A new chapter of More to Life is up! Maria spends a bit more time exploring Bangkok on her own and reflecting on her past. The chapters get more and more fun to write.
          	
          	How are everyone's nanowrimo or writing projects going? Hopefully well :)
          	
          	I thought I'd try to do what I could this month and work is about at the point where it's telling me I have to stop writing daily, unfortunately, but I made it to 13,000 words which I'm happy with since I'm someone who can spend over a week writing a piece of a chapter here and there.

@MairaDawn Thanks! Very true. It'll at least give me enough chapters to make it to the new year. Hope you NaNoWriMo is still going well too.

Shout out time! 
          
          Explore a rich underwater world full of adventure, new technology and even some well-justified animosity toward the human world in @MairaDawn 's adventure Sea Bound. Sonora doesn't realize what is in store for her when she goes snorkelling after a trying day at work and is swept away by a guide to this unfamiliar underwater world. You'll be caught up in this unique world interwoven with ours, with interesting characters, and the compelling conflict with a crazed-scientist who is a constant threat to the people of the sea. This story has something for many readers: adventure, science fiction, romance and fantasy. I'm almost caught up to what is posted, and it's definitely worth checking out :)

Looking for a great adventure story? Check out @AEPennymaker 's Watty Long-listed tale "Shadow Road" to see how Brennora handles running for her life after a shipwreck and the disappearance of her father. Shadow Road brings a richly-detailed world to life, through the eyes of a young woman who is facing a big change from the sheltered life she lived before her family's business and home went up in flames. The opening completely drew me in with its compelling characters and unique descriptions. I highly recommend checking it out.

Wanting to get lost in an interesting and richly-detailed story to forget that summer's fading away. Check out @MinaParkes 's Blood Bound: Lore of Penrua. This immersive fantasy story has great, vivid description and intriguing characters including Lady Mhera, the niece of an Emperor. Her world is soon shattered by the brewing rebellion of the magic-blooded undercaste, forcing her to make a very difficult choice. It's very well-written and easy to lose yourself in the great world that Mina has created. If you're hooked, you're in luck. The book is complete and a sequel is being posted :)

Thank you for all your comments, I appreciate them and I love More to Life

@Ivy_Cambridge My please, I really enjoyed Tick Tock and wish you all the best in the Wattys. Not a lot of stories on wattpad deal with Alzheimer's so it's a good choice of topic. Thank you so much for continuing to read and support More to Life. So glad you're enjoying it :D

@xkalopsia I'm really enjoying it so far. I found it via Ivy_Cambridge's Watty's2018 book, and I can never turn down a travel story :) The idea you have for the series of short travel themed shorts is great.

#UMM 2/2 If you wanted, you could play up a contrast of a pleasant image of her and Khai as adventurers, and the reality that you wrote in later in the scene which could deepen the expectation vs. reality theme you already have going. Though this may play her character up as more of an unrealistic dreamer and you may not want that. I pointed out what I could find grammar-wise, though the chapter is quite clean. The pacing works well and I get the sense that conflict is slowly brewing along with adventure. I always enjoy coming back to your story :) Great work!

#UMM Great chapter. The awkwardness was well-captured for Nadia and Khai, not enough to be too obvious, but enough to make the reader see that this isn't quite the paradise couples vacation she imagined. Though at the same time, it has that realistic feel that sort of counters all those movie-magic moments. If it wasn't for Nadia's fears and near acceptance that she may be forgotten, then the tangled hair, awkward hug and kiss could be overlooked as life not matching fiction. I'm not sure what is causing Khai to be suspicious of her happiness either, but it's another troubling sign. The fact that she is considering her options if things didn't work out shows that she's strong and that this trip is something she truly wants to do. A more cautious and anxious person would have maybe held off on going when there was less contact from their significant other, but Nadia is prepared to make it work either way which says a lot about her determined character and a bit about her realistic expectations for her partner. I liked the variety of sensory descriptions that you gave, making the place seem a bit sterile, intimidating and unpleasant, much like how I imagine the trip would feel after this meeting with Khai. It was neat seeing how the customs agent's attitude had the power to change Nadia's too. Easier once you know you're allowed into a country. My one critique with the descriptions was that most of the descriptions that made this feel like Colombia were at the very beginning and after that mainly limited to dialogue. Since this is a big exciting trip abroad for her, I imagine she'd pick up on the little things (since she mentions that ambiance of adventure and soaking it in, which both sound positive) like the way regular people dress and act, differences and similarities in the food available, even a poster or ad directed at tourists that might place her in the state of mind of visiting such a place with Khai. I'm sure you can think of the others that I'm missing.
