Nano Spotlight: Downright Villainous

November 28, 2013

Good morning, friends and followers. I’m down to my last few followers, and I had to include this next guy based on his pitch when he first emailed. (Links have been added by me):

Hey man, My name is Jackson Haime, both in real life and on Nano. This is me dropping a line saying I would be down for an interview.
Points that make me worth it:
I’ve actually self published something!
I’m a three time winner (On a new account)
I write Newspaper articles.
I’m a university student.
There is a MUPPET in my profile pic.

Have a good day! Look forward to contact.

How many times have you done Nano?
I’ve done Nano four times (It’s a new account.) As well as taking part in Camp the last two years, and Script Frenzy when it was still a thing.

I actually found out about it from my Grandmother. Not sure where she heard it from, but she explained the whole thing like it was some contest, ‘Write the novel in a month and then they judge it’. I didn’t get a name or anything, but ‘50,000 words november’ was enough for google. The rest is a little bit of history.

What are you writing this year?
Villainous_edited-1This year I am working on the second part of Villainous, an episodic novel. The novel focuses on a pair of people with minor superpowers who are trying to become modern day super villains. The first part covered how the two came together, and now we are into the stage of them trying to take over the city.

Who’s the best character in the novel?
You’re asking me to pick favourites? I’m going to have to go with Ashes, who is the lead villain of the story (But arguably not the MC.) Due to his position in life and his motivation, Ashes is left to be a really enigmatic character. Almost a cartoon when he is in the Villain character, but actually has a real (Though a little off the rocker) personality when off duty.
Ashes is the driving piece in the puzzle (The corner piece?) You jump into the story about four years into his story, and just at the beginning of Toby’s. Because you are leaping into a character who is more developed by the world of Super villainy it’s a different angle that was a lot of fun to create, and I’ve heard is a blast to read.

What advice would you give to all your fellow Wrimos?
