Hello, I’m alive! Semester’s just ended and exams are staring at me. I SURVIVED MY FIRST SEMESTER OF UNIVERSITY. Excuse the all-caps, I’ve been spending too much time on Tumblr of late.
Anyway, in other news I’m going to attempt Camp NaNoWriMo. There are two of these each year, one in June and the other in August. I’m going to give the June one a shot. I’ll consider my August prospects closer to the date. Camp NaNoWriMo is basically NaNoWriMo without as much of the fancy website stuff. The novel I’m hoping to write is a werewolf novel, a bit cliché, but that’s not going to stop me. What’s more likely to stop me is lack of preparation this time around, since I wasn’t even sure I was going to participate until about an hour ago. Oops. In any case, I’ll try to be a bit more active on here while this is going on.
I also just submitted last year’s NaNovel to the Hot Key Books Young Writers Prize over in England. I’m probably not going to place because the novel isn’t exactly ready, but I don’t lose anything by entering. I’ll have plenty of time to clean up the novel if I do end up graduating to the next phase of the contest, so my hopes aren’t at rock bottom.
Enough of my hyperactive ramble (I’ve been drinking more caffeinated beverages than I used to). How are you guys?
