I won! :D 50,190 words at 18:30, Nov 29th. First time I finished early^^
And I’m in the process of wrapping up a novel, too. I think this warrants a little celebration. In the form of a new
toy video card. Actually, I more or less need a new one, anyway. This one is starting to complain loudly whenever I turn on the computer. Literally; the coil whine is getting super annoying -_-
Anyways, happy first of December, whether you finished NaNo or not, won or just tried, or if you don’t know what I’m talking about^^
That moment when you look for ideas in an old notebook and find a plot/blurb about someone spying on people for the NSA, then going rogue and exposing them… Jesus, that’s a whole new level of unsettling, even for me o_O
Okay, my plot has genetically altered spec ops people, a huge government conspiracy and lots of shooting and random assassinations, but still. Creepy.
Hm. I think that’s what later turned into a Camp NaNo novel… *checks* Yup, it’s the first incarnation, all right. Can I somehow use this for marketing purposes? “Psychic reveals shocking secrets years before the world learns of them! Read now the thrilling sequel to a ‘novel’ that might turn out to be much more than just a story!”
Seems like a sound strategy to me…
