    Camp Nano 2018

    Hey there! Is anyone else doing Camp Nano this year? I'm trying really hard to write more this year. I've already done way more than expected, so I think a 10k goal is doable.

    What's your goal? I would also love to hear about your project!

    I'm doing napowrimo this month, but I have no idea what camp nano is.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    It's essentially a "Set your own goal" month, where you can practice for November, finish up a project, try something different, what have you. And you can join cabins, which is basically a writing group, so you can have inspiration and help along the way.

    I am! Because I'm insane! I shouldn't be doing it! But I am!

    Basically, I'm writing a murder mystery for Patreon, and I'm dragging my feet because I have a bazillion other things on my plate and I'm none too confident in mysteries (this is my first, though I read/watch them A LOT), so i hope the pressure of NaNo will force met past the insecurity and actually get something down on virtual paper.
    She is like a cat in the dark and then she is the darkness. ~~(=^._.^)

    I got my war paint on and I'm off to go passive-aggressive all over these socially awkward man-witches.
