November Recap & December Goals!

Happy Sunday Players! November was a great month for me in a personal sense, but let’s see what has happened on the blog!

Surprisingly, we published 24 posts in the month of November! I was participating in the NaNoWriMo challenge all month, so I was not as active as I have been due to the challenge. Yet somehow between myself and our contributors we still had a decent number of posts!

We have 1064 Views, 668 visitors and 316 likes!

November Goals

  • Complete NaNoWriMo – Since we are in the month of November, I have been working on the NaNoWriMo challenge and my personal goal is to complete it!
  • 1 Steam Game Review  I have a few steam games that I have yet to play so I look to play them and write up a review this month (Thank you Thero159 for Offworld Trading Company and Amello!).
  • Post at least 3 times per week – The blog activity may not be as frequent as previous months because I’m focusing on NaNoWriMo, but I will try to have at least 3 posts per week for the month of November.

Ach2

The only achievement that we earned last month was the one for Completing NaNoWriMo! The novel is about 51,000 words (I’ve been editing it) and it is a Young Adult, period drama series.

December Goals:

 

  • Complete a Steam Game Review!
  • Set up the GamesUnitedGG YouTube Channel!
  • Launch a community Guest Blog Challenge!
  • Set up the GamersUnitedGG Podcast

Those are my goals for December! As you can see it’s a lot of prep work for our anniversary in January and the launching of extensions to the blog!

Here are our top  posts from the month of November!

  1. Creating a Compelling RPG Villain
  2. Wooden Block Puzzle Mobile Game Review

I did it! I’ve completed the NaNoWriMo challenged and wrote a novel in 30 days (really 29 days because I finished a day early!). It was really hard and as you can see from the numbers, I slowed down towards the end (Thanksgiving played a large role in the decline), but in the end, I’ve pushed through the days of laziness and the days where I’ve felt like i couldn’t write anything and it has paid off tremendously. Thank you to everyone who was rooting for me and everyone prticipating in the challenge.

With the other updates I have included an excerpt from the story, so I will include one final snippet from the book titled: A Dance With Destiny!

Blurb: A kingdom in turmoil, an heiress’ position being challenged, a forced betrothal. Can Princess Ariana carry on the family dynasty of the House of Tamlin with a 16 year old secret looking to take everything away? Told through the eyes of household characters, a journal floats around the land. How will she cope? Will she survive? And will she ascend as the ruler of the kingdom? It is truly a dance with destiny!

The first time that I realized that I could rule was when the Dauphin of France studied at the same library as I. I was away from court for 8 months at this time and my scholars had me studying the philosophies of Galileo. The Dauphin, Francois was announced and he walked through with the arrogance of a king in waiting. Francois was 4 years older than me and ordered everyone around as if he were already ruling the country. I took it upon myself to test all of the skills I have learned over the years through observation and awareness. I introduced myself to the Dauphin and with the flirtatious techniques learned with my mother, I posed intelligent questions that I knew a prince would know the answer to. After flaunting my brilliance and catering to the Dauphin’s ego, I started making suggestions as to how the library could improve its processes. The Dauphin was so impressed that he began to think the ideas were his and after a week, the changes were made. I knew then I had a talent for ruling and a talent for persuasion and the Dauphin set me on a path, that I could not return from.

You may be wondering, why I think that I can be a better ruler. On all of my campaigns, I had to travel through cities that were forgotten. There’s been crime, murder and a disregard for the monarchy. If we are anointed by God, why does so many of our people despise us? It’s because of greed and envy. They want us to treat them as equals when they have not worked for it. Their allegiances are wavering to whomever benefits them at the time and they do not know true loyalty or respect. One of the philosophers that I have been reading says that the only way to truly rule is through fear. Being loved and respected is great, but love is fickle and waivers to the person that is providing the most benefits at the time. I aim to have both. To the outside world I will be loved, the only surviving heir. But behind the scenes, I will have my mercenaries bring law and order through an iron fist and a merciless rule.

This is not the final chapter for me or my work. I am L, I am the only person that can truly bring greatness to our country. Not by kindness and the education of our people, but by ruling with an iron fist. Fear is the only option for a people so proud and entitled. Until I am old enough, I must play the part of the hand that I was dealt. But my supporters are lying in wait for me to rally the nobles and commoners to my side. I will take the throne, even if I have to take it by force.

What I’ve learned?

LP_hero

 

Since this was my first experience with NaNoWriMo and actually completing a story, I’ve picked up some great tips that I want to share.

  • Plan in advance – Creating an outline before you take on a writing task is highly recommended. I am a pantser and I can sit and write quickly once I have an idea, but sometimes I lose my way. That’s where the outline comes in handy! On days that I did not feel inspired to write, I read through my outline and it helped me gather my thoughts so that I could write through the writer’s block!
  • Just Keep Writing – My co-worker Mrs. Michelle is a writer and she has been invaluable through this experience. Any time I have a doubt or I start to freak out because of the pressure, she would give me sound advice. The best thing she told me throughout the process was “Just Keep Writing! Right now you are just shoveling sand in the sandbox. During the editing process you will create the castle.” I don’t know why that saying stuck with me but It did and the analogy helped me succeed.
  • Define Your Characters – So I had a very basic outline that did not have enough information in it, especially relating to my characters. This made it difficult and I had to use standard names until I found better ones to use. Thank God there is a Ctrl + F shortcode that allows you to find and replace words. It saved me in the end. Next time, I will define my characters, their traits and motives before writing.
  • In the end, everything will tie together – I was worried that my story wouldn’t make sense when I was getting to the end. Again, I was saved by my literary Angel Mrs. Michelle, she told me to trust in the system. She said that I would be surprised how everything ties itself together in the end and she was right! I knew somewhat about the ending, but i didn’t know where the gaps would fill in and with which characters, in the end everything seemed to naturally fit together with my outline of What if statements.

I’ve had an excellent experience with NaNoWriMo and I will definitely participate again next year. Now that I have tackled this mountain of a challenge, I will be back to writing full time on the blog starting Monday (a short writing break to recharge lol ). Have you participated in this challenge and what was your progress? Are you currently working on any projects? Let’s talk creative writing!

NaNoWriMo Update & Excerpt #2

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Yes, we are a day early but still, it’s a festive time of year. Today will be another update and excerpt from my first attempt at the NaNoWriMo challenge. To be honest, I feel really good and I know that I can make the goal (as long as I am not comatose from the meal tomorrow). Thank you for hanging with us! I know I haven’t been as active as previous months, but with everything going on in November it has been super busy. I promise to be back to normal next month! If anyone is participating in NaNoWriMo or working on any projects, let me know! I will be happy to check out your work.

November 12th – 1822

November 13th – 1277

November 14th – 2099

November 15th – 1398

November 16th -1593

November 17th – 1888

November 18th – 1339

November 19th – 1364

November 20th – 2711

Total = 15491  Overall total =35378

Writing is going pretty well at the moment. With all of my updates, I will include an excerpt from the story. This time we are introduced to a new character in the mix, Roheysia.

My Chambers, February 4th, 1524.

So this is where all of the royal secrets are being kept. I have to admit, I thought there would be a little more spice in a royal journal. No matter. My name is Roheysia Thorngold and  I am the head lady in waiting to our soon to be queen, Princess Ariana. Ari and I have been friends since we were 5, we’re 15 now. She’s such a great person and I have no doubt in my mind that she will usher in a new Golden Age for our kingdom. She has always been the loyal daughter in the eye of the court, but behind the doors of her personal court, there’s an entirely different game being played. I was 12 when I learned how to kiss. Ari and I would watch the queen’s ladies make their rounds at court. We figured they were gathering information because they were only being courted by court officials, high ranking nobles and diplomats.

Ari and I followed one of the most beautiful ladies I had ever seen. Her name was Ysmay. Her hair was auburn and her skin was as smooth as cocoa. Her hips were curved and her lips were lush. We would follow her and mimic her movements when we were alone. Ari has always been fascinated with women and the art of love. During feasts and gatherings we would watch the different dance styles from over the world shuffle into our court and across our tiled floors. Ari has always been fascinated with dance so she would ask questions to all of the musicians playing their foreign music.

You are probably wondering how I got my hands on the journal. I picked up a few tips from Ysmay and wanted to gather some information on my mistresses fiance. So I flirted with him and his advisor Sterling. Sterling always had a disapproving look at me and the prince when I would drop by to lighten his load. There was a lingering stare that Sterling would give me that gave me the idea of seducing him as well. When the prince and Sterling returned from their campaign in Mythonia, his grace sent for me to accompany him after his travel. I showed up in the finest silks that I could fine. The seamstress detailed the gown to accentuate my bust and peach shaped bottom. The gown was so tight that I felt as if I had nothing on at all. I followed the prince to his chamber that was connected to Sterling’s office and as the door shut I peered over my shoulder to see the advisor still admiring my assets.

After my visit with the prince, Sterling was staring at my bust and I noticed that he had this journal hidden underneath the papers on his desk. I engaged him in frivolous conversation and using the techniques that I had learned, enticed him to walk me back to my room. I planted a kiss on his cheek and he invited me to a picnic the next afternoon. My charms have never failed me, the nervous Sterling cleared his throat and walked off. Before the picnic the next day, I went back into the study and grabbed the journal. My Lord Sterling was predictably heading to the kitchen, I’m assuming he was checking on the dishes that he had prepared for our picnic. And now we are here!

Anyway, the journal entries from Lord Gabriel and Sterling are from outsiders looking in. I’m here to tell you the behind the scenes action only someone close to the princess would know. Great, Prince Adrian has called us all to the hall for an announcement. I will update the journal soon.

-Roheysia

Have a great weekend! What are you currently working on? Any plans for the holiday? Let’s talk!

NaNoWrimo Update & Excerpt #2!

Happy Sunday Novas! Our good friend IgnitedMoth posted an update from the NaNoWriMo challenge for her first week. Check out her progress and say hi! Since the posts have been less this week due to my focus on writing, I’ve decided to follow suit and post my progress so far. Below you will find my word count for each day of the challenge so far!

November 1st – 1788

November 2nd – 2846

November 3rd – 1393

November 4th – 2194

November 5th –2107

November 6th – 2446

November 7th – 182

November 8th – 1766

November 9th – 1453

November 10th – 2457

November 11th – 1255

Total Count 19986 (includes 99 words left over from last night).

I’m really proud that I have been making so much progress on the novel. I’m trying to stay motivated and dedicated as this will be the first novel that I have completed if I meet my goal. This post will include another excerpt from the novel. If you would like to read my first excerpt, please click here!

La Roja City, Mythonia  April 15th, 1523

“I am sorry to have to bring you this news Adrian, but you are now the head of the House of Star.”

The crown of his father was too heavy for the young prince and the burden of a country now lay at his feet. Adrian was a rambunctious boy who lived life as he saw fit. The day I had to tell him that he and his little sister Princess Lara were the last 2 remaining heirs of House Star, was the saddest day of my life. I could see his joy and happiness slipping away, but immediately I had to make sure that he was aware of the magnitude of this honor and on how quickly we had to move to install him as ruler.   son_of_morzan_by_murtagh231-d4by9kl

There’s no time for Adrian to grieve. His uncle is starting a petition throughout Mythonia to be installed himself, as king. It’s no secret that his uncle Bastion has been an envious brother to the deceased king. It’s no surprise that Bastion is reaching for the throne before the king’s body’s even cold yet. We have to make sure that the council and kingdom views Adrian as the heir apparent and a strong leader to place on the throne.

I have convinced the council to hold off on the coronation of Adrian until he has found a suitable bride and married her. We need a strong marriage and hope for an heir to really solidify Adrian’s position. My prince is very “Fluent” in the language of love. His courtly love games and flirtations are known throughout the kingdom and it has damaged his image as he is now expected to turn into a respectable citizen and ruler. We have to get him married quickly and before anyone realizes that there is another candidate in contention for the throne.

I’ve received numerous messages from kingdoms offering up their princesses to Adrian. He is handsome, rugged and has a zest for life so I’m in no way concerned about the suitors not being attracted and faithful. But we need supporters. We need a country that brings wealth, a strong lineage and a great reputation to bring validity to Adrian’s rule. When I received a letter saying that the Princess Ariana of Tamlonia had come of age, I knew that we had a perfect match. Tamlonia and the House of Tamlin is one of prestige and respect. Their trade routes are some of the most lucrative and the princess is the most eligible bride on the market. I contacted the ambassadors of Tamlonia and proposed the betrothal of Adrian and Ariana. 2 Young, beautiful rulers that will most definitely create heirs and unite the 2 kingdoms.

Sterling, Prince Adrian’s Advisor

 

What do you think so far? I’m really proud of my work and I know that the editing process will be the hardest part, but I’m optimistic! Are you currently tackling the NaNoWriMo challenge? If so, how’s it going? Are you currently working on any projects? Let’s talk writing!

NaNoWriMo Update & Excerpt!

Happy Saturday Novas! Today is day number 4 in the NaNoWriMo challenge and I am ahead of schedule in word count. I’m trying to keep up with my schedule and write everydayuntil I have nothing left to write. This way, if I miss a day or have writer’s block and can’t hit the target word count, I would have built up a safety net. A while back I posted about possibly sharing some clips from the story that I am writing and you guys were great in saying that you would love to read an excerpt. Well today will be the first day that I let anyone have a peak at the story. I hope you enjoy!

My Novel: A Dance With Destiny

Genre: Young Adult / Fiction / Period Drama

Blurb: A kingdom in turmoil, an heiress’ position being challenged, a forced betrothal. Can Princess Ariana carry on the family dynasty of the House of Tamlin with a 16 year old secret looking to take everything away? Told through the eyes of household characters, a journal floats around the land. How will she cope? Will she survive? And will she ascend as the ruler of the kingdom? It is truly a dance with destiny!

Fort Canon August 5th, 1523

We were ambushed, but we finally have time to rest. Lexington is lost and the nobles are searching for us to finish the job. The battle was lost, we didn’t stand a chance but I have the king with me. He’s bloody, but he’s alive and we have to get him to safety. The extraction unit is myself and 3 of the king’s knights who were not slaughtered at the feast. There were 12 of us 2 days ago, but the combination of the cold and lack of supplies has cut through our party like the plague. Julius, the youngest of the guards is a mere 14 years old, yet he has the gall of a man. He found this abandoned fort when I asked him to scout ahead. We have to rest because the king is unwell. His wounds are deep and he has lost a lot of blood. We can’t move him too far at a time. I cleaned the wound where the spear was launched from the crowd through his gut. The good thing about the mountains is that you can get water from melting the snow.

I didn’t think he was going to make it. After the attack I sliced the long end of the spear and carried his grace out. Lucky for me, Angelina had told me a story about a rendezvous that she used to have. She would use the servants entrance through the kitchen to get to the hall in Bancroft Manor. The servants entrance was littered with secret passages so I chose one and it lead us out behind the pig pen. Had I not known about this passage, I don’t know if any of us would still be alive. period This fort contains a few pieces of iron so I had a fire built to keep his grace warm. Plunging the iron bar that I have found into the fire, I cauterized the wound that is taking the life of my king. I cannot let him die, but if we do not find refuge soon, his grace will not make it. Julius caught 2 squirrels and we fed the king and allowed him to sleep. Now I stand watch and plot our next move. The problem is, that I do not know which cities are still loyal to us. Lexington has been loyal to the Tamlin Family rule for centuries, so if they’re turned, who knows who we can trust. I have a map of our surroundings so I know that Tarringdale and Santa Lucille are pretty close to us. I guess I’m going to have to pick one and hope to God that they have not turned against the crown.

There’s a snippet of the story. What do you think? Are you working on any projects or stories right now? Let’s talk!

Happy November & Updates!

Happy Wednesday Players and Happy November! It’s time for the National November Writer’s Month or NaNoWriMo challenge! Because I am planning to take part in the challenge (where I am tasked with writing 50,000 words on a novel) the month of November will be a bit different. I want to give a great effort for my first go round with the event. What that means is that the posts will most likely be lesser this month than normal.  I would say may 3 posts or so a week. If you could like to add me on the NaNoWriMo website my username is Luna26x.

Upcoming Posts:

This week I have a few posts set up and they will go out sporadically. I have a game review for the mobile app SpurtDot set to go up most likely tomorrow. I have an update on the mibile game Sky Island coming out soon and the Memoirs of a Villain post is being worked on as well. Lastly, I was nominated for the Perfectly Imperfect tag by Mahddyboy last week. My response and nominations of that post will be up sometime within the next week as well. I will try and have consistent content but Call of Duty WWII also releases this week soooo…. I’m going to be playing the game all weekend lol.  gaming

Also, whenever my WWE Slam Crate for this month arrives I will have an unboxing post as well. I’m excited because this month we receive an Alexa Bliss shirt and the final connecting piece to my attitude era ring (currently I have Stoine Cold Steve Austin, Triple H and the Undertaker)! While I am focusing on the writing challenge, I may reblog some of my favorite pieces of work from the year. If you have mised anything, make sure to check out the posts!

What are you up to this week? Is anyone participating in the NaNoWriMo Challenege? Let’s talk current projects!

October Update!

I have not posted, AT ALL this month…I am so ashamed. Let me cut right to the chase and explain why I have been so MIA these past few weeks…

  • Work: As some of you know, Luna and I work at the same place and recently some changes were made and out Internet usage has been limited.. Trust me folks, we cry everyday about this. The boredom is REAL.
  • Relationship: My boyfriend, the magic ki7aoMechanic, has recently been promoted to Manager/Mechanic and has been given the challenge of running a new shop for the next 30 days! Woohoo!! Exciting changes are on the horizon for us but it is kind of stressful for him so I am trying to be crazy free for the next 30 days…Now some of you are like, “Wait, wait, wait, did she just say crazy free”?  Why yes, yes I did. Ladies and gentleman, I am a crazy but loving girlfriend which means I am constantly hangry and wanting chicken nuggets. IS-THAT-A-CHICKEN-NUGGETWith my boyfriend’s 30 day challenge ahead, I want to make sure that there are no distractions at home that would cause any stress to him! It’s already been three days and I’ve only had 1 meltdown…that’s a new personal record.
  • Mentally: If you have ever watched  an episode of Scrubs and seen JD zone out and let his mind have one of those moments, that’s basically me. I am the girl version of JD. I always have 34646412175 random thoughts going through my mind and it’s hard for me to settle down and write. I also have these depression spells where I basically refuse to do anything or see anyone because I can’t get myself to walk out of my house.
  • Writing Rut: We’ve all been through the rut. You know the drill. Any time you try to write out your thoughts it ends up becoming empty scribbleswritersblock

I am starting to feel like myself again so hopefully I will have some posts coming out soon! It’s kind of weird for me to write about my life, how I feel, and what I am going through but I think it will make myself and my writing stronger. I will also have some of my Poetry and Creative Writing for you to read in the next few days as well!


It is still the month of October which means HALLOWEEN is upon us! MUAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.marge.

I have a mini pumpkin that needs to be decorated for our Mini Pumpkin Contest at work and I still have to find and make an appropriate costume for work. I have a few ideas and I wish I could share them with you but I don’t want Luna to know as we are very competitive when it comes to work contests!

So far, I have watched random episodes of the Walking Dead, the Addams Family, the Addams Family Values, Jason goes to Hell, Michael Myers, Twilight, Hocus Pocus, the Nightmare Before Christmas, Chucky, Ghost Adventures, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and a few others that have played randomly at work.  I think I have a good mix of Zombies, Vampires, Monsters, crazed Dolls, and Witches so far going on for this month for me!

With only a few days of October left, I can only feel Thanksgiving and Christmas just blurring by right before us! As much as I adore Halloween and the spooky vibes that it brings, I am super excited for Christmas! My boyfriend’s family from Mexico will be coming for the first time and we already have plans galore for different activities in the area! I love to craft so I may try to make my own Disney Ornaments this year!!! craft

I have so much to plan… Until next time…

Nagems-
