As April winds to an end, I find myself in the midst of two things: finishing up my story for Camp Nanowrimo, and preparing Scavengers for release later this week!
Currently I’m at around 18,500 words in “The Madman,” which will be a second Wolf Point prequel novella. I only need to write about 500 words a day to get to my goal of 20K by the April 30th deadline. Along the way some interesting things have happened. I had planned for this installment to be all about Fallon Loupe going mad. I wasn’t sure what part Geo would have in it… and it’s been a much bigger part than I expected!
I took this week off so I can edit and prepare Scavengers. After finishing the first draft last month I needed to take some time away from it before really editing. Now I have the whole week… here we go!
This year Camp Nanowrimo is already making me do great things. I finished the rough draft of Scavengers (YAY! You can even see that it’s moved from my Works in Progress to Novels!) because I needed it to be finished before I started camp.
I had a whole 2 days to spare, and I decided to use them to do a little pre-editing for Scavengers – by that I mean I’m re-reading Hitchhikers and Dreamwalkers. (Usually I leave a newly finished novel to sit for a while before editing). Mostly I was forgetting details like character descriptions and various places, and re-reading was mostly for me to remember the tone and voice of each novel and to be able to record all those things in my master notebook of info. Well, damned if I haven’t found a bunch of types and errors in Hitchhikers alone! I’m talking stuff like Kayla referring to her father as “Uncle Buck” and Daniel forgetting if his mother is Julie or Jenny (it’s Jenny). Ugh. I also described Remy in a totally different way than I remembered, so once I get through Dreamwalkers I’ll match them up and hopefully get all the details straight and upload revised editions. And hopefully I’ll then be able to edit Scavengers and have it out by the new release date, April 30!
For Camp Nanowrimo, I’m writing another prequel. This one is called “The Madman” and picks up where The Beast left off. Naturally, I will have to re-read The Beast at some point to get all those details straight. Because this is a novella, my Camp Nanowrimo word count is only 20,000, and as of Day 1 I’m right on track! I’m excited in that way that comes after finishing a novel, like anything is possible. I’m already trying to plan for what I’ll work on in July. Wolf Point #4? The third prequel novella? Something totally new??
You’d think, after having four giant snowstorms in as many weeks and getting a number of days off from work for that very reason, with nothing to do other than sit in my apartment alone, that I would have done MUCH more writing than I have.
Yesterday cabin fever set in and I had to get out. My couch has become synonymous with marathoning TV shows and watching movies, and not writing. I had some luck after taking advice from another blogger about changing location to break out of writer’s block – took my laptop into the kitchen to sit at the table and write and actually got quite a bit done.
Today I’m with Janina at Barnes & Noble writing. I updated my word count over on the Scavengers page so you can see that I really am trying! It seems like everyone else in the world also has cabin fever and is out today…
