Camp NaNoWriMo

So, you know all those weird blog posts from October/November of last year about me thinking I can write a novel in a month? Well, the organization that created nanowrimo (national novel writing month) has just unveiled a new program: CAMP NaNoWriMo! Basically, it's nanowrimo, but in the summer. So, starting tomorrow, I'm again going to try to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. And I'm VERY excited!

The thing is, my life has been pretty boring this summer. Summer school, tutoring, and lots of time on the internet and reading Harry Potter. This will give me a fun project to work on, and I've already got an idea for a plot!

Since I'm pretty sure all my readers are LDS, I can just say this: it's based on the book of Ether, during all those wars when brothers were killing brothers, sons capturing and imprisoning fathers, and just lots of great story-inspiring events are happening. My story will include murder, war, secret societies (aka combinations), revenge, politics, and lots of other juicy stuff. Like I said, I'm very excited.

I'll be sure to keep you guys posted on my progress (even though most of you probably get sick of those posts. Too bad!), and at the end of the month maybe I'll even give you an excerpt to read! Maybe. If I'm feeling nice. :-)

Thanks for reading!

I'm impressed with your ability to write, and come up with ideas to write about. I'm struggling to come up with a topic for my persuasive writing class and the paper only has to be 4 pages. Not even close to 50,000 words.
