Is It that Time Already?


My picture from our trip to Cleveland. My heroine, Susan, lives in the apartment above these stores in Little Italy.

So, we’re less than a week away from the start of Camp NaNoWriMo, and everything is sneaking up on me. I’m still not entirely sure what exactly I’ll be doing. I’ll definitely put some time in on the contemporary novel I started for J’s birthday, The Sorrow Thereof, and I might get back to the latest Oleg Omdahl. Whether or not there is a fanfic component of this Camp will probably depend on whether or not a friend I’ve decided to co-write a story with wants to get started on it in July. (Co-writing with someone other than J should be an interesting experience! I’ll report back.)

But while I’m here, it just dawned on me that I haven’t really said anything about The Sorrow Thereof. Perhaps I should quickly. It focuses on a single character, Susan, trying to put her life back together after her divorce from the husband she loves quite a lot, Randel. The story focuses on her attempt to become a better person and live with the guilt of her past, and just maybe, find a little happiness at the end of the day. I don’t know. Crappy elevator pitch, but it’s what I’ve got for now. On the bright side, I should be able to start adding more great details to her life. As I mentioned about a month back, part of the story takes place in Cleveland, but the rest of it is set in Chapel Hill. Our dear friend who currently lives in Chapel Hill is going to be visiting soon, and I can’t wait to harass her endlessly with questions.

And other than that, I’m just trying to figure out where my weekend went. And finish up Gone with the Wind, which we really might have to write a goodly amount about at some point. At any rate, we will pop in when we can with Camp updates.
