It is now Day 14 fellow writers of the NaNoWriMo competition. From having to participate in this event, I have found my writing skills are not up to par as they should be, after all going to college to become a writer you should be a good writer correct? Wrong. Writing a novel in one month is proving to be very stressful and challenging.
Many fellow writers and friends are already asking “What’s your plot about? What’s the storyline?” Well our readers will get to hear it first on the beginning of my novel from hell. The novel is entitled The Black Rogue (its copyrighted everyone, no stealing!) and you can already guess where this novel is headed. A woman pirate by the name of Captain Tryniti Brooke de Láuront, is a 20-something devil of the sea. Half-French, Half-English, she has a wicked temper, a love for her family, rum, and the sea. Her parents were famous pirate captains in the hey-day of piracy. She sails with her first mate and sister Azula, across the seas looking for adventure.
After receiving a letter their brother James was in town, Tryniti decides to sail back to France, for he has urgent news. On their way back to France, Tryniti makes a stop in the “Cove” to refresh for supplies, where she meets her family’s rival, Piazzo Dimonti. Piazzo is dirty as they come, and doesn’t follow the Code. Piazzo ends up capturing James Brooke de Láuront, Tryniti and Azula’s brother. James is rescued by a merchant Captain, Sean Reilly. Tryniti accidentally attacks his ship, thinking Captain Reilly is James kidnapper. When the two Captains meet in fire-some battle, their flames of passion arise. Captain Reilly is due to be betrothed to the Princess of France, as Tryniti is set to be betrothed to the Marquis of Winchester of England. Both Tryniti and Sean ran to the sea to escape their fated marriage. But it turns out the two Captains are the ones to be betrothed to each other!
Tryniti refuses to settle down, invoking sea battles against her future husband. But upon request of her dying grandfather, the King of France, she must marry him before his death. Tryniti cannot choose between her duty to the royal throne, and her love of the sea. But she beings to feel passions arising within her for Sean. Will their passions collide, or will they be doomed to fight forever? Piazzo takes the opportunity to capture dear Tryniti for revenge and make her his wife so he can be heir to the throne, which he was cheated out of before. It’s up to Sean to save Tryniti from her death and perilous fate. will he save her in time? And will he finally admit his love for her?
So far in this epic novel, I have exactly 8,766 words. I should be around 20,000 by now sadly. It’s going to be a push to reach 50,000 words, but a pirate of the seas always reaches her goal.
