We’re a third of the way through this April’s Camp NaNoWriMo session and I am certainly nowhere near the word count that I have assigned for myself for the month. (20,000 words in case anyone is interested.)
It has, however, gotten very interesting.
As I said in my previous Camp NaNo related blog post, I use the open ended format to basically just increase my overall writing stats instead of just focusing on a particular novel though I did decide to start writing a creepy, thriller style Young Adult novel this month. I created an outline and I even hand wrote about eight hundred or so odd words.
And then I came up with an idea for yet another novel, this time a superhero inspired one. That one now has an outline that is longer than the outline and the words I’ve written for the thriller I started just last week. Oh, and I also decided it was a good time to be inspired to write another fanfiction.
So what does this mean? That I’ve got bits and pieces of so many things started that I’m probably either going to A.) totally meet my word count goal and maybe even exceed it or B.) have so much going on that I lose interest in it all. Right now I honestly don’t know which option is more likely but given that I’ve been blanking on writing inspiration lately I’ll take the overabundance of ideas. At least for now. Unless it drives me crazy.
