It’s November 2nd. We’re two days into NaNoWriMo! How’s everyone doing? I think I’m off to a good start.

I’ve gotten a clearer picture of my plot. Just in time, right? So what is it? Read on:

Morrigan is in a dangerous situation. Her husband, the king, is dead and there are whispers that he was poisoned. Suspicion falls on his young queen, who knows a language long dead and comes from a place where magic is said to be practiced. Though she promised her husband to care for his daughter Snow White, Morrigan is separated from the girl when she has to leave court to say both her life and the life of her young daughter, Rose Red.

She flees to the forest with only her faithful handmaiden as her companion. The two women find they have a guardian in the form of a brown bear who chases off predators and helps them find what they need to survive: food, water, and shelter. As the bear keeps lurking about, Morrigan feels more and more of a pull toward him.

She pushes that aside to focus on how to get Snow away from the devious nobles controlling girl, including Morrigan’s vengeful uncle, Riagan. Her only option is to learn the ancient magic her family had long feared. As she grows stronger, she gains new allies and prepares to save Snow at last.

It’ll probably get cleaned up a bit by the time the month ends, but we’ll see.

Good luck, NaNoWriMo participants!
