…And that only means one thing in my world!
Writing, and lots of it.
Yup, I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo again.
(I am somewhat of a glutton for punishment methinks)
This year I am revisiting a project that I started in November 2015 during NaNoWriMo.
The word count on that one went fairly well – I managed 26,633 words – until I hit my usual nemesis… the middle of the book!
So I put it aside until the following April and my 4th Camp NaNoWriMo. This time I decided to come at the same story from a different angle…
This time I managed just 21,259 words – my muse departed for a holiday and left me high and dry!
I’ve added a few thousand words to it since – the word count currently stands at 37,867 and I’d really like to get:
a) the story finished.
b) the word count up to a min of 70,000.
That’s assuming that life doesn’t distract me too much and that I can get my current WIP finished.
Talking of which, I’ve got to 66, 907 words and killed off a few characters along the way. I’ve also managed to set the scene for the next book in that world. I also changed the title from “Chamberlain’s Curse” to “The Curse of The Jade Cat”. So I’m pretty happy with it; I just want to get it finished so that it can move onto the next stage!
The first book in that world is “Heir of The Dragon” and I’m in the process of giving it the once over, seeing if I can improve it. It’s been given a sparkly new cover – which I will do a big reveal of once I get closer to the time when I can say that the new book will be published… because that also has a wonderful cover by the same Cover Artist and deserves a big build up!
So now you’re all caught up with the World of the Teigr Princess, I’m signing off until the end of April. Social Media is a huge procrastination station for me, so I need to unplug completely to get things done.
Hopefully when I post next, I’ll have two new books to tell you about!
