Small Snippet of Novel:

Once Isabella had left the room, Oliver dragged himself out of the cot he was lying in. He stumbled his way across the room and collapsed onto the cot right next to Jasper's.

"Jasper, you awake?" Oliver whispered. He was rewarded by the Jasper rolling over to face him. Oliver paused considering what he wanted to ask, "Was that what you lost?" Oliver asked, looking meeting Jasper's eyes.

"Yes," Jasper responded verbally much to Oliver's surprise.

"I am so sorry." Oliver replied. The two boys were silent for awhile both of them mourning something that they couldn't have.

"So, this aether engine," Jasper begins, his voice a bit raspy. "How does it work?"

NaNo-isms of the Day:



Can you guess what words these were supposed to be?


  1. "Balnk" could be "blank." But "Ptreare" has me completely stumped!

  2. It was blank and the other is a jumble of "prepare" and "to", I think.
