April 1st started with me realizing one very important thing – I have a main plot but really no direction I want my novel to go in. I know it is an Urban Fantasy retelling of Aladdin and The Lion King. Beyond that? Nada.
My goal for Camp NaNoWriMo is 50,000 words in 30 days. Here we are at the end of Week 1. My total word count should be 10,000 words on Day 6 (that’s today). My actual word count leaves a bit more to be desired. 1,513 words written so far. Yikes!
Does this mean I’m giving up? Heck no! The very first round of Camp NaNoWriMo that I did back in . . . June 2012 didn’t get started until around this time because that was when I first found out about Camp NaNo. I started a week late and still finished a few days early! So there is still hope for me yet.
BUT, if I am going to get the Inspiration Ball rolling again, I’m going to need your help! In the beginning, my main character is just coming into her magic. She’s a fae princess, being raised by two humans who have been acting as her guards her entire life. At the beginning of the story, strange things start happening when they’re on vacation, things that lead up to her magic coming back.
What kind of strange things are happening to (or around) my main character?
That’s where I need your help 🙂 Let me know what strange things you think should be happening in the comments below! Let’s get the Inspiration Ball rolling again 🙂
