It's day 1 of Camp NaNoWriMo! I'm writing Book 3 of Daughter of the Wildings. A new feature of this Camp (as opposed to previous NaNoWriMo events) is that you can set your own word count goal. I'm going for 30,000, because it's doable in a month where I'm also in heavy-duty revisions (on Chosen of Azara), and because so far the drafts in this series haven't been very long. They'll probably get longer once I go back and fill them out; I tend to "write short," meaning that I summarize and skim over a lot of things in the first draft that need to be filled out in more detail in revisions.
Day 1 Count: 1509 words; 1509/30,000
Jury duty early tomorrow morning. I'm not counting on being able to get any writing done tomorrow, unless they let me go early. What I will do is print out the short-shorts I wrote in March and some of my revision-planning worksheets and get to work on those while I'm hanging out in the jury waiting room.
In other news, a group I'm involved in on Goodreads, Paranormal, Fantasy, Dystopia, and Romance Writers and Reviewers, has launched a new website: ultimatefantasybooks.com. If you enjoy fantasy, science fiction, paranormal, urban fantasy, and/or romance and you're looking for something new to read, come check out the site!
And I want to highlight the PFDRWR featured author of the week, Kristen DaRay. Congratulations, Kristen!
