Congratulations. When you get out of traction and physical rehabilitation, let us know what your story is about.

re: NaNoWriMo

Haha thank you everyone!
It's a dystopian/thriller. I am not sure how well I've done in it, but I guess we shall see soon enough. I've still got a bit of work to do before January 31, so I can get it published etc. If y'all know of any professional copy-editors, I would be extremely grateful if you could refer me to them. Also, I could definitely still use prayers that things would go well and my novel would be published.
The name of my book is "The Beholding". I will copy-paste the synopsis for y'all. (It needs some work, it's just a rough synopsis I set up at the beginning of the month.)

re: NaNoWriMo

Synopsis
In the world, unlike we know it, it is the year 2619, and every year, there is a "ceremony" called the Beholding. All thirteen year old children come to be Beheld and have their looks evaluated. They are labeled either Unsightly or Sightly. It is believed that the Unsightlies are smarter, stronger, simply an all around a higher race of human. The Sightlies are looked down upon, abused, practically shunned. Parents abuse their children to save them from the terrible title…save a small percentage of the populace, who believe their children are as they were meant to be. Such as Celeste's parents. Celeste was labeled a Sightly, quicker than most. She comes out from the Beholding with the marking of a Sightly, forever changed. She and her best friend Reve both, must wade through the muck that is society to figure out what's really going on.

Interesting twist, that being good-looking is frowned upon. Sounds like you have the makings of an intriguing story there!

re: NaNoWriMo

Whoa, I want to read it now haha. That sounds like the makings of a great story! I, on the other hand, chose to be an engineer for a reason. I got tired of writing 2 page papers 4 times a week in my ap lit class in high school, although I did enjoy my Lord of the rings 100 page paper final :P

re: NaNoWriMo

lol Thank you!
I can understand what you mean, actually. I definitely do not enjoy writing papers. With a story, you don't need guidelines. You make your own. You don't even have to necessarily use correct grammar, if your character doesn't speak very clearly or some such thing. But yeah, papers aren't so much fun. Especially not if it's four times a week. xD
