After much thought and many, many hours of telling myself I wasn’t going to do it, I decided to do NaNoWriMo. What I will be working on with my writing partner Nevi, is a rewrite of a fanfic we wrote back in 2005. The story veered WAY off the canon of the series and we’ve been talking about making it into an original story for several years now. Now that we have a nice rhythm for our Parliament of Twilight stories, we thought that working on something else in the in-betweens would be fun. And would definitely be a good way to keep us from getting lazy.
So if you want to keep track of our progress or if you’re doing NaNo and want to add us to your writing buddies, our username is hermienevi. My username for when I go it alone is just hermie, though I don’t think I’ll be doing this year (unless I get an undeniable urge to torture myself with two concurrent NaNo novels AND still working on the POT stuff.)
In other news, while we were in Pennsylvania at Nijicon, we were interviewed by the Podcast Capes and Scowls. You can find that audio here. We’re a few entries down under “Parliament of Twilight.” Leander, the super nice fellow doing the interviews, was amazing and we’re really grateful he gave us this opportunity. There are a few other interviews from Nijicon, so if you’re looking for other M/M, Yaoi, Slash, or boy porn creators, give them a listen too.
For those of you who have already picked up a copy of POT: Ep 1, you can join in our fun new game of casting the actors we’d like to see play our characters in a movie or TV series. If you haven’t picked it up yet and want to be bombarded with smoking hot reasons to do so, come on over and look at what people have been suggesting. In order to make, like, or comment on the suggestions, you need to sign up to the site, but the process is free, easy, and you can just use your Facebook if you like. There are some really great suggestions and you can see the comments made by myself and Nevi. They really give you little nuggets of insight into our writing process and inspirations.
EDIT: the nice fellow from Capes & Scowls is Leander, not Lysander. He is not the adorable elf from that book I loved when I was younger. But he totally reminded me of him, so I got confused. I’m sorry.
