This post is also written on Legends Undying, my Sunday guest posting site, but for those of you that follow me here please enjoy.
Many of you will know on Monday 1st April Campnano starts, this a variation of Nanowrimo, the November writing project, trying to write a 50000 word novel in a month. However there are differences to Campnano. One has an option of getting allocated a cabin with 5 other writers and then make friends and do little get together’s like camp fire sing along. Or if you know others that are doing it then you can invite these to be in the same cabin, and then hopefully build your own camp mates. Another option is to opt out of any of this and be a loner and do it on your own. I have been lucky enough to know a couple and have been given our own cabin with a few unknown.
One of the main differences with this is that we can nominate our own word count, I know of some that has nominated a lowly number of 15000 words. Because it is a relaxed project I have nominated 35000 words and fully intend to do more. But my main goal is to complete. There are events during the month, one is Marathon day on the 14th. Will report more nearer the time.
My story is about my family and it’s squabbles, but I am going to try and transfer all these events back into medieval times, with a mixture of magic and creatures of the mind. But all events were modern day events. King and Queen and the fighting for power among the children, knowing the death of the King is near. At the moment I have titled it ‘Birth of a Prince’ but may change.
All that remains is watch this space and read my weekly update.. Oh yes, Wish me luck..
