I haz a synopsis!

Finally, some progress!

And yes, NaNoWriMo is but three days away! Oh gahd...I am shaking in my skivvies. XD

My chapter scenes are a mess. I hope I make a semblance of order out of all these when November 1 hits. There's just so much to do, and what am I doing? Procrastinating, that's what! Somebody shoot me.

I'll be posting sporadically until I'm satisfied with the lackluster progress I'm making.

So help me God.

The 3 heroines: Familia del Castillo

She may be the youngest of the three sisters, but no one can mistake the sense of honor and duty in her words and actions. Decisive yet prudent, sharp but witty, guarded yet vulnerable, she wields guns and rifles with sheer accuracy and resolution. A true daughter of a Margrave and a Vespanolan Princess, she vows to protect her sisters and to unmask her parents' murderers as they unravel the secrets and mysteries in the New World.

Mute since the day of her birth, she has the uncanny ability to communicate with her sisters and kinsmen with the power of her mind. Her sweet and innocent facade hides the steely, resolute conviction of a woman determined to unlock the secret of the greatest treasure in the New World---the Legacy of Ferruccio Espada.

Dazzled and enamored by the pomp and frivolity of court, her concerns revolve around snagging the best catch in the kingdom. Despite her vanity, she carries her mother's skill in the magical arts, an ability that only she has mastered. Hoping to end the strife between the countries of Orpesia, she learns that there's more to the people of Granado Espada that she and her sisters could ever fathom.


Yeah, I know it's been forever, but I have to lay out my plans this November for NaNoWriMo as I'll be pretty much busy at work next week. So far, I'm hoping to finish a more detailed character profile for each of my MCs (main characters). I can already visualize the first few scenes...I just hope I don't run out of ideas.

Just don't let November come just yet. :p

The GE fanfic novel project

I'm back! Well, back to blogging, that is. I've missed this place after months of hiatus! It's great to be back!

I've joined yet again this year's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which means it's going to be another busy November for me. But what's got me so excited about this project is the fact that I'll be writing a 50k word fanfic on...what else? Granado Espada!

I have to admit that this is going to be one hell of a busy month. Although I'm really psyched to write this fanfic, the very same fears plague me every time I join this thingamajig, i.e., beating the 50k word cut, writing something that doesn't look like a pathetic attempt at novel writing, and making the story believable.

Right now I'm doing a bit of research on feudal/medieval Europe just to give me an understanding on the historical basis of GE. I admit it's already late to be researching a broad topic, but I wasn't sure if I can pull it off, that was, until this month. I figured that I basically know the ins and outs of the game and writing a fanfic novel of GE is something that I should really get started on. I've been wanting to write the back stories of the various NPCs as well as my own speculations of the game's end story, and joining NaNoWriMo will hopefully get those creative juices flowing.

I shall try to blog about the novel's progress here, as I think it's but fitting to talk about my novel writing woes about GE in this blog. Hopefully when the story's fleshed out, I might post a few snippets. :)

This is something that I'd like to do not just for myself, but for the game that I grew to love for the past 2 years.

Let the agony begin! XD
