After that emotional day of writing Chapter 21 of my 2011 NaNoWriMo Novel, “Life, Sin, & Blood“, I can safely say that that chapter is done and I’m going to be writing Chapter 22. I bet that within a few days of writing and editing, the novel will be sent to Smashwords for publication.
Anyway, I’m going to be editing my 2010 NaNoWriMo novel, Harry Potter Sucks; A Novel for those who have had it with the Harry Potter Phenomenon and the Hype that it caused. (I recently retitled it How Harry Potter Ruined My Town) The story is about a boy named Daniel Dickens, who is an avid reader of anything fantasy-related despite the fact that his family tries to control which fantasy books he is allowed to read. The city that Daniel lives in consists of a small population of Potterheads (or fanatical Harry Potter fans), who make it a point to force the rest of the city to embrace Harry Potter to the point of shutting out every other book in the world (except for the Bible). Daniel’s family does NOT stand for that crap.
Meanwhile, Daniel’s next-door neighbor, an older boy named Adam Wilkins, is being exploited by his foster family by being forced to star in a homemade movie about Harry Potter. Adam’s disappearance leads to rumors about his death and Daniel’s eventual recruitment into the movie. But Daniel’s resistance to give in to the Harry Potter hype leads to the entire town to admit its problems and being forced to clean up its act.
And now for the stats:
- Last Chapter written: Chapter 11 completed; total 15 chapters plus prologue and epilogue
- Finished: no
- words written: 30,429
- Story renamed as How Harry Potter Ruined My Town
Why is the story not finished: story needs re-editing and chapter 12 needs to be completed. Story to be finished at a later date.
Now you have the most controversial of my stories. I shall finish this one eventually.
