Stars Falling

AugNoWriMo days 1 & 2

So I'm continuing my Camp Nano novel into August. It was a personal goal to finish this novel in July and even though I didn't make it I'm not going to stop until I'm done. There is a little support group in the Life After Nano forums for people still working through August. Come join us!

Day one I didn't write much and only managed 480 words. I skipped over a couple of scenes from where I ended July and I'll just go back and flesh those scenes out later. I hate skipping like that but I have to sometimes.

Today I wrote 2,056 words and made it to a scene I've been looking forward to. My main character uses magic in a big way for the first time and nearly kills someone with it. It was a fun scene to write and flowed very easily. For most of the story I've said how magic responds to negative emotion and is generally a bad thing to have around because of it. Like the Dark Side it brings out the worst in people. Here I got to show it vividly and that was fun.

Today's word count: 2,056

Total word count: 56,043

Additional Author's Notes: I'm giving a heads up here that in this chapter there are events of an intimate nature that take place under the influence of a controlled substance. This was not written with the intent of being dub con and, in my mind when I wrote it and again rereading it, the effects have worn off to the point for both parties that they are able to give consent. Also at no point in future chapters do any of the characters indicate they were anything less than willing. That said I believe it is better to over warn rather than to under warn so I'm giving an additional note here in case that situation might be triggering to any readers.

Author's Notes: I wrote this story for my first CampNaNo this year, a more relaxed month long writing event where campers choose their own goals. I set a goal of 25,000 words and finished with six days to spare. I had a great time writing this story and hope you enjoy it as well. Thank you very much for reading.

Wordle Fun

Keeping with the long standing tradition (I've done this once before) I made a wordle from my NaNo story. It tickles me that the word 'like' seems so popular when I play around with wordle. I must write like a valley girl.

Another Nano Win

I'm really tired right now, but I wanted to say that I reached my CampNano goal today. I went for 25,000 words and hit it earlier this afternoon. The story still has around 2,000 words to go before it is finished, but at least I can claim my little winner's icon once the validater opens in the next couple of days.

I have to say I didn't have the rush of accomplishment when I hit the goal like I did last November. It isn't that I don't like my story because I do. It just felt like kind of a non event, event. Maybe it is because I didn't really have anywhere to celebrate my win. The Shoutouts forum didn't really have a 25k victory thread (mostly it was for 50k-ers talking about their halfway marks) and my cabin has been very quiet as of late. Unless some people come back to life in my cabin, I'm going to be the only one to reach a goal.

Oh well.

I'll post again with my after Nano wrap up after I've gotten some sleep.

This is happening again

I enjoyed last November so much I decided to sign up for Camp Nano this month. I'm doing something a little different and I'm still feeling it out on day 3 but I hope it will come together nicely. They have adjustable goals for the camps so I decided to half what I did in November and shoot for 25,000 words. Currently I'm at 5,000 words and I'm still introducing the world so I could easily go over the goal provided I don't hit any roadblocks.

Wish me luck. :)
