An official entry to Nation Novel Writing Month 2008.
Current Word Count: 15126
The Hand of God is my attempt at a 50,000-word first draft novel for NaNoWriMo ’08. It is about a group of people who find themselves with certain abilities of Jesus mentioned in the Bible. It illustrates their personal struggles and the changes their abilities bring, and hopefully will introduce a little plot to explain the meaning and purpose of their abilities.
This page is dedicated to the story, and my attempt at winning my first NaNoWriMo. I’ll post updates here, excerpts, maybe even the entire thing. I just want to be clear that this is a first draft though. Nothing here is final.
Please support me by nagging me if the word count above is red. That means I’m behind on my word count. If it’s green, congratulate me. That means I’ve managed a miracle. -_-
