Camp NaNo July 2017 Winner

camp-winner-page-banner

I validated my Camp NaNo project about a week ago, having finally reached 50k on it that morning. It always feels like a great accomplishment to reach that word count goal, even if your project ended up being more like various scenes from old ideas and fanfiction that no one else will ever see.

Still, it’s always great practice and a fun way for me to relax. That kind of writing is more on par for me nowadays, with me just having fun rather than working on a longer novel. I still have novel ideas and would love to write them one day, perhaps enough so they’re publishable, but for now I’m good with just dabbling with writing. I would love to focus more on articles and journalism for topics I’m passionate about, like diversity in mediums and video games.

I hope everyone else is doing wonderfully with their creative projects!

For the Love of NaNo

Have I mentioned how much I love NaNoWriMo months? I did a fairly recent post about how I haven’t really written anything since the last NaNo month back in April, but here I am with 10k words already for this month with the current session.

I write little scenes and one-shots, and most of them are fanfiction-y, but a few of the one-shots are more original pieces that I’m pleased with. Some of them are continuing other works that I have saved on my computer while others are just random what-if sort of things.

I may not be as interested in writing novels as I used to be, but I still love the feeling of creating and writing worlds. It’s nice that NaNo is there to remind me of that every few months!

An Ode to Fanfiction

I first started really writing when I was probably about thirteen or fourteen, and it was fanfiction for the Legend of Zelda video game series. My first story was horrendous.

My second story wasn’t too bad and, while I have definitely have improved with my writing skills since then, it was well-received by those that cared to review and tell me they enjoyed it. It was a long story, one that a pantser like me probably shouldn’t have embarked on without a plan regarding the length, and it was inevitably dropped when life obligations got in the way of fanfiction writing.

Still, writing the fanfiction was fun, and I even dabble in it nowadays by handwriting in fun notebooks. I also read fanfiction whenever I find myself dissatisfied with the idea that the book or game I had just completed is over.

Fanfiction is amazing to me. Here are novel-length works printed online for free by some very talented writers. With fanfiction, bad scenes can be fixed, characters be saved (Fred Weasley, anyone?), a setting can be explored and expanded with a mere set of 26 letters all rearranged in various ways. Not only can these stories, these expanded works for some favorite franchises and series, be fascinating, but the capacity of a writer’s imagination just blows me away.

Here are people that love a story so much that they are compelled to share what else might have happened after the back cover was closed, what could have happened had the villain defeated the hero or if the hero got lost or if the sidekick had been the star of the show or if this side character had joined the party–

The possibilities are endless when it comes to stories, and fanfiction writers are brilliant for sharing.

Your Favorite Pairing

Pick your favorite pairing of characters, either original or from you favorite fandom.

  • who’s the early bird and who’s the night owl
  • who’s the absolute disaster in the kitchen
  • who’s the one that spends the most money while shopping
  • who cries at sappy movies
  • who gets forced to watch the sappy movies
  • who made the first move
  • who calls the other by lovey pet names
  • who’s the better singer and who’s the better dancer
  • who gets overexcited at their favorite or new things
  • who is more protective
  • who likes to follow astrology and who thinks it’s garbage
  • who stays up to wait for the other to get home
  • who tries to stay up for the other but ends up falling asleep on the couch
  • who puts mistletoe up all over the house near Christmas
  • who gets exasperated with all that mistletoe but goes along with all the kisses anyway

Just a little something to make you dwell on your characters. Have fun, or share your own!

Keeping the Excitement

As some of you may know, I started writing when I tried my hand at The Legend of Zelda fanfiction over ten years ago. While that original story was atrocious, there was a second Legend of Zelda fanfiction that I had started writing based off of the Four Swords Adventures game for the GameCube.

It was more humorous than anything else, with characters loosely based on myself, Rachel, and our elder sister Lisa joining the main character Link on his adventure. It was fairly popular, actually, until I stopped uploading it back in 2009.

That particular story is still saved on my computer and DropBox, and I was going through it on my DropBox app on my phone last night while waiting at the hairdresser’s place for Rachel to finish getting her hair trimmed. The first few chapters were awful, making me cringe, but the last couple showed a great improvement. I’m better now than I was then, but it was nice to go back and see a marked difference in my writing.

It’s little boosts like that that keep me excited to write.
