In the lower villages of Virilia, music is something that brings communities together. Lower village communities are always fairly close-knit, but music is one of the things that always brings a village’s members to one place and helps Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 2 – 2019”
Preptober is finally here, along with the first installment of Preptober Prompts! :D This year we’re starting off with worldbuilding, which is a topic I absolutely love, and I’m super excited to jump into it… so let’s just do that! Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 1 – 2019”
Last year, I started an event called Preptober Prompts to get people excited and thinking about their NaNoWriMo novels for the month of October (also known, in writer circles, as Preptober).

The plot is pretty independent of seasons (at least unless/until we get into winter), so I don’t think it really affects the main happenings of the story.
