My Weekly Update – Camp, Compliments and Candy

Camp NaNoWriMo

Four days in and I have to say that it is a lot more challenging then the last writing challenge I did.  Being on goal is about the only good thing I can say about the experience so far.  But . . .

It is still early and I still love the story.  I was happy to get some great advice about POV last week from my blog friends.  My concerns about writing from the male point of view were reduced by an admission from AM Schultz.

amschultzcom says: We have had lots of fine interactions on the Twitter and on the blogs, so I am going to share a little secret with you, but you can’t tell anybody else:“But, my biggest concern is that I have never writing a story from a man’s POV. What if my big strong, sensitive guy starts sounding like a girl?”When nobody is around, and our machismo is not on public display, ALL men sound like girls. :-)

For the rest of you doing Camp NaNoWriMo, how was your first few days? 

Compliments

I received one of the best compliments the other day and all because I RT’ed a post.

I am not brining this up to brag (although it is official, I am awesome), but to bring attention to what doing so little can mean to other writers and bloggers.

I will continue to support the blogging community to make myself worthy of writing along side great bloggers such as Paul at All Groan Up.

Candy 

I was in the Green Grocery yesterday and they had restocked.  Let me back up a little and explain.  I live at a resort 45 minutes away from a decent grocery story.  But, there is a little convenience store on the resort campus, which stocks it shelves once every 6 months.

I was pleasantly surprised that yesterday was a restock day.  That means, writing snacks for the week; Sour Skittles, Soda Water & Cheese Crackers.

What is your favorite writing snack?

 Special Shout Out to my big brother.  It was his birthday yesterday.  He put his life online years before I had the nerve to.  Thanks so much for the inspiration.
