I know I said I was going to write about family again today, this time about family that you find (or that finds you) instead of the kind you’re born into, but, well…
The bathtub happened.
Tuesday morning, while having a nice relaxing soak, I suddenly realized “Camp NaNoWriMo starts this Saturday!” (It’s a sneaky thing, time is.)
Which means, of course, that Friday (today) will be my last blog post before Camp.
Camp NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow and…
… and I still haven’t decided what I’m doing.
I was all set to work on the Elven Bard novel but then I started thinking about using Camp to finish this round of revisions of Onyx Sun instead. I know I’d like to get the Elven Bard novel’s first draft done this year but I can work on it other months and maybe for next Camp and hopefully finish it before November.
And also on Tuesday morning (man, Tuesday morning sure was a troublemaker!) I had a flash of how to start Soraine’s story… (She’s a minor character in Onyx Sun, but an interesting one, and I want to explore her story – which will also give a lot of information on some background events in Onyx Sun, so…)
Then I started thinking about all of my works in progress and thought maybe I should pick 10 of them and add 5000 words to each one. Or 5 novels at 10,000 each. But I really don’t want to commit to 50,000 words this month, not with NaPoWriMo happening too and work being beyond stressful. (Maybe I’ll try that next Camp.)
So, with less than 12 hours to go before the start of camp, I’ve pretty much decided that I’m going to use it for Onyx Sun.
But you know, I still have just over 11 hours to change my mind.
