I signed up for my second Camp Nano. I did NanoWriMo last year in November and wrote most of my novel, ARGENT GLASS, during that time, finishing the first very rough draft by Christmas. I started editing in January and continued on through my first Camp Nano, tweaking my story and fixing major plot holes. In this month's Camp, I have committed to 30,000 words. My goal is to work on my blogging and build followers. So, I have no idea what I will be blogging, with the exception of my first post.
For my first post, I picked one of my writing prompts and just started writing: "Show me your hands."
So many things come to mind when I read this prompt... catching my three year old after he finished eating a whole bag of potato chips, being caught stealing gum from the local party store growing up, and more recently, meeting a palm reader. The story that had the biggest pull was meeting the palm reader. I took a moment to think about what she told me and then started typing, letting the words come as they would. My next post is the roughed-out unedited text. Maybe I will use it later is a short story or as a scene for a longer novel. We'll just have to see what happens next!
