JordanCon 2016 + Stormfallen Update

So I’ve arrived in Atlanta and booked a room at the Marriott Perimeter Center for this year’s JordanCon! This will be my third year attending the Con, but the first time I’ve come alone. It’s strange not really knowing anyone in a new place. The uncertainty of it all can seem kind of daunting. But, I’m steeling my nerves and moving forward with my head held high. Got to try new things to meet new people!

In an attempt to get more involved, I’ve decided to volunteer. I have 3 volunteer events that I’m excited about, one of which is setting up a writing lecture for the one and only Brandon Sanderson on Sunday. Needless to say, volunteering will be a good way to meet new people and learn new things.

On another note, as of yesterday, I’ve completed the first draft of Stormfallen: The Decrepit Forest. It came out to be 50 chapters and over 90k words. I still have a ton of revision and heavy editing in my near future, but maybe 2016 will be the year of completion. It’s been a long road to completing my first novel and it’s a surreal experience. If you’d like to read the first draft, check it out on Wattpad by clicking the link on the front page of this website. Character profiles and a bonus surprise coming soon!~WM

  1. I posted a comment but wasn’t logged and when I did log I didn’t see the comment I have written so here’s the second one… For me at least. I’m just mentioning this in case there will be a repeat.

    I understand being alone in a new place can be daunting, but I am sure you’ll pull through and actually have fun, especially now that you’ve volunteered.

    I’ll try to read the ending of your novel on Wattpad. No time. Too much work. 🙂 Not complaining since it pays the bills.

    Have fun!
