Camp Nano – Days 7 and 8…and 9!
Sunday was my day of rest! I didn’t open my manuscript, although I was working on my main character in my thoughts! Having got over my ‘I’ve got a dull character’ wobbly I got back to the rewrite yesterday. I’ve now got to the stage where I’m making plot changes and have added a new scene of 1500 words. Adding a scene feels a lot more like a rewrite than a few edits; as I said earlier the second half is where most of the work is needed. As I write, I’m realise that it’s not necessarily my character’s personality that is awry, it’s that she’s not always leading the action, so I think that when I am on rewrite #2 I will change some of the ‘ideas’ and ‘suggestions’ made by other people to be the fab ideas of my main character!
I’m not going to be able to spend as much time this week on the novel because my daughter is starring in her last school musical. We seem to have been roped into making props and were up last night making a four foot rocket to be strapped onto someone’s back. I’ve already done three trips to the school this morning – ferrying various props in. All the joys of parenthood. I’m sure that when I watch her I’ll be extremely proud.
Are there any other Camp nano peeps out there? Or those who are planning to do Nanowrimo later in the year?
