July Camp Preparations


Greetings fellow bloggers/readers/writers/peruse-ers,

Can you believe how quickly this year is moving? It was not so long ago that I completed the first part of my Wages of Sin story and won the April Camp NaNo and now here we are again, preparing for the July Camp. Can we slow down just a tad?

July Camp Prep:

Just when I was really getting into my Steampunk novel, I got hit by that massive genre encompassing steampunk; that’s right, Fantasy jumped me faster than Smaug in a gold-filled mountain. But it didn’t end there, oh no. On my down time I’ve also been waltzing through comic books, most notably Marvel comics. I read “Marvels” written by Kurt Busiek and painted by Alex Ross along with a bunch of other fascinating comics in the Marvel universe. All of these kept playing in the back of my mind, along with my own personal art of Nature Vs Man, which, I guess inevitably, led to my Camp NaNo project: Natural Man: A Comic. Here’s the premise that sparked it.

“They say the Galaxy watched over Earth with tears in his eyes.

Man ravaged the natural beauty unique to the single living planet.

Death. Decay. Demise. Darkness. Until a tear fell…

From the Galaxy,

To Earth.”

I still have space in my Cabin if you are interested in being part of Camp NaNo next month. Remember, you can set your own word count goal and can work on anything you want, as long as you get those words down. A cabin is limited to 11 people so send me your username and I’ll add you. If I run out of space, I apologise in advance.

Here is some of my personal artwork for the project. Excuse the blur, my phone camera is useless.

  1. Jumped faster than Smaug in a gold filled mountain. Hahaha. I can’t wait to read what you write. This sounds exciting.

  2. Good luck with your project! 😀 I’m already a part of another cabin and I can’t wait to see what comes our way in July!

  3. Awe, I’ve already started my own cabin, or I would have joined. I’d still love to be NaNo buds? I am egodominustuus on there.

  4. I’ve been wanting to do NaNoWriMo for a while. Just signed up today, hoping I can be in your cabin. 🙂 KellyGriffiths is my user name. I’m in the middle of a mainstream novel, my second attempt. I start writing in summer and then get crazy-busy in the fall. I don’t want to drop my novel again. Hoping the accountability will help, and I love the idea of a smaller community.

  5. I am writing poetry at 10,000 words for Camp NaNoWriMo and celebrating my birthday July 11. I have a cabin called Cabin Enigma. Do you have a cabin yet? Would like to be NaNo writing buddies.
