Camp NaNoWriMo

Hey, guys! Today is Friday, June 1st, which means… IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF CAMP NANOWRIMO 2012!!!!!

I’m so psyched(!) for this right now, because I looove NaNoWriMo, so getting to do it this month, too, and in August, as well as the usual November, is really, really awesome. I’m approximately 3,000 words into my novel so far. šŸ™‚ (And, as you can probably tell, I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep last night.)

Check out my profile! http://www.campnanowrimo.org/campers/cavy_writes

Brief plot overview my novel (yeah, it doesn’t actually tell you very much, but whatever):

Abigail Lynden — who prefers the Lynden to the Abigail — has more energy than she knows what to do with, so she taps. She taps her fingers, she taps her feet. She taps, taps, taps.

She also solves puzzles. She finds patterns. She does anything it takes to keep calm, to keep sane when life is so uncomfortable and she has so much energy.

So when she inadvertently joins the Numbers Game, and her energy, and tapping, and active imagination are suddenly to her benefit — she thinks that maybe this is her answer. Maybe this is her way out.

Maybe this her chance to change her rhythm. Maybe this is her chance to begin.

Are any of you doing Camp NaNo, too? What are your novels about? (Oh, and a shout out to my cabinmates: Hero, Tatiana, Helen, Teresa, and Katherine. Go Write It Cabin!!! šŸ˜€ )

Well, I’m off to write. Bye, guys! And HAPPY NANOWRIMO!!! šŸ˜€

  1. WHOOOOOOOOO! Camp NaNo! šŸ˜€ (Also, are you in Panera in that picture?)

    By the way, Abigail sounds like me right now. (My RLS — Restless Leg Syndrome — is acting up, so I keep bouncing around. I look like a brain-damaged test monkey, but ah well. xD )

    • Actually it’s the cafe at the Wellington Hotel in NYC, if I remember correctly… that picture’s from when my family visited last summer (coincidentally, we were getting breakfast there before heading off to stalk Figment headquarters).

      Lol, at first you were like, “My RLS,” and I thought you were making a reference to “Rose’s Last Summer,” and I was super confused… and then I went back and read the part between the hyphens and I was like, “Ohhhh…” Yo es intelligente.

      • Ohhhhhhhhhh… it looks like the decor a Panera Bread would have. (What, I’m not preoccupied with Panera! How DARE you insinuate such a thing?! šŸ˜‰ )

        I know! It’s really ironic, haha.
