I promised to update y’all on my WIP so here goes. 😉
Currently I’m working on my historical fiction novel Eagledare for Camp NaNoWriMo.
The synopsis for it on my WIP page is so old and inaccurate and lame… So don’t be turned off by that. 😛
Basically, Eagledare is a story about a girl in London during World War Two who… has problems. lol How do I encompass a huge thing with deep themes, a new previously not in the history books world (🤐), a fun and hard and patriotic 1940s atmosphere, and a whole cast of messed up characters.
Make any sense? 😂😉 If you want to know more about this novel-in-the-works, just stalk the posts on here or stick around for a while as I talk about it more and more.
Here are some sketches I did, the last few days, of a few of the characters:
I got pretty behind on my teensy Camp goal, but this past week Paul has been challenging me to get up early with him to sprint.
The early schedule has been real tough to keep up but amazing for my word count!!!
Also we got our writer siblings together and did multiple sprints with them, pooling money for the best healthyish snacks EVER!
I reached my Camp word goal Thursday night! Wahoo!!! And thankfully, didn’t get stuck and stop writing!!
Then yesterday we had the huge privilege of having a write-in with a writer we met at the AFHE Convention!!! I didn’t get a whole lot of words written, but it was a blast and I hope we do it again soon!
Um, and guys… EAGLEDARE IS CURRENTLY 62K WORDS!!! *all the excited cheering* So that’s my writing news. 😁
See that top page with all the scrawling and crossed out notes? Yeah. *collapses into puddle of tears* I would love your prayers as I write this really difficult low point!!
What’s been up with you? I’d love to hear! 🙂 ~A
