Travis always wanted to try his hand at writing a novel. He had tried to write a couple, but never felt motivated enough to finish them.

By a chance encounter, he comes to know of a writing contest called NaNoWriMo, where participants have to write a novel in one month. Thinking that the deadline (and the fact that it is a contest) will motivate him to write a complete novel, he decides to sign up.

Will Travis be able to complete his novel this time around? And what adventures await him on his journey?

Probably the only novel on NanoWriMo that you'll (n)ever read.

As most of you must have guessed, I got this idea while thinking to come up with a theme for my NaNoWriMo 2016 entry.

Dystopia

It's 55555 AD, and Canidice Pint is one of the few young adults left in the compound. The Human Race's numbers have gone down to shocking numbers due to radiation poisoning and warfare, and Canidice's generation has the lowest count yet. There are 151 of them, and she's one of them. One of 151, 1 of 22 young women. Her 22nd birthday is approaching, and with it, an onslaught of attention from most of the 129 young male adults, and some of the girls too. There's no law saying she has to marry, and in fact she doesn't even want kids, but the pressure of society forces her to do something no one has done in centuries. She leaves the compound, and something even worse happens. The rest of the 151 start to follow her once they realize it's safe on the outside after over 2000 years. Some of them leave in search of their friend who's been spiraling into the abyss of insanity for years, some in search of the girl they might marry, some in search of a new chance at life. With only a week's head start and a single message in the sky as warning, Canidice must evade her soon to be captors while figuring out how to survive in a hostile environment to gain what no one has had for so long. Freedom.

There was only one reason Joyce didn't die the day everyone else died.

Sitting on the toasty ecru sand of a beach Joyce had never visited before, the blood-warm waves lapping at her feet, that one, subtly obvious reason came crashing down on Joyce's eyes like a spotlight spawning in pure darkness.

The single, definitive reason Joyce didn't die with the rest of her family when her world ended in a huge, flaming red firebomb, was because she had already died long before any dictator could launch nuclear bombs at her home country.

NaNoWriMo Goals:1,000 words per chapter, a chapter every two days at least, and that will only get me to 15,000 words. But this is my first NaNoWriMo, so little steps.

This story inspired by Maria from MariaTJackson over on FictionPress. Thank you, Maria! Also, if she's reading this, pretty funny that we the idea rolling before NoNaWriMo, huh? Also, she's on Penana as Maria3313, so if you see a comment and I don't reply, then that's a hundred percent her and I'm just AFK.

Summary: In a highly industrialized world there stands a large city, within these walls lives Maria Wolfe, she was a regular human who only dreamed of freedom outside the prison with no walls, where everything outside the city limits was off limits. Even the beach was now called Forbidden Beach, only the land and sea around fishing companies was "safe", orange buoys floated out to mark the limits.

Animen, a race of people with a variety of animal-like appearances and traits, are heavily persecuted, and are sent alone into the Forbidden Woods, but legend has it that a stretch of land far south in the woods leads to a paradisaical land where these people live happily ever after...the Company wants this land.

Yes, this story will eventually return, hopefully by the end of 2019. However, it is not the same as it was before. I have changed names and certain details because I want this story to be as strong as I possibly can make it. If you've read an earlier version, I hope you think this one improves upon the last greatly. If you're new to this story, welcome. I hope I do not disappoint.

After the terrorist attack of 2039, the American people are seeking revenge. With the nation in shambles, it is up to James Henry Matthews II to take down the terrorist and bring America back to its foundation.

***

James Henry Matthews II  is the common go-to guy for vengeance and murder, but after a mission gone wrong, he is scrambling to restore his honor and his life at home. However, with many twists and turns, James realizes things aren't as they seem. With the nation's hope and the guilt of his brothers death hanging on him, he may crack under the pressure. Will he and his friends complete the mission?

***

Lucy Rodriguez is a young mastermind, and behind the terrorist attack of 2039. But when a mystery boy comes around, she begins to question everything she knows. What has she been hidden from? What should she do next? The answers to her questions lead to death, one way or another, but whose side is she on?

Thanks for checking out the intro to my novel! Now, here's for some dedications and why I wrote/am writing this.  :)

I got the idea for this novel for several friends of mine who have been struggling with family life / struggling with depression / ect... Though they go through this, they still have the time to keep me company and make me laugh. They'd tell me things they tell no one else and over time, it begins to affect people. So I intertwined it into this novel, what happened to them.

So I dedicate this novel to them. Cassidy, Jasmine, Jason, Leah, James.

Kaera Calyphian is a girl in a kingdom full of corrupt conquerors, swift thieves, and blood-thirsty assassins. But, Kaera has had her own share of crime as well. At the age of eight, her parents threw her out on the streets and in order for her to fend for herself...she had to steal to survive. Eventually, the inquisition caught up to her and she's been on the run ever since.

That was seven years ago. Now, she's seventeen and it's becoming harder and harder to survive. But, when Kaera finds a quiet forest in the middle of nowhere to hide out in, the inquisition manages to find her again. In the midst of running away, Kaera falls down a dark hole and ends up in another kingdom...one even more ruthless and uncanny than the one she lives in now.

Kaera will soon be led on a quest into the wildest parts of this new kingdom and might learn more out about herself in the process.
