Very happy to say that I've made it through last month's event, NaNoWriMo 2021 (National Novel Writing Month) with the goal of 50,000 words, and got some pretty nice progress through my novel correlated to my much larger world-building project, Sooted Star. I'm not yet finished with it, but I am glad I was able to complete what I did and definitely plan on finishing in the near future.
You can read the work-in-progress right here! I'll be posting the chapters to this website as well, so keep an eye out for that.
And as a little breath of relief after writing for every day last month and completing 12 chapters, I finally got a chance to finish this digital painting of one of our Sooted Star characters. Cheers!
