NaNoWriMo Coat of Arms

In support of the thousands of bold and dedicated writers accepting the 2012 NaNoWriMo challenge (to get 50,000 words on paper in a month), The Roundtable Podcast invited four remarkable writers to gather at the table and share their own preparations for the NaNoWriMo event.

We continue the discussion – and the fabulous brainstorming – in this second chapter of the four-part podcast. Writerly goodness is had, literary gold achieved, and a NaNoWriMo inspiration fostered!

  1. Peter Ellis says:

    While all the sociopolitical stuff is well and good, I think the thing the thing that will really tempt and drive Elizabeth is “Forbidden Technology”.

    What if someone at the consortium is experimenting with some type forbidden tech and wants or needs Elizabeth’s help to make it work.

    Maybe it is an Internal Combustion Engine, maybe it is an Alternating Current Electric Generator. (I am assuming that within the consortium direct current is allowed but alternating current is forbidden.)

    And of course this forbidden tech would ease the lives of her family if it were allowed, but if it became public that she was working on it she would be expelled/cast out.

    • You’re absolutely correct. While all that political maneuvering and societal navigating is important, it isn’t THE most important thing in this story. If you take a listen to the Halfway There episode just posted, I actually address this very thing (and I only just now saw this comment, whoops!). The technology she brings into the world can potentially change EVERYTHING… that is, if those around her let it.

      I don’t know how much of the science I’m going to get into with this story (especially with this draft of it), but it is along the lines of a highly efficient combustion engine. Thanks for listening and leaving comments!

  2. Okay, toward the end something was said about the higher tech. It reminded me a tad of a twist with A Canticle for Leibowitz. If it’s unknown and secret, yet investigated. Oh that would be cool to hear.

    Great podcast and Starla, you really have a creation here! Solid feel for it. :)
