Journal History

Camp Journal Entry: Final Remarks

There are so very many things that I could say here....

First off,  oh my word what a month it's been!  SCA Coronation the second weekend in,  Week 3 kinda killed me, and lagging muse through Week Four. Despite that, I survived with only one all-nighter (my frist ever as crazy as that is, and without caffiene too)  

Secondly, I really am crazy, aren't I? One-hundred thousand words in a month with minimal amounts of caffiene (without horribly aggravating my wrists at that!). I somehow managed to connect three novel length (plus one RPG campaign) pieces into one cohesive setting. That's terrifying, actually. Somebody should stop me before things get worse.

Thirdly, I forgot what I was going to put here, so I'll say this: To all of my so very dear characters.... thank you. You are some of the most well behaved characters I've worked with in a long time, and for such an extensive amount of story time. It's been an awesome adventure, and please do enjoy your vacation on the shelf. I don't know how long it's going to be, but you deserve it for being so fantastic.

Fourthly... what next?
I start editing. Not this story, because I need a break from it, but I'll likely start alternating between Passage of RIghts (80k doesn't seem so daunting now, oddly enough) and The Centre Pts 1-2 until I get my system cleaned out and refreshed. I do believe that PoR will be the next book I'll actually have a book-version of. (Aug 31 deadline for the hardcover proof copy).

I'd also like to write another campaign, but haven't entirely decided which setting to play in yet. Shapeshifting dragons? Questionable medicine? Blood Oaths? Any suggestions?

I can also pick up calligraphy and playing my violin again, as well as dismantle my blanket tent, now that I'm not attempting to murder my hands. Oh, and my spelling should improve. Thanks for putting up with that! (Or should I say, tahanks for ptutting up wtih taht!)

It's been an amazing month at Camp, and while I'm sad to leave, I'm also looking forward to sleeping in my own bed, and picking up so many of the other projects that I've left on hold. Farewell, Camp NaNo, I'll see you in 91 days!

  • Mood: Bemused
  • Listening to: the silence of my keyboard
  • Reading: NaNo stats
  • Watching: the stack of unfinished projects grow
  • Playing: in insanity
  • Eating: trail mix
  • Drinking: in old stories

Mmm, shame I vanished from deviantART for so long. You must have terribly missed me. D=

Doesn't look like I'm coming back soon, though. Stuff going on here. D:
