My 2019 NaNoWriMo Project

In the spring of 1989, a disgraced entomologist accepts a research position in China. Under the scrutiny of his new comrades, he battles a dangerous local wasp, but in the process, he engineers an even deadlier species that gains sentience and bonds with his disabled son.

Good luck to everyone who’s doing Nano!

  1. Hurry up and publish a bunch of horror novels already so I can get wrapped up in them! 🙂 I love this teaser, Priscilla. Wasps seem like a good choice for you.

  2. Good luck Priscilla. I wouldn’t be able to touch that project. (The first time I had an anaphylactic reaction to a bee sting, I was many miles away from medical help. I’m more than a little scared of them.) I’m sure it will be a wonderful, exciting story, coming from you. Hugs.

  3. What an intriguing premise! I got stung by a wasp on my writing hand once and couldn’t use it for a week due to the swelling. I’ve steered clear of them since. Nasty little blighters! I look forward to hearing about your progress. Best of luck with NaNoWriMo! 🙂

    1. Dang, you gave my ego a boost, Daniela, thanks!

      My Nano user name is my real name, Priscilla Bettis. Congrats on reaching 12.5. I rushed to get ahead this week because I have out-of-town company coming, so I’m at 17k, maybe 19k by the end of today.:-)

      I’m glad you commented!
