A Letter from Camp

Hi! Can't believe it's the last week of Camp NaNoWriMo! Friday I reached my 50K mark in my new novel, "Speaking of Witch . . ." and I'm pressing ahead, searching desperately for a PLOT!Have to say I'm having a fun time with this one. After all, it's summer camp. I remember one summer I decided to read everything Jane Austen ever wrote - now that was a slow slog (but I recovered). And a few summers ago I set myself the task of writing 200 haiku poems. Another year the goal was everything Dickens. Now THAT was a long season.Check out this year's progress at CampNaNoWriMo!

For some reason the National Novel Writing Month people decided that one novel per year isn't enough for me to write. So for the first time ever they are challenging the world to write a 50K word novel in the month of July! And since I can't pass up the opportunity to write a novel in one month, I'm pounding away on my new novel "Speaking of Witch . . ." (spelling intentional) - Check Camp NaNoWriMo to track my progress and read an excerpt of the novel. Of course it involves the ghost of Lord Byron and a Wiccan priestess who is determined to expose his lordship as a geeky fraud who used a body double to do all of his swashbuckling and womanizing for him. Obviously pretty heavy reading. :)

So if you don't hear a whole lot from me this month . . .
