.
SYNOPSIS – A group of astronauts travel to the cosmos to discover more beyond their reach.
That is all I will say for now, but please follow my blog and my journey and you will experience more on the way.
Thank you and wish me luck.
