It’s the tenth Day of NaNoWriMo, and the time has finally come. If any of you have been wondering and waiting to see what the novel that Lizzy and I are writing is about, I’m about to reveal it for the first time. The truth is, there are only a few people who I told about the plot. All of them were either family or very close friends (you know who you are…as I told you). I don’t know if Lizzy has shared it with anyone, but she lives in Florida, so it doesn’t really matter. I chose to keep it to myself for the time being.
When Lizzy and I decided to do a NaNo book together, we spent a few months coming up with an idea, then we chose something, and spent a few other months fleshing out the two main characters. The only preparation that we did for our co-authored project was literally the very basic plot, who the two protagonists are, and some cultural research. Everything else is being written in the story as we go, and so far, it’s pretty cool. Both Lizzy and I are happy with it.
So now, for the first time revealed to the world, is the plot for The Pharaoh:
She’s an Oracle. He’s a Pharaoh.
She is a priestess. He is a god.
She’s is a beauty who desires nothing more than to live for the gods. He is a monster of a man vexed by disturbing dreams.
She is his key to unlocking the meaning of the dreams.
Set in ancient Egypt, The Pharaoh is retelling of the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast. It will warm the heart and show that no matter how a person seems to be on the outside, there is something else on the inside waiting to be seen.
There you have it, folks. The plot for our NaNo project. Mind you that it’s not the same as the classic Disney tale. But rather a retelling. The elements are there, but it’s a new story. Tomorrow, I will give some details about the characters and how Lizzy and I came to create them the way they are.
Current word count for The Pharaoh: 30,365/50,000
Don’t forget to check tomorrow to hear details about the main characters! It should be a lot of fun!
