Remember my last blog about me writing fantasy? LOLOLOLOLOL.
So I’m not now. I mean, the idea has been put aside. Maybe one day I’ll write a fantasy, but right now I’m sticking to something I can handle. And an idea that is a bit more shaped out, if that makes sense.
Typically I decided on a new idea for camp nano on the first day. Great timing! It’s a YA version of the Adult contemporary I was writing, about a book club. Though hopefully it’s less depressing.
So far I’m on chapter 3, and I’m enjoying it, though it’s really hard for me to get into the headspace/voice of a teen because I wasn’t a typical teen. In fact, I think I’ve probably said this before, but I’m more of a teen NOW at 30, than I was in my actual teens? If that’s a thing, make me mayor!
So yeah, it’s hard.
I don’t know the real lingo, or what even kinds of thoughts/emotions go through teens heads, because let’s just say when I was a teen all I cared about was tv, cinema and just getting by. Boys weren’t even a thing (still aren’t…), make up wasn’t even on my mind, and school was a thing that I wanted out of the way ASAP. I understand about bullying and such, since that happened to me, but beyond that… yeah. So instead of going off PERSONAL experiences this time, I’m just making shit up and well, THAT I can do. 😀
I was at 3300 words, but after I cut out a bit because it didn’t fit just yet (I didn’t delete, I just put it to one side) I’m now at 3498 words because I wrote a load to replace it. Weird. I thought it’d be less. I’m trying to kill off the inner-editor I have telling me to write properly. I’m TRYING to write write write and not worry about if it’s shit. Seriously, do you have ANY IDEA HOW DIFFICULT THAT IS? Sigh.
If I manage to do updates more often, perhaps it’ll make me write more? A GIRL CAN DREAM! At the same time I’m also editing my magic story, so that’s still going strong. I did lose quite a lot of words, however, in one of the edits. *CRIES*. But I’m still at 50k. *WINNING!* haha.
See you all next week with another update. WISH ME LUCK! WOOOOOT!
If you’re taking part in Camp Nano this month, let me know. 🙂
