For nearly four years now, I’ve been seriously working on my own writing projects, including NaNoWriMo and several other novels. However, not until now have I come to the understanding that I am primarily a Young Adult Science Fiction writer and that I hardly write anything else.
That is, until I started writing an Epic Fantasy (or high fantasy, whichever you prefer) novel this spring. I didn’t really think about it, I just wanted to jump into it and complete my all-time wish to write a novel with a great huge story.
But as it turns out, Sci-Fi and Epic Fantasy are two very different genres to write. So what did I understand after writing the first few chapters?

Love makes us such fools…
Pain in love appears to be a Roux family birthright, and for Ava Lavender, a girl born with the wings of a bird, it is key to her inheritance.

So, writing a whole novel is some pretty difficult work. It takes time, drains you out of inspiration in most cases and is definitely not a pretty thing like one can imagine while reading a book. It’s hard work and at most times a little bit too much to handle.

I’m currently not reading any books I will be reviewing, so instead I thought I would spend some time on just discussing something that is keeping me intrigued for the most of the year. And that is NaNoWriMo.
I know, it’s only August and there are months until I will have to write a novel of 50,000 pages or more, but I want to be as prepared as I can when the event finally comes around. Since I hardly outline anything, one thing I love doing is getting my survival kit ready.
I’ve recently come around to completing the list of my survival kit, now I will have to focus on actually collecting and gathering all of the things I’ve listed there. Along with the list, I will explain why I need some things and so on.
