Camp NaNoWriMo Days 7 and 8

Whoops! Forgot to write an entry yesterday. So I’m doubling up today.

Today seemed to flow a little easier. I made a rough outline and inserted those as little sections into Scrivener (awesome program by the way. Well worth it, and I believe it’s on sale for Camp NaNo participants.) I wrote a little over 1800 words today, bringing “In The Beginning” up to 19.3k words. I’ve come no closer to naming Anna, but I also didn’t look for any names yesterday.

I have no excerpts for you or anything else at this time. Not because I haven’t written, of course, but because most of what I’ve written has expanded on things that were already posted here. I haven’t gotten much past what was originally written as the “Prologue.” Although nearly 10k words have been added, it won’t ever really be more than an expansion of the Prologue, so for those of you who have read Prologue, you kind of already know what’s going to happen.

But for the rest of you, hopefully, it will be a nice surprise! Thanks for reading, and happy writing!!


PS: Shameless GoFundMe plug I’m of course adding my own money to it every week, I won’t rely on others donations to succeed but I’ll gladly accept help from anyone that is in the right place to do so. Just like when I’m in the right place, I’ll help someone 🙂

Camp NaNoWriMo Day 6

Wow, today was a tough one. I just could not find the thread of the story that I had put down yesterday. I finally found it, about 20 minutes before I was supposed to go to bed, but even then that thread was mighty slippery today.

Anna’s name still remains Anna for now. I haven’t found her replacement, and she isn’t cooperating with a name change as yet. I’ve had a few different suggestions that were okay, but none of them have struck me yet.

As to word count, well I’m still writing, I just wanted to quickly post this before I went and hid with my laptop to try and focus a little better. I’m just over 16k and aiming for 17k before bed.

In The Beginning

Please see explanation post. 

In the beginning, there was the Void. From that Void came the Sisters. The Sisters floated in the empty and shapeless Void and became bored. This made them sad, and they were not pleased with this feeling. “What shall we do, dear sister?” The eldest Sister, Cyrene, asked.
