It's Time for Camp! (NaNo that is)

Happy Friday, Aledan Merfolk! Today is the beginning of Camp NaNo: a month-long, set-your-own-goal writing challenge! It’s kind of like the original NaNo, but you don’t have to write 50k to “win”. I’ve set the goal of finishing the rough draft of Enfields, or at the very least writing as much of it as I can and plotting out the rest so I can keep up the momentum in August. Considering I still haven’t figured out my worldbuilding problem from last week’s update, AND realized the scenes I’m writing currently are in the wrong order, we’ll see how far I get in Camp…

I have my trusty CP Mike to help me with the plotting this weekend, and he’s a superstar, so I’m sure we’ll have it all figured out by Monday 🙂 In fact, I may have figured out part of it on my drive in to work…or I may have screwed up the order of the scenes even worse. We’ll find out at lunch break.

I finished listening to ANCILLARY JUSTICE last weekend and LOVED IT! I loved it so much I re-listened to the last chapter the next day, and as soon as I get through some of the other books in my que I’ll be buying the rest of the series. Mostly so I can hear Seivarden say “Breq” in that annoyed-yet-amused way the narrator does it.

I’m still reading NAME OF THE WIND, and I finally got my B&N credit last week so I bought eight books (I also had a coupon!): SEA OF TRANQUILITY, THE GHOST BRIDE, A STRANGER IN OLONDRIA, HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS, STORY FIX, THE CITY STAINED RED, A HARVEST OF RIPE FIGS, and BINTI. It’s going to take me the rest of the year to read them all! And I still have A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES from my last B&N shopping spree…

Have a wonderful weekend, Aledans, and if you’re in the US have a wonderful Fourth of July!

  1. Busy, busy! Have fun with camp. 🙂 I read “A Discovery of Witches” and I enjoyed it. I only had one issue with it, and that was the same as I had with Twilight: I question the validity of a relationship when it was begun with manipulated emotions. Vampires. What can you do with them? 🙂
