Search and Rescue: Update CampNaNo 2

So, second week of Camp NaNo is here. I’ve managed to write at least a bit every day; I haven’t been writing the daily word count goal, unfortunately, but I’m still making progress.

Chp. 9 is being quite difficult, so I’m doing some skipping around with it, and planning to go back to fill in the gaps later. I’ve also done some planning in terms of how I want the rest of the story to go, which might be part of why Chp. 9 is so difficult – it’s a pause of sorts in the action, and my PlotBunnies want to get to the rest of the stuff! (Plus, figuring out what to do about the serious second degree burns covering the protagonist’s entire back, as well as the back of his arms and legs, when he can’t use the drug that helps speed up the healing of soft tissue damage because of allergies, has also been difficult.)

I’m hoping that by skipping through the parts of the chapter that the Plot Bunnies don’t want to deal with, I’ll be able to start writing more each day, but this month hasn’t been off to the greatest start in the first place, so….

Well, here’s hoping that the next week goes well on the writing front and on the not hurting myself any more front! (Spending the eclipse on the ground because I tripped, because my bad ankle twisted, trying to move over to a rock so that I could stand up, was not fun. Got some nice shadow pictures, but still.)

Search and Rescue: Update CampNaNo 1

So, you may remember the last post I put up, Real Life: 1; S&R: 0, wherein I mentioned the whole “Bad Luck in Health” issue, and declared that quite likely, I would be doing the rewrite for CampNaNoWriMo April?

Well, here we are, and yes, I have actually started the rewrite!

I’ve set my CampNaNo goal as 35,000 words, since the remaining chapters number 6 out of a total of 14.

I’ve gotten off to a bit of a slow start, but I am bound and determined to finish it this month!

(Now I’ve just got to get back on the HaliWrimo discord….)

So, every year I do NaNoWriMo, I maintain a progress report page on my website. (Once I really get this site going, I’ll have a copy on here as well.) Feel free to check it out (and cheer me on)!

NaNoWriMo 2015: Accidental Romance

So, it’s November. And we all know what November means, right?

Yep, it’s NaNoWriMo time again! Yay!

This year, I’m doing something… semi-different, let’s say. Not as different as last year (when I did a fanfic), but not with quite the same sort of tone as my other stories.

Heh. Its working title is Accidental Romance for a reason.

Science-fiction (because last year, fanfic or no, was a fantasy, and my Bunnies tend to like switching them out), and inspired by Crossover Queen’s Count Taka and the Vampire Brides. Not nearly the same – Count Taka is very definitely supernatural fantasy – but definitely inspired by.

Twenty years ago, the Hre’Eaki were discovered by the Interstellar Confederacy. Another alien race with the technological advances to travel FTL, but no interest in doing so.

Hideki Akayagi is a graduate student at Heian University on Nara, doing his Masters in Folklore. Sru’Kivir is the third and youngest child of the leader of the Sru Clan. When Hideki is chosen as one of the students for the Hre’Eaki Cultural Exchange Program, they meet.

And then the real fun begins.

Now, where did I leave those files on Earth animals that change sex….
