Aspects of Sand is a fantasy novel written for Camp NaNo in April 2021. This is the first version of it, pre-revision. I started writing two days early, on March 30, to give myself some room so that what you're reading isn't a rough first draft so much as a story revisited after a couple days of consideration, but there will still be a lot of rough edges.
This year's theme is zombies, though it's technically optional. You'll find that Aspects of Sand is a traditional fantasy story with zombies, but it's not focused on the overt horror elements of zombie fiction so much as using them as a story tool. I'm also not much for gore, so expect the zombie scenes to be "mild" compared to what you might see elsewhere.
I'm working from an outline that has a more or less cover-to-cover complete plot, so I expect to complete Aspects of Sand within the month (or at least be over the 50,000 word threshold to be called a novel), but remember that what you're seeing isn't a finished novel. Although this is the first novel I'm making publicly available, it is actually my third novel.
If you have questions or feedback, leave them in comments! I'm writing this very quickly and many things have probably escaped my notice. I'll also be updating my blog (available through my profile) every Friday with an overview of my progress and a reflection on my work.

When the sick died and came back to life on Halloween, the night of tricks and horror, the United States issued an emergency Zombie Alert. Alessia, thinking it was nothing more but a joke in the first few hours, felt the full force of the weight the next day when her friends arrive, injured. The dead were rising andit was clear that Alessia, and the rest of the survivors, would have to do whatever it took to make sure the dead stayed dead.
Follow Alessia and the others as they try to survive in a "zombie" apocalypse, while also trying to learn how an outbreak could have affected the world so quickly.
Will they overcome this strange outbreak?
Mark sidestepped another zombie and pulled the trigger downing another zombie before continuing to run. Then out of the corner of his eye, Mark thought he saw a blind open slightly in the window of a grey house on his right. His head jerked to the house as he saw the blind close a second later. Mark took a chance and ran with Rachel up to the front door of the grey house.
Mark pounded on the door and shouted, “Please let us in!”
No reply came and Rachel tugged on his arm, they turned to face their threat. More than sixty zombies where coming towards them and with sadness in his heart, Mark had to accept that this is where he died. Smacking the door one last time Mark’s voice trembling said “Please. At least let her in.”
Shocked Rachel turned to meet Mark’s sad gaze “No Mark I’m not leaving you.”
“Rachel there’s nowhere for us to go and the thought of at least you living makes me happy” Mark replied. Lifting his gun, he shot the closest zombie, not 10 feet away. Pulling the trigger, again and again, Mark took down zombie after zombie. Finally, the gun clicked multiple times confirming to Mark and Rachel it was empty. Zombies continued to close in on them with more on their way. Mark knew he didn’t have enough bullets for all of them.
“I’m sorry Rachel I wasn’t able to protect you,” Mark said as his head and heart sank low.
The Journal of M.A.N Volume 1 follows Mark and Rachel as they try to stay alive in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Along the way, relations will grow and some will break. The only thing that's for sure with zombies is that death will follow; for humans, the undead, or both!!!
It all happened so fast. The government and the military did little at the beginning, claiming it was nothing more than an aggressive flu strain. So many were infected that the sick to healthy ratio was 3/1. Then one day it was like a switch was flipped. Everyone who was sick dropped dead at the exact same time. Everywhere around the world. Numerous countries fell into anarchy from losing most of their populations, and martial law took a hold of the world. Thats when the dead returned, and the real battle had only begun.
