Creative Carnival – November 8th NaNoWriMo Edition

November 8, 2008

Welcome to the November 8th, National Novel Writing Month Creative Carnival edition!

What is this? It’s a chance to read some great NaNoWriMo excerpts around the blog-o-sphere. It’s also a chance to get feedback on your NaNoWriMo excerpt, if the author chooses to accept feedback. If you need to know more, or would like to submit an article for the next Creative Carnival, read this.

So, without further ado, grab a cup of hot cider and sit a spell – but not too long. You still have some writing to do. 🙂


Paul Anderson presents Three months previously… posted at Clamouring to become visible…, saying, “A flash back to events just prior to the main story – two old friends meet to discuss some mutual acquaintances…”

Tina presents NaNoWriMo Weekend # 1: Word Wars posted at Refine Me.

Shea presents A Nano Excerpt – SheaKoshan[dot]Net posted at SheaKoshan[dot]Net, saying, “Hope it’s all right.”

Bobbi Rightmyer presents The Baby Bones posted at My Muse and Me, saying, “This excerpt is approximately 900 words.”

~willow~ presents RdMyNaNoNo! posted at The Ranting Willow (v 2.0), saying, “The story so far: Jackie Hyde is a mysterious former-human who feeds on blood and nurses a primal hatred of men. She has been proven to be a deadly force on the battlefield, where she can indulge in her appetites without jeopardizing residents of The Keep, her home for the past eleven years. Recognizing her as a legendary creature from their homeland, two men have managed to not just capture her, but somehow tame her, and make her human…”

Annie Evett presents Chapter 1 posted at Mistress Moon, saying, “First chapter of book…”

Annie Evett presents The Recuring Dream posted at Annies Musings, saying, “About chapter 7 in my novel.”

Jodi Cleghorn presents Creative Carnival: Fugue posted at Jodi Cleghorn, saying, “This is an extract from Chapter 3 of “Blue Melissae”. A little preamble brings the reader up to speed.”

vanessa presents Snippet posted at Scribbles of a Completely Sane Woman, saying, “Unedited and completely random. But here it is. Something. A sampling. A snippet.”

Karen presents Racing Heart, First Excerpt posted at Write From Karen, saying, “This is the short and sweet prologue to my NaNoWriMo project. I wanted to make it shorter, but it’ll most likely end up being longer.”


This concludes the November 8th NaNoWriMo 2008 edition of the Creative Carnival. THANK YOU for submitting your links! If you would like to see your work showcased in the November 15th edition, please submit your links here. (Please, one link per blog. If you submit more than one link per blog, I will only use the first link submitted.)

If you submitted your link and don’t see it here, that probably means I received it after the deadline.

Thanks for visiting the carnival participants and don’t forget to check back November 15h for the next Creative Carnival.
