Nanowrimo Winner

Update #6  •   Posted 1700 day(s) ago

I've done I've totally smashed the 50,000 word count for NaNoWriMo this year by writing 55,679 words and five days early too :-)
It just proves you can do anything when you put your mind to it and work hard enough.

Although the book doesn't end with 55,679 and there is much more left to write until Silver City is complete.

Please check my blog in December for free chapters of my novel Silver City.

If you haven't donated yet don't worry as it's not too late, you still have until the first week of December.

I would like to say a massive thankyou for all of the support from my family, friends, donators and Nanowrimo.

Day Nineteen

Update #5  •   Posted 1705 day(s) ago

Day Nineteen.

I have now completed 32,118 words and I'm well on track to finish my 50,000 novel by the end of the month. It's been an exciting and inspiring process. There are moments when you feel like you've lost the plot as well as the story, unsure where to go from your last writing session but with a bit of perseverance and a positive mind I will achieve my goal.

If you haven't already please dont forget to donate, you will help people all over the world with little technology or education have access to the tools they need in order to write their own stories.

Thanks for reading,

Louise Lake.

Up And Onwards

Update #4  •   Posted 1709 day(s) ago

I have now reached over the halfway mark of 50,000 words with 26,219 words written so far.

I'm feeling very positive of completing my goal before the end of November as promised. It's all up and onwards from here :-)

Almost Half Way There

Update #3  •   Posted 1710 day(s) ago

23,240 words written so far. That's almost half way there. It's been hard with working long shifts inbetween but whizzing through it now. Today I caught up from the past three days word count by writing just over 4800 words but I have stocked up on the coffee and gingerbread syrup for that special treat and christmas feeling. I have a list of sponsors that comes to another £76.50 who are paying me at the end of the month when I have completed my 50,000 word count. 

To all of the people who have sponsored me so far all of your donations are greatly appreciated and to those who have not yet donated please make your donation count!

Thanks For Reading,

Louise Lake.

Novel Prologue

Update #2  •   Posted 1735 day(s) ago

I had never wondered about my existence. Why I am here or what I was meant for. I just know that I have a purpose- even though I don’t really know what that is.

I live the usual life that any reprogrammed technological advancement would. Some people want to terminate us but most however welcomed the idea of a bright new world, supporting the future existence and further developments of our generation. A world where humans and robots can co-exist as equals and live together in a new found society is what we all hoped for but there are selections of religious groups who claim we have no rights, as we are not naturally born into this world as the humans are. The Government tried to resolve this issue with the distribution of free bots to the main conspirators that stood against us. Racism against the bots however continued rapidly against us and many of my kind had to be sent in for R and S, known to the population as reskinning surgery, which is at its best a torturous and long procedure. Eventually the world began to settle and the strikes made against us became a momentary weakness of the past.

I married my third human husband exactly one hundred and twenty one days ago. He treats me how all bots are to be treated-with respectful commands. We have a rather normal approach towards our marriage-minus any feelings of course, as the humans have no emotions towards us and we have little towards them. Except for the small nagging feeling of accomplishing one’s personal best on each assignment we are given. Many call us slaves to the human desire but I liked to think of us as great helpers, as we could do things that humans could only dream of doing. Although we were all kept under strict supervision by our owners. Each of us wore a plain silver band around our arms that would signal any disturbance within our elements. We always followed orders and did what had to be done as we knew no different, that was until an unexpected collision came that would change our lives and those around us forever…

Silver City Synopsis

Update #1  •   Posted 1735 day(s) ago

The world is hit by a sex specific virus that soon aids a new world order being put into practise by the government. Humanity and science combine to create robots that will replace the dying population of the female breed.

Religious groups fight against the developments- seeing the robots as unnatural and unholy beings. Whilst an electromagnetic force field turns the world into a never ending cycle of chaos.

A fembot named Gemini is blindly following orders meanwhile human Marie is taking her last dying breath. Oblivious that their paths are destined to cross, combining into a scientific advancement that could alter the fate of mankind forever.

A final battle prevails to prevent a soul sucking machine from causing the extinction of the entire universe. This is a story of order, love, war, betrayal and extinction of the human race or so it seems…
