Hello! So, what I’m working on now.
I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of update type posts recently, but I’m working on some more how-to type posts. Which do you prefer?
Project One: Editing My NaNoWriMo Novel
Mission: Prodigy, to be exact. Turns out, it isn’t as awful as I thought it was. Sometimes it’s a pain to read through things I know I’m just going to delete. There’s not too much left to do before I start rewriting it. I’m planning on doing a major macro edit (where I do the rewriting and plot mending), a minor macro edit (fixing anything not plot relevant, anything I missed, how to make it better, etc.), a major micro edit (where I fix the typos, dialogue, etc.), then I’m going to send it to one or two people for their opinions and use some of their suggestions (minor micro edit).
Project Two: Halfway to Fourteen/14
This is in the developing/outlining stage, and I’m hoping to make it easier on myself when I’m writing (as in, not stopping halfway *pun not intended* because I can’t remember where the plot’s going) and editing (as in, actually giving myself something to work with). You’ll probably be hearing more about this in the next few months of Camp NaNoWriMo. Speaking of which, are there any cabins looking for members? This is my first time, so I don’t have one.
Grammar people, should I do Fourteen or 14? Not sure yet, but the “Code name”, so to speak, is 14.
Project Three: Fantasy Gossip
I’ve just developed the idea and characters for this one. I’m really excited about this (although, I’m excited for all of my ideas once I first have them). You saw Kaelin and Trey for the first time here (as well as Kamri and Mason for the first time in a while) More on this to come!
I’ve been thinking about doing two Camp Novels in one session, along with a draft of Mission: Prodigy editing. Is that crazy? I don’t know. My 2017 word is doubtless, so this kind of goes along with it. If it works, it works, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t, I guess. Since I also wanted to do NaPoWriMo, it would be a lot of writing and making sure I’m caught up on school *cue groaning*. I may save Fantasy Gossip for July, if I’m not doing any camps or whatnot.
Are you doing anything for Camp NaNo? Am I too ambitious? How are you surviving through edits? Do you like updates or how-to and informational posts?
