Happy spring! It kind of felt like it was never going to come/ is never going to come, but we have some sunshine so that counts in my book. There was ice on my windshield a couple days ago, but in Washington as soon as we get sunshine we start going outside and celebrating it. So it's here! I'm ready for it this year.
Also, happy Camp Nanowrimo! One of my favorite times of year! I have big plans for this one, and I'm keeping busy, and I hope to have lots to share with you! Unfortunately, one of my plans is NOT starting a new story. I don't know what it is about Nanowrimo, but as soon as I start to focus on one story, I get a new great story idea and want to jump ship and work on it immediately. I got a great one yesterday. Why, brain.
Here is what's going on this month:
The first three chapters of Always Three, my paranormal adventure story, are available to red on Wattpad now, and this story is my priority this month for Nanowrimo. I'm ambitiously hoping to finish it, since it's a pretty fast-paced story, and the next two chapters are going to be posted to read this month. I'm aiming for a chapter every two weeks right now, which may get adjusted in the future as I get towards the end, which means there will be a chapter up on April 9th and 23rd. I'm about to jump into the action, so check it out here!
There are now two short stories available to read up on Patreon, "Drowning Lessons" and "Siren Songs"! I'm very proud of them and I'm having a ton of fun writing flash fiction- short stories that are less than a thousand words, so it's a lot of story packed into a quick read- and I have another one coming out tomorrow. Patrons who pledge $3 a month or more can read them here, if you're not a patron yet go check it out! ;)
I edited another chapter, which puts the draft at about ten percent completion now! I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but this is a lot of story, and I'm aiming for this to be completed in around three drafts. Three... freaking LONG drafts. But three drafts, hopefully! This is my second priority after Always Three. Some chapters need to be entirely rewritten from the first draft, which would work well with Nanowrimo.
As you might have guessed by now, this is what the month is centered around. I'm going to be sharing my progress on my Instagram (here) and on my Nanowrimo profile, which you can find here! Come say hello if you're participating too, I always want more writing buddies.
That's all for now! I'll see you at the end of the month, hopefully with some nice finished work to share! :)
