July Camp NaNoWriMo - What Am I Writing?


June 17, 2017


   So this is partially me joining in a #CampNaNoCountdown linkup, and partially me randomly deciding that I should tell you guys about what I'm writing for July's Camp NaNoWriMo.

   Because obviously you were waiting to find out xD. 


   I'm assuming that a good portion of you saw my Five Poisoned Apples contest reveal - obviously I'm entering it ;). And that's going to be my Camp NaNoWriMo novella!

   I can't tell you much about it yet (it's still in that super-secret mode, and only a few of my critique/writing buddies have heard anything about it), but I'm hoping to tell you more about it in a few months. I can't wait until it turns into a proper story, instead of a foggy-wild-crazy-idea-in-my-head!

   But (seeing as I'm a NaNo Rebel), I'm not only working on one project. I'll also be writing more of Killing Snow, because I'm WAY behind schedule with it. The story has been changing majorly as I re-write it, so it's tons of fun and tons of stress. At the same time. My head may explode, someone send help.

and here's a messy snippet, because some of my friends said I should share one ...




   So, in a nutshell (and a very short post *cringes*), that would be what I'm writing for Camp NaNoWriMo.

   Except, there's always the slight chance that I might find some fun plot bunnies to go running after, and then I'll have to write even more. Just a slight chance xD.

  1. I'm also a Camp NaNo rebel; I'm working on my writing portfolio, college essays, and the sequel to last year's novel at the same time! I'm going to be super burnt out, but finishing my works is the most important thing. Currently, what I'm writing is for a small contest, but the piece just makes me quiver!

    Just to let you know, check out my blog on Wednesday-- I tagged you in something!

  3. I'm going to be working on my Snow White retelling too!!!! 😁 What's your word count goal? Mine is 15,000 because 1) I've never done Nano and 2) I've never kept up with word count much so I don't know how long it will be... So yeah! Actually planning on doing this link up 😊

    1. It's so awesome that so many people are entering the Rooglewood contest! My word goal for Camp NaNoWriMo is (at the moment) 40k, since I'm working on different projects. We'll see what happens. Best of luck to you, Zane!

  5. I'm doing Camp NaNo! For the first time too. I wrote a post about it, but in short I'm going to be writing a fantasy story about a tournament to choose the next queen of my kingdom! Anyway, I've heard a lot about this book of yours on your blog here, and I think it sounds really exciting and and good luck on the contest. :D

    I feel like I'm catching a cold *PLEASE NOOOOOOOOO!!!!* Colds mean...no writing *eyes go wide*
    Darn. Well, hopefully this is just a warning to get my act together....*sigh*
    I wish you luck fro the contest and camp NaNo.

    1. HA, NEVER. (it's what writers do, you'll have to live with it xD)

      And it was supposed to be kinda creepy so YAY! :D Thank you so much, Ariel! And you'll read more once I write the thing ... which ... could take awhile, seeing as one of my greatest talents is procrastination. I'm quite the expert at it xD.

      THANK YOU, GIRL. Love you! <3

  16. I cannot WAIT to read your Snow White retelling for the contest... although that may be very far in the future, seeing as it isn't even written yet. ;) BUT STILL. You're going to do great, regardless of the competition outcome!

    And of course, this post has more Killing Snow, so obviously I'm on board. xD

  17. I'm doing Camp NaNo!!! I'm working on the same thing I've been working on since November (sigh). I wanted to get the second draft done a loooooong time ago, but it didn't happen. I haven't figured out my goal yet, though. Regardless, I need to start working on it consistently. It's an epic fantasy story with way too many characters, but I love it and I'm not bored with it yet!
    Also, I love the snippet. And I can't wait to here more about your Camp project!

  21. Good for you for writing two things!! I'm pretty sure I'm going to write my snow white retelling but I might try to add a few thousand to Keena (which is what I did last camp nano wrimo.)

    We'll see what happens...
