Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!
Well, not quite. More like frogs and spiders and snakes and bats and a skunk. Seems one of my cabin mates for Camp NaNoWriMo is turning our cabin into a wildlife refuge. She even has a few stray plot bunnies.
(Okay, the frogs are mostly my fault and the rest are because I was taunting her about being a week (two weeks now) behind on the Sunday Snippet blog hop.
(I was putting frogs in another cabin mate’s bed because she hadn’t created her novel yet so I could add her to the cabin.)
I have awesome cabin mates:
WP is someone that I met a few camps ago when assigned to a random cabin. We’ve Camped together ever since.
D. is a friend I made through a non-writing-related group on FaceBook. I got her addicted to NaNoWriMo – or at least to the Camps.
U.U. is a friend of D’s that she got addicted to NaNoWriMo.
H.W. is the daughter of friends of mine, so that’s how we met. I roped her into trying her first NaNoWriMo event this month.
We tease and challenge and cheer each other on. It’s an active cabin, which is totally awesome – a good cabin can really make Camp extra special.
So, anyhow, I’m at 14k – or will be once I type up the handwritten stuff that I’m going to tackle once this post is done. I’m not quite sure what the end scene of this book should be, so I’m thinking I might just end with what I’ve got written and come up with a real ending in the first round of edits, after I see what effect this book has on the final book.
(I seem to be much better at beginnings than I am at endings.)
I’m still not sure which book I’m going to tackle next, but since I’ll already have made par for Tuesday I think I might just take some time that day and go take over a table at the library and spread everything out and look at what I have lined up for the remaining three books and go from there.
I might even make an outline.
