Winning

So. My novel. As of now. 

Is 50,139 words long.

Yes, I just won my second month of novel writing, though the book itself isn’t finished just yet. I plan on using the next six days and at least 12K more words to get there. 

Nevertheless, I am feeling very proud of myself and my book. 

Hell yeah. I just won Camp NaNoWriMo six days early.

Okay. It’s three hours in and I think I can really do a better job if I just go to sleep and work on it some more tomorrow. 

But I am super excited. This book’s started off great, and I can’t wait to get to the juicy parts. All the boring history and stuff is done, now I’ll get some ACTION!

Camp NaNoWriMo

Yes, I’m doing it. Why? Because honestly, there have been many times this year that I’ve just been sitting there longing for November to come again. It was amazing last time, and I hope it will be just as amazing in July.

And yes, this means I’ll be postponing any work on the story I’ve been posting here at least until the end of the month. I’m sorry. ><;

Anyway. If you want to read the novel I wrote last November called Higher Education, a link is here:

Description (that always ends up being way too long ><): By many people’s definition, the Apocalypse happened. Countries were destroyed or cut themselves off from the rest of the world. Out of the ashes of the United States of America, however, rises a new country, unnamed, powerful, and extremely wary of the outside world. 

Annie is sick of this protected, knowledgeable, and oppressive world, however, and is determined to find an escape. Outside the world is different than anyone has believed it to be in centuries, and it’s wonderful…but if she knows how to get out and into the country, its security is threatened, and any threat to security must be exterminated…

If anyone’s interested, the novel I’ll start on Friday will be called Heat Seekers. It’s about a woman named Helena who’s an anti-vampire activist, but when her life is saved by a vampire and his wife, she starts to change her opinions. As a thank you, she agrees to bear the couple’s child, because vampires have to use human surrogates if they want to have one. This causes trouble not only with the group Helena practically lead against the vampire race, but with the powerful gang whom she was saved from.

I’ll probably post it on dA after I finish posting Higher Education, or here after I finish Jack and Win’s story. Whichever happens first.

Wish me luck~
