You know, when I attended the NaNoWrimo write-ins last year, I found out I could write quite a lot of words in 20 minutes if the words are just flowing. And they have been flowing. The story is just so alive in my head it’s amazing.
Camp NaNo Update
My word counts have been as follows:
Day 1: 0
Day 2: 3590
Day 3: 535
Day 4: 4612
Day 5: 189 (power outage)
Day 6: 5476
Today: Who knows!?
My goal was to get to 15000 this Saturday, but I’m now thinking of setting my word count higher and aiming for 25000 this weekend. That would be half a “novel” in a week. Imagine how many books I could write in a year! :O
I wasn’t going to announce this Patreon thing for quite a long while, perhaps beginning of 2017, but Carin Marais my dear friend (with the evil laugh) decided to speed that process up with my first official pledge. I’m working on a short-story (1000 – 3000 words) with her request: The Last Robot on Earth.
I’ve had a few ideas already, but I need something different from the Dystopian, Sci-Fi kind theme that seems to be overdone. At the moment, I only have $1 pledges which qualify for:
Pledge $1 or more per Per story
- A Patreon-only short story (between 1000 and 3000 words) of your making. You tell me what you want and I will give it to you
- Insight into the making of the story, including sources, first drafts, revisions etc.
If you would like to pledge and get your own Patreon-only short story (I will not publish or sell it anywhere – unless you want me to or something.), then please feel free to do so:
