Princes of Dol Amroth
February, 25 2006
Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.
Well, NaNoWriMo is over, and I didn't make 50,000 words (Una did! Congratulations!). Only 41,600, and about 9000 of that was Chapters 5 and 6 of Passages. (Hey, I wrote that part of it last month, didn't I?) But it wasn't a wasted effort-actually working with my characters gave me some insights and ideas.
Thanks to everyone who reviewed me on the MEFAs! Needless to say, I was very pleased with the way things turned out!
And I'm not exactly certain, but I think that Andrahar may very well now be the winningest OC in the history of the fandom! A story featuring him written by Soledad (Face of the Enemy) won a first in the Mithrils last year, Trust by Dwimordene won a first in the MEFAs this year, my Last Rites won a second in the same category, Altariel's The Lost, in which he also played a part, took a third. Off-handedly, I can't think of another OC who has been featured in stories by four different authors that have all won awards. Go, Andra!
Hope you all are enjoying Passages so far. Brand has certainly been insistent! I'll be posting Chapter 6 on Sunday, and I think I'll have 7 the following week. Hopefully, it will finish up around Christmas time.
