Writing and Cleaning

07 Apr

Durail: “What is your business, mage?” Caden: “You ask me that now?!”

My Camp NaNoWriMo characters are on the move. They just performed a daring escape and are on their way to hop the border to enter the next country. The main character is Caden, an Air Mage, and he’s only truly met a handful of the others, while a couple of characters, like Durail, Caden just glanced at while the group fled from their pursuers. Only when they got a break did Durail think to ask about what Caden was doing with them.

The novel is called “Downfall” (for now, anyway), and is about the clash between two different types of magic and people. One are the mages, like Caden, humans whom learn Air, Fire, or Earth magic as they get older. The others are Spiriters, a people whom are connected with an animal spirit guide since birth. The spirit guides themselves are connected with a main element, although the only point to that seems to be to give them an advantage or disadvantage against mages and their magic. Each element is weak or strong against the other two; therefore, if one has a spirit guide with an affinity to Fire, then he/she will not be as affected by Air Magic.

I’m enjoying the idea of the story and the characters, although I’m not entirely sure where the story will end up. Each character has his or her own goals, despite a few of them getting distracted from said goals. There are definitely a few parts I dislike, such as how quickly Caden came to trust the Spiriters he’s hanging out with, but I’ll deal with those scenes when I edit the book. I only wrote about 400 words of it today, while my daily goal is 834 (considering I’m going for 25k rather than 50K). However, yesterday I got ahead and was only five words off of today’s goal.

That’s right. Five. I was only five words away from having two days’ worth of NaNo word counts, and I didn’t even notice.

It was nice, though. I wrote about 400, still ahead, and got halfway to tomorrow’s word count.

Then Rachel and I cleaned. A lot. Our room is still a mess in some areas, but we had a lot of fun on our little cleaning spree that started due to me trying to find a bug on my then-messy desk, but I digress. Spring is coming, everyone; it’s time to clean!

On that note, I hope everyone else’s writing is going well!

    Fun! My sister and I used to clean our room together, but it was usually prompted by her fastening all our pop-beads together into one long string and laying it down the middle of the carpet saying, “This is my side and that’s yours.” We’re oldsters now, with decades of compassion and tolerance going for us…and about 400 miles. And speaking of 400? I just have 400 words to go for today’s quota. Was tempted to stop till I read this post. Thanks!

      Haha, designating room sides is one way to clean, I suppose. 400 seems to be the magic number today; I hope you reached your quota! 🙂 Thanks for the comment!
