For those who are interested, you can check out the NaNo group at http://www.viddler.com/groups/nanowrimo/ There are some great videos on there, and some really neat people. Watch us all go steadily more insane as November approaches!

This culture seems to develop fairly slowly, but then it's a pretty sparse population spread over multiple islands. They don't have the interchange of people and ideas that Europe and Asia had. At any rate, that's a plausible explanation. Oh, and the gnostic warrior priests keep overrunning everything and impeding the progress of science and philosophy.
The NaNo site is up and relatively free of dragons, the writers are signing up, the post counts are climbing....You can almost smell November in the air!
This is where my novel will be posted. This year's story is tentatively titled A Million Sunsets, and stars a herione who reincarnates in different periods of her world's history.

I am an awkward, stubborn, slightly insane woman who would rather talk Plato than Prada, rather watch Frank Capra than Carrie Bradshaw, and rather listen to Norse myths sung in Icelandic than anything currently on the radio. Yeah. Told you I was weird.
