I must go down to the sea again. . . .

The muse, unsurprisingly, is taking time off to embroider the finer details of the Navy of Faerie.

At that, a good number are historical.  Such as how a disenchantment arms race led to ships being considerably more mundane and less magical than they used to be.  No more using flowers and eggshells as your construction material. . .

They still name their ships after flowers.  Whereupon the muse gleefully drew up lists of names for different squadrons. Not quite on the color principles of the British Navy. . . .

Ah, well, managed to lard in some stuff about smugglers, and some of the navy stuff will appear.

  • not quite normal NaNoWriMo

    So I have concluded my NaNoWri adventure. Both stories are complete for a total of 35,154 words. One small whoot.

  • NaNoWriMo news

    The first novella's first draft is done. At 21,400 words. Hmm. I see a small problem if the second one turns out the same, even not taking the time…

  • NaNoWriMo

    Going sluggishly. Did write something every day, so there is hope in sight.
