Sorry for the lack of updates. As they say, moving house can be hectic, you can imagine what having a house built is like..

Anywho, there's been very little done in the way of Elyden over the past few months, though with NaNoWriMo looming, I thought i'd have a go at something I've always wanted to try though have never gotten round to doing.

For those who don't know, NaNoWriMo is an abbreviation for - National Novel Writing Month. (you can find out more about it here http://www.nanowrimo.org/). The name really says it all; the challenge is to write a 50,000-word novel in a month. editing, drafting, cleaning up of text is all secondary to the act of getting the words out there - that can all be sorted out later on.

I'll be updating the blog with my progress, and really hope to get this done this month as otherwise this will be the fifth year I fail to accomplish anything!

Fingers crossed!


  1. Guess what, you're not failing anything if you at least try. Yours truly often fails to even do that. I think the biggest issue for meticulous builders like you and I is stepping away from the exposition and construction to actually walk the world with characters.

  2. so true! when I started out the conworlding was just a background thing to the short-stories and writing exercises, though no that its grown into its own thing the actual writing has taken a back seat and its often difficult to actually write, though I'm trying!
