Camp NaNoWriMo: July 2019

I have spent so many years debating what story to tell and proceeding to try to tell the story only to start again. And again. And again. Usually, it’s a fantasy story. I just can’t seem to find the right character to carry the narrative in its entirety. For a while, I did take a little break from writing fantasy and focus on this band story I started years ago and never went back to. However, as I was plotting, I struggled to make the plot captivating enough and have a strong story arc.

Which is why I have now combined the two ideas.

In the past, I’d incorporated the band into my fantasy stories as secondary characters. However, I always found they wanted to tell the story and become primary characters. Or at least, one particular character did. So, I finally let him lead the story and drag along the other three. He has a very distinctive personality and it’s great for helping carry a narrative.

This particular story is bringing four band members into a fantasy setting. I’m using ideas I’ve used in other stories in this story, including an idea from a literal dream I had. Hopefully, with this particular combination, I’ll be able to write to the end of a first draft.

Here’s to Camp NaNoWriMo and whatever else it brings!
