Well, just a quick update on where I’m at, writing-wise, because, hello, THE SUN FINALLY DECIDED TO SHOW ITSELF IN MY NECK OF THE WOODS!!! Time to get myself into a bikini and head down to the lake.
So basically, a couple of weeks ago I shared a piece of freewriting I did, and announced that I was doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month.
And I am. Just not officially.
Mainly because I really have no idea where I’m going with this project. So my goals are slightly undefined. Maybe my goal should simply be to come up with a plotline by the end of the month. Rather difficult to boil down to a word count.
What I’ve been doing is simply sitting down every day with a notebook and pen, and letting kooky characters say kooky things. Most of it is nonsense, but some of it is pretty interesting.
And I’m having So. Much. Fun.
Really, this is my favorite part of writing: Coming up with glorious new people and letting them chatter. So a whole month dedicated to that? Yes, please.
There’s something to be said for starting out on a journey before you know the destination.
