Thursday 300: New NaNo Idea

Okay, I’ve had a change in NaNo plans. Or a recantation, if you will, in NaNo plans, as I am now back to the story idea I’d planned on doing back in February of this year. Which then changed to another idea I never posted on this blog, which then changed to the siren and werewolves urban fantasy with a Stradivarius thrown in.

The change, however, means that I’m behind in my word count, so I’m here just taking the easy route and plopping in my short teaser synopsis I cobbled together for my profile on the NaNo site.

Plus, I still have few enough words that I’m not sure I’ve come up with anything I’m yet willing to share.

And so, the synopsis for NaNo ’09, which is a rewrite of my ’05 NaNo, Disenchantment.

When a charm-maker attempts to exact revenge upon an old flame, a sorceress, he sets in motion a chain of events that causes the sorceress to fall in love with the local  baron (who’s not the sharpest sword in the smithy) and therefore turn the baron’s betrothed into a dog. Which wasn’t at all what the sorceress intended.

Feeling somewhat responsible, the charm-maker attempts to turn the dog back into her human self, but a difficult task becomes even more complicated with the arrival of the charm-maker’s and sorceress’s old master, who has ideas about tearing apart the barony for its black gold, which he wants to send to a far-off  (read: transdimensional) place called Amreeka…

Can’t post anymore. Must write.

    I hope you’re writing, writing, writing away as we speak. 🙂 Hang in there and good luck on NaNo.
