It's Camp Time!

This month I am looking forward to doing some great writing. Okay, okay. I'm looking forward to writing. The greatness will be determined by what it is I actually write about. Apparently, and I didn't know this, June is writing camp month over on the National Novel Writing Site. And since you don't want to hear all the gory details from me, I'll send you over here where you can read all about it yourself.

Now, how did I get suckered into going to writing camp?

Noelle.

You all remember Noelle from when I took a trip down to Georgia and a plethora of other occasions. She's my sister, my friend, my companion. She's a pain in the ass, really. See, she gets awfully competitive. And, I know, in my heart of hearts, her innocent "Are you going to write with me for June?" is actually, "I'm going to kick your ass and finish my fifty thousand words before you, Tyson!" And yes, she does use that type of language. I'm just as appalled as you are.

So, what do I have to do...well, at this moment, come up with a freakin' idea!

And then I have to catch up, because, by my count, I am behind by four days.

I'm counting today as a write off because I feel like someone hit me in the head with a bag full of beans. I don't know if that's ever happened, certainly not to me. And I don't know what it would feel like, but death got in a semi-truck and ran me over. Then reversed.

Well, that's what I'm up to. Are you doing NANOJUNOCAMPO? (I made that up, but basically I'm asking if you will be attending camp with me.)

Sadly, I *still* never beat you. Even with you four days behind. Yet I keep hoping. Sigh.

Good luck with all that. I'm sure once you get an idea of what to write (and feel better) you'll catch up soon. And in the end it's not about how long it takes you to write it. It's really about getting to the end and doing so with a well written story.

No matter what we still like you even without ANOTHER novel under your belt :D

Also camp sounds like fun, so we get to make smores?

I wish... Actually I do have an idea but I have this silly thing where I feel I need to finish the other thingy first..and the other thingy is just so lost. :(

Happy camping. :)
