I’m at a point in my story where I am giving Sidewinder, my male MC, a hard time. I’m enjoying every moment on it.
Of course, there’s more to come in terms of conflict, but I like taking a light-hearted approach to putting my characters through hell.
Not to mention, all of these points will come up later in the story. They are defining Sidewinder’s character and giving Kait some moments to shine.
Never forget that your major characters should grow in some way. It doesn’t have to be positive growth, but by the end of the story, there should be some significant contrast between the characters.
Before I sign off to go watch Game 1 of the NBA Finals, I want to remind people doing Camp NaNoWriMo that in the end, you have to have fun doing it. It’s a month of writing and that’s it. Try to hit the goal, but don’t take it too seriously.
P.S I know I haven’t talked about bacon sundaes. So I’ll post something else: a bacon martini!

(eerie song by the way. Imagine walking through an abandoned, foggy mine).
So for Camp NaNoWriMo, I think I’m going to do this one cold. No outline.
I’ll just have a little cheat sheet with character names, important places, and other details. I’ll let the plot write itself.
Who knows what will happen?
If you haven’t signed up yet, make sure to do so if you want to start in June (which is this Friday!)
I’ll try to post daily, but I’m not making any promises.

It’s a sunny day outside, it’s the weekend and Spongebob Squarepants is on. Life is good.
I then get a message from some comrades.
A zombie has been spotted in a town a fair distance away. It catches humans who stray from their groups and infects them. The town must be secure.
I realize what I must do. I must aid my comrades.
I must arm myself:
A primary weapon and a secondary weapon.
My primary weapon is the Rayven CS-18. It’s a semi-automatic blaster with a big clip. Its range is pretty good so I can have some room between myself and brain-hungry zombies. So long as the batteries keep running, this blaster keeps firing!
In the event of empty clips, I carry a Maverick REV-6. A reliable sidearm, it has decent range and can hold six darts.
It’s also important to carry supplies!
Lightweight and useful!
I carry a state-of-the-art drawstring bag with extra ammo and emergency supplies (bottle of Gatorade, for example). Also, I stock rolled-up socks, in case I need an emergency long range weapon.
With missions like collecting keys, passcodes to antidotes, etc, teamwork is especially important. We must stay focused!
Wish me luck!
