Nanowrimo Spotlight: Georgi Pendragon

Good morning! Here’s another great spotlight interview, from Georgi. You can find more from Georgi at her personal blog, or her nano profile.

What are you writing about this year?

This year I am writing a fantasy novel about dragons, magic and adventure! A prince is wrongly accused of his father’s murder and a young girl and her dragon must help him escape and travel with him across the world to the safety of the Autumn Court. It is a perilous journey and the girl must find the courage to keep going when it would be all too easy to give up.

What is your favorite movie – you have to pick just one!
My favourite movie has to be The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring. The music is just breathtaking and such a great source of inspiration.

What advice would you give to all your fellow Wrimos?
Don’t listen to that little voice in your head telling you that what you’re writing is rubbish. It’s not. It is a rough diamond that just needs to be polished up and cut into shape. And if you don’t make it to the 50,000 word goal, it’s okay. There is always next time. You are brilliant, brave and bloody fantastic to have made it as far as you have so don’t give up! Your story deserves to be told.

Sneaky Ninja question! What’s the most unusual part of your writing process?
Probably the most unusual part of my writing process is probably my planning, or lack thereof! I tend to let the story write itself and only really plan alongside the story or when I get to a major event. My story surprises me more often than not and my characters never do what I expect them to do!

Georgi Pendragon is a fantasy writer living in England with her devoted husband, their kitty Moxie and corgi puppy Merlyn. When she’s not writing, she is at university studying a degree in Animal Science though she still daydreams about dragons when she should be concentrating on lectures! Currently her two favourite books are The Redwood Rebel by Lorna George and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, both have been read several times over. She likes nothing more than curling up on the sofa with a mug of hot coffee and a good book, though now she has to share her comfy space with a wriggly puppy!

What can I add to that but–thanks, Georgi!
