It just fits, okay?
Mason’s life turned upside down when his parents were attacked by vampires. Taken in by Diane and Jefferson, he soon agrees to join them and become a hunter, seeking out the creatures that lurk in the darkness and wish for nothing else except to kill. In his early twenties, Mason starts dreaming of a girl in Cardiff, and knows he has to help her. Addie, living a normal life, is starting to see ghosts, and without someone to guide her, she’ll lose her mind.
Mason has to help her come to terms with what she sees, while trying to work out if the vampires who slaughtered his family are still out there. But, with every question answered, a new one rises.
That pretty much sums it up. Oh, and so far, there’s been exorcisms, a summoning of an angel, ghosts aplenty, and a very pissed off Celtic goddess. And with over 40,000 words written, the story is nowhere near finished. To be honest, it’s been so much fun to write, jumping back and forth between the two main characters and fleshing out the world around them. As well as that, there’s the other hunters. Including Fox, with severe scars, Ali, a wizard with technology, and Holly & Seth, who have their own short story that you can read here. But I can feel my energy beginning to run low, can feel an urge to work on something else and I’m very much looking forward to the end of the month. Hopefully, I’ll hit 50,000 early and try to get a lot more written before midnight on November 30th. But I’ll keep you updated on that next week.
So, any one else doing NaNoWriMo this year? How’s it going for you? What’s your book about? Feeling a little burned out yet, or still feeling love for what you’re working on? Let me know.
