Who participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this year? I am! (I'm hosting a private cabin, too, so if you want to be in it, comment or e-mail with your username.)
This isn't my first time doing it, but it is the first time I'm actually going to be writing something. I've used Camp NaNo in the past as a way to motivate myself to do edits. But I've been doing a lot of editing lately, and I'm itching to start a new project. I'm especially excited for the Word Wars!
I'm actually really excited about my idea. The inspiration came from a picture I found on Pinterest that made me laugh.
|I'm hoping it's not too small or fuzzy, but in case you can't make it out, it says: A writer's brain. "What the hell is that?" "Oh, just my mind thinking of my next plot."|
The working title for my story is Plot Bunnies, and it's about the characters living in a writer's brain. They all live together, even if they're not from the same book. They hang out, talk, go to group therapy (if they even survive their book), etc. One day, the main character's best friend and sidekick from her novel discovers that The Writer is planning on killing her during an epic battle. The MC can't let this happen, so she organizes a group of characters--heroes and villains alike--to start a rebellion and take over their stories. This is if they can survive edits, character cuts, Writer's Block, the Pinterest vortex, and the Pit of Doubt.
Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this year? What's your story about?
