Another year of NaNoWriMo and I’m determined to complete my novel this year!
So far I’ve written 300 words in the past twenty minutes and am now stopping for tonight to gather my thoughts. I’m not sure where I want this novel to go or even it’s most basic plot outline, but I’ve started with a general description of some places. The following is an excerpt of one of the central planets featured. At least I think it will be a central planet!
Asteria was both a shining example and a dark mark on the galactic parliament. It was never an important planet with merely fifty million inhabitants on the small sphere, most of whom were honest and kind. Its gravitational pull was stronger than the galactic average and reliant on the seasons of which it had twenty-two, all with their own celebrations. Landing ships was only possible during eight of them and it even affected ships passing the planet on their routes in neighbouring systems. The citizens of Asteria were used to the conditions, they treasured the ritual change of seasons and enjoyed not having visitors all year round despite being located near the centre of the galaxy.
Obviously first draft and incomplete.
