Yes indeed, today I wrote the first 1,136 words of my Napoleonic sea adventure set in a world of magic novel. I was pleasantly surprised with how easily it started out. Obviously going on the research trip in September (er, not to mention loving the thought of writing a sea adventure novel) helped tremendously.
I am sure the writing won't be this easy for long, so I plan to just enjoy it while I can. It's like I'm setting off on a grand adventure.
For future reference, the working title is "Call of the Sea".
It's obviously not long enough to snippet from yet -- but if progress goes well, I'll post a wee bit before Christmas.
Wish me clear sailing. :)
