It's that time of year again. Time for National Novel Writing Month where authors scramble to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I am participating again this year, even though I am also working on writing a thesis for my Masters degree (Raving, I am, stark raving mad!!) What makes this year different is that this year I decided to do Taoist theme to the book (see the revelation post below). I love the idea of exploring my own spirituality while my character explores hers.
I decided to not make the references blatant, meaning that nowhere in the book will it talk about the Tao. Instead, the sages in my book will refer to it as the Myst. I do this for a few reasons.
1. It gives me more room for fantasy aspects I would like to add in.
2. My personal interpretation of the greatest book ever written will not be called into question
3. I feel like it makes the concept more accessible to the massess.
Wish me luck!!
