Q&A: What is the Council?

The Council is a board of six Ancients, all men, who have been around since Alexei’s great-grandfather’s time. They, along with the King, make the laws of Nocturna. The Council also takes over ruling the kingdom when the son of the deceased King is under the age of adulthood, while the new King, the son, acts as a figurehead.

NaNoWriMo Writers

As the end of November nears and writers are validating their books on NaNoWriMo.org, I just wanted to say congratulations to everyone who succeeded writing 50,000 words this month!

I also wanted to take the time to say that if you didn’t write the 50,000 words in time, it does not┬ámake you less of a writer. It does not invalidate your ability as a writer. You are still just as much of a writer as someone who did achieve writing 50,000 words.

I’m proud of everyone who even entered the 2015 competition and you’re all winners to me.

This is actually my first time participating in NaNoWriMo and though close to the end I thought I wouldn’t finish it, I pulled through just in time. I’m very happy with my results (despite the massive stress it piled on me since I’m nearing finals week at college). I hope everyone else is as happy as me that it’s over haha.

Congratulations, everyone!
