I’ve got Camp NaNoWriMo on the brain lately, so I’ve decided to do something fun today to share the project I’ll be working on starting next month.
As you may recall, I participated in NaNoWriMo for the first time in November 2017 with a fantasy project I called “Quest,” mostly because it was inspired by other fantasy quest narratives I enjoy, like The Legend of Zelda series. Even though I completed that 50,000 word draft (and learned a lot from it), I’ve since decided to scrap it and start again from the beginning. Not the beginning beginning – I’ll be keeping the same world, characters, and much of the same ideas, but I’m reworking the plot and making it a better story.
One of my less-explicitly-stated goals for 2019 is to complete a draft of what I hope will be the first book in a series. Since November will probably be a crazy time for me – it’ll be my senior year, after all – I plan to use Camp NaNoWriMo in April and July as my intense writing sessions, but also allow myself to write in between.
All that to say, I recently rediscovered an older blog post of mine called “The Six Question Character Challenge,” where I shared a bit about the three main characters of my “Summertime” project. Since Camp NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, I thought I’d do it again with the three main characters from Quest! I’ve written posts about them in the past, so I’ll link those as well in the post.
