Introducing: My Camp NaNo Project

      Long time no see, am I right? To see my excuse, just glance up at the title. That’s right. Camp NaNo’s arrived, and we’re ten days into it. (I was supposed to get this post on March 29th, actually, but…)

        Can you believe it? It seems like only last week I was still trying to remember my MC’s last name. Actually, it WAS last week. I don’t see the point of remembering their last names unless it’s really so important to the plot…which it is…but beside the point.

      Anyways, if you don’t know what Camp NaNoWriMo is, here’s a crash course: You set a goal of a number of words to write or minutes to spend towards your project. It starts on April 1st, and ends  April 30th. By the end of the month, if you’ve completed your goal, you win! You’re also in cabins – a community with like-minded writers. Altogether, it’s stressful, dreadful, and heinous. I’m just kidding it’s actually pretty fun.

UNTITLED

(I’m really terrible at novel titles, and I haven’t managed to come up with one yet)

Synopsis: In a world where everybody receives magical abilities on their 14th birthday, Isla is the odd one out. When she undergoes a machine that supposedly will give her the powers she craves, she finds that it backfires. Badly. Being joined by her two friends, Isla begins a journey to find the maker of the machine and bring herself back to normal.

Setting:

         THE WORLDBUILDING WAS SO MUCH FUN. But basically, Ikrasia is the world that they’re in, and Westerlight, Eastdell, and Setryn are the three main continents. Citlali is a country on Eastdell, which is where Isla lives. Her small town of Woodwyn is on the right side of the river you see in Citlali next to the mountains, among some very nice hills. I like hills.

            Well, that’s my Camp NaNoWriMo project for you! Who’s your favorite character so far? Camp NaNo, as stressful as it can be, is really honestly quite fun though. Are any you doing it? If so, do tell me all about it – I’d love to hear. 😀

  1. Your characters all sound very cool! I really like your main character, and the synopsis sounds AMAZING.

    At first I was amazed by how stereotypical your INFP character is. But then I saw that she was the antagonist… and that’s amazing. Amazing. I have never heard of an INFP villain, except the phantom in The Phantom of the Operah.

    Solandis Ilian Lennox is so prettyyy! 🙂

    1. Haha, I was worried that she would be kind of stereotypical and cliché as well, so I added that little twist. And thank you so much! I read your Camp NaNo post as well, and I find the concept incredible. 😀

    1. asdfghjkl; that’s so sweet, wow. The same to you, as well, and don’t worry – I’m 100% going to put the Wordsmiths in the dedication + acknowledgements. Especially you, my crazy little birdie.

    1. See, that is why the lack of one L and the E instead of the U is so important. XD Basically, he can make creatures out of elemental objects. Think…Elsa and that snow monster she made.
