Nightmare City

30 May

For future reference, don’t read up on the Wendigo myth of North America right after looking at the Norse Eddas. Because holy shit man, that was some freaking terrifying things my brain came up with last night. Real horrowshow stuff. Gah. Creeping horrors and cannibalism and small children. It was like a Stephen King novel, except well researched. I woke up twitching.

On the other hand, my Camp NaNo plot fell into my brain almost entirely in one piece this morning as I was trying to scrub the nightmares out of my head, so it wasn’t all bad.

Yes, I’m doing Camp NaNo this year. 50,000 words in 30 days; only this time, it’s summer! My aim this year is to do a complete story, not just hit the wordcount goal. Big talk, I know. I figure it’s about time for me to write a self-contained novel this year. We’ll see how this goes.
