“An aging flower child and multi-billionaire, who is a born-again and very zealous Christian, decides to invest his enormous wealth into creating a tropical paradise in a giant dome. It is meant to recreate the biblical garden of Eden, where it will be home to a select few people, who will live as Adam and Eve did: nude, free from sin and shame, and totally committed to a life of naturalism and peace. Things go well, but not for long…”
Stay tuned for the release of the book itself – when it’s done, hopefully by November 30th, I’ll put the whole thing up here, each chapter with its own page.
National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, takes place from November 1st to November 30th. The goal is to start fresh and write an entire 50k+ word novel in one month.
I’m doing it, and I hope you all will, too. There’s nothing like writing a story to keep your brain active and test your creative limits. I’ll be posting my progress here as well as on the official site, nanowrimo.org.
What will my book be about? Well, that’s something I’ll have to figure out before November 1st. Good luck to all participating!
I’ve noticed that lots of important things are odd numbered. Just think of all of them….
– “There can be only one”
– Din, Nayru and Farore
– The Triforce
– Holy trinity
– 13 people in Jesus’ posse (12 disciples and himself)
– One “true” God
– I know 7 is an important number for God
– Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky
– Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone
– Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die
– One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
– Three panel comics
– Three-ring circus
I’m sure there are tons more I can’t think of at the moment. There are dozens of important meanings for every number, including the even ones, but it seems to me like odd-numbered things are somehow more profound. Since I used Lord of the Rings as an example, picture 4 elven rings, or 8 ringwraiths. Since odd numbered things can never be perfectly balanced, I think it brings more of a feeling of power.
