Progress on Desert Nomad
desert nomad by ~salamandersoup on deviantART
I'm now up to 20,146 words. I'm taking my time with this novel, making every sentence shine. There are absolutely no was's had's or adverbs to be found! I plan to send this novel to agents. Yes, scary as it might sound, I'm going to try to break out of my ebook reign and feel the heat and sting of rejection. It was one of my New Year's resolutions. I'm not rushing it because I find that if I take my time thinking about the plot and the characters, the story develops with much more depth. If I write fast, all I write is crapola.
My question to you is: What would you expect from a sci fi book titled Desert Nomad? What comes to mind? Dune? Luke's home planet of Tatooine? Stargate?
So many stories combine the sci fi with the desert!!! What did you like about them? What drew you in?
