LIFE: Camp Update: Week 4

It’s official! With two days to spare, I’ve reached my goal and completed Camp NaNoWriMo! Which means I can finally relax and do something other than writing…like editing. Maybe I’ll draw some more pictures just to get my mind on some other task.

Speaking of drawings, congratulations to the final winner of my mini-quizzes! Dee from Facebook correctly guessed Gabriel as the final character I wrote about this month! Below is the drawing she requested. She wanted me to draw her daughter graduating from college.



LIFE: Camp Update: Week 3

Three weeks of Camp are over, and I’m still right on schedule. It’s been tough, mainly because I’ve been wanting to edit more so than write new content but I’ve been managing. I definitely had a few days where I just didn’t write at all, but I would push myself and catch up. Less than a week left to crank out what’s left!

In the meantime, let’s have one more contest! Here are your clues:

  1. This character takes their job very seriously.
  2. This character is best friends with an “Art of Falling” protagonist’s mentor.
  3. This character has bad luck around children.

Leave a comment below, and whoever guesses correctly first will win a custom sketch!

Last weeks winner was a Facebook user by the name of Edd! Here’s his winning sketch for guessing Etoile correctly! He simply requested that I draw his favorite characters, who happens to be the greed demon.


LIFE: Camp Update: Week 2

We’re two weeks into Camp NaNoWriMo and so far every goal has been met! I’m just finishing up the second short story, and it’s time for another mini-quiz! Can you guess who I’m writing about with only three clues, and win a custom sketch?

1) This character is in a position of power.
2) This character’s greatest desire in life is peace and quiet.
3) This character is a brilliant inventor who planted their ideas into humans over several centuries.

Now, last weeks winner was Nancy! She commented over on the post at Facebook and correctly guessed Viraine! Her art request was her and her boyfriend. Check out the sketch below!


LIFE: Camp Update: Week 1

For Camp NaNoWriMo, I’m having a strong start! Only one week in and I’m already over 10,000 words! Now, it’s not necessarily easy. I’m definitely struggling, because my brain is still in editor mode. I want to work on the sequel, not write a collection of short stories; but if I don’t do something creative, I’ll lose my mind.

The first short story is growing to be bigger than I expected (it’s already almost 20 pages long) but that’s okay. This character deserve it after what happened in The Art of Falling…

So, let’s play a fun game! Can you guess who I’m writing about with a few clues?

  • This character’s story focuses on their romantic relationship with another character from “The Art of Falling.”
  • They don’t live on Earth, but often travel there.
  • They are a fan of the color orange.

LIFE: Camp NaNoWriMo 2016!

I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this April, with the goal of writing 30,000 words by the end of the month!

NaNoWriMo (short for National Novel Writing Month) happens every year in November. However, Camp NaNoWriMo is a great alternative for those who wish they could participate in NaNoWriMo but don’t have time in November to commit. It typically takes place in the spring and summer, anytime between April and August, and the goals are not as strict. Writer’s can choose their word count as well, making it convenient for those who still have a busy schedule.

The entire first draft of “The Art of Falling” was written in June and August of Camp NaNoWriMo 2012, and the first half of the sequel was written during July Camp NaNoWriMo 2015.

This year, I’m going to be tackling the challenge once more! Instead of chugging out another novel, I’m going to take a more laid back approach and do a collection of short stories based around minor characters in “The Age of Mythos!” I’m also lowering my personal goal from 50,000 words to 30,000.

I’ll be focusing on writing all through April, so blog posts will be updates with the challenge. Wish me luck!
