OMG! I am totally that camper.
The one who complains that her bunkmates suck and asks to be moved to a different cabin.
Yep, I did.
They were really quiet. So very quiet.
Like, I'd been in the cabin for a week and no one had said anything.
I'm sorry, but I can't stand quiet cabins.
So I asked to be moved. And, because it's Camp Nano and they're awesome, they obliged.
And now I'm in a new cabin.
They all have similar writing goals (remember, mine is 25K), and we appear to be a diverse group of people. Some of the story synopses even sound like books I'd enjoy reading (not so big on Fantasy when reading, but they made it sound enjoyable and interesting).
But they're quiet too.
Now, I don't know how long the rest of them have been together. I just know that I just got assigned. So I decided to strike up a conversation and get us started.
We'll see how that goes.
In the meantime, I'm really excited about my project for Camp Nano! Except that I'm going out of town for the 4th of July, and I won't be within internet - or electricity - range at all.
(We're going camping, in case you couldn't figure it out.)
Maybe I'll buy some lined notebooks and take them with me. After all, that is how The Sector got its start: camping Labor Day weekend forever ago. I wrote it by the light of the moon, the stars, and my tiny little battery-powered lantern that attracted the giantest moths you've ever seen. No lie.
And look how that turned out!
In the meantime, I'm working on something different. It's definitely going to be more sci-fi-y than The Sector was. And I'm excited about that. I even have a sequel novella planned (but mostly because part of it is going to be incorporated into part of what I'm working on. Confused? Yeah, me too!).
I'll try and blog before I go. If not, watch for my farewell to tech post on the Facebook page, and I'll see you all next week!
Thanks for reading! (and commenting! *hint hint*)
