Well, it’s November already, and here’s how the novel progress is going:
Carl, Angie, and their crew of fellow gamers have been holed up playing the MMORPG Gods of Sundered Heaven (or GOSH) for the past week and a half. They have no idea that during this time the apocalypse has come and gone…leaving them to deal with the aftermath when they finally emerge, blinking, from Carl’s converted warehouse apartment. Will their gamer skillz be enough to help them rescue their friends, get them to a safe haven–and maybe even figure out how to overcome the current threat to humanity? And in the final analysis, will they turn out to be heroes–or just another bunch of geeky n00bs?
Our household is gearing up for NaNoWriMo 2011–we’ll have at least three writers and possibly four.
