kDira’s World 3 Progress, and NaNoWriMo

It’s been a while since I posted an update, so I thought I would sneak one in rather quickly before I go and take a break.  I have reached the 60% mark of my word goal for KW3, and I hope to have the first draft done by the end of the month.  I have been having morning and evening writing sessions just to get enough words a day to make that goal happen.

I can honestly say that tonight I wrote the most erotic scene I have ever written, and I almost feel guilty… LOL.  Yes, that is a thing among authors.  So expect a little steaminess in KW3.

Now, if you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, November is National Novel Writing Month, and the idea is to write a 50,000 word or longer novel in 30 days (the month of November).  There is a website set up for us to track progress, get support, and so on.  Last year I fell short.  This year I plan on making it, as I have my novel planned out fairly well so far.  What’s it going to be about?

Here’s a little summary…

It will be called Captain Phenom

Charlie Platt is a fifteen-year-old boy with cerebral palsy.  He is a loner that likes to draw superheroes.  Just about everyone at his school picks on him, calls him Charlie Splat.

His only true friend is his next door neighbor, Maggie (Mags) Jenkins.  One day while at a routine doctors appointment he is accidentally given a serum intended for adult test subjects to help cure cerebral palsy, but this particular serum had mistakenly been radiated from being too near an atom bomb being brought into the city by terrorists. 

With the mutated serum in his blood, Charlie starts to feel stronger.  But when he gets put under stress, then he mutates into Captain Phenom.  He sets out to get even with the bullies that have made his life hell, but when he learns of the terrorist threat to the city, he has a new objective.

I know, it’s fairly cliche’, but I think it will be fun to write, and just as fun to read.

So that’s where I am at and where I am going.  It’s going to be a busy month and a half, so wish me luck.
