I went and signed up for Camp Nanowrimo a while ago (Just like Nanowrimo, but in April, and with a Summer Camp theme). A friend who is just getting into writing wanted someone to write with, and I said sure. So I’m taking a break from the Egypt Novel to write 7 or 8 short stories. Some will come here to the blog, and some will get polished to within an inch of their lives and sent into the scary world of submission for publication.
I’m fairly excited about several of my stories, and I started writing right at midnight. My first story is tentatively called “Sunshine on a Cloudy Day” and is a story about a lesbian Selkie. It’s inspired by the artwork submitted during Neil Gaiman’s “Calendar of Tales” project. I’m having fun writing it so far, especially as it’s my first foray back into First Person POV in quite some time.
Anyway, to anyone else joining the Nano-family this month, Happy Writing. Feel free to stop by and compare stories or wordcount goals.
