Well, it seems that I'm going to try participating this round in A Round of Words in 80 Days
I've never really finished writing anything and I also never shared with others that I write at all, but that's going to change, starting now ;-)
About my goals: I plan to write a romantic novel with a Fussball (=Soccer)-playing hero. It's rather a coincidence that I started plotting around the time that the UEFA EURO 2016 started, but this makes it easier for me to do research.
The story takes place in Dortmund (a city in western Germany) and I will write in German, so I won't be able to share anything I have written, unless anybody speaks German? ;-)
Since I don't have a clue how many words it will actually take to tell my story, I took the wordcount from the example project.
- 60.000 words
Apart from that I will have to do quite some research, but I won't be able to quantify it, so I'll just note down the things that I know I will have to look up and write further about it in future blog posts.
- Day to day life as a professional soccer player
- visit Phoenixsee in Dortmund
- game mechanics of soccer
- benefits for single parents at TU Dortmund
