Eve Attempts NaNoWriMo ~ Take 2

If you haven't already guessed by the title, or the massive banner right here, I am taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo this year, and with more resolve and determination than I had back in November.
My Camp profile can be found here
I've tried to get a widget for my blog that reads how many words have been written, but I couldn't find one for Camp, only for the actual NaNo in November.
I'll talk more about what my novel is actually about later, so I'll just leave you with what I have on my Novels Page.
It's called Returned, by the way.
Catie and Thomas are best friends. They've known each other for the entirety of their lives, and wouldn't go a day without each other, if that were an option. Thomas is Catie's own 'dream boy', literally. No night has gone by since she was born that she didn't see her Thomas. What will ensue when Thomas disappears from her dreams, only to appear in her classroom?
Like a forgotten dream, the hours of the night they spent in their paradise disappeared in minutes, leaving him reaching for her hand with a smile, bringing her to her feet. In her peripheral, the glade began to fade into nothing, disappearing so quickly that it was almost like it had never been there. “You’re waking up, dearie,” he pointed out with a wistful sigh.
* * *
“Have fun waiting.”
“Have fun living.” He encircled her waist in a hug, resting his chin on her shoulder for a moment longer than he usually did.
“I’ll see you tonight, Tom.” All that was left of her dream was him, slowly getting more distant from her.
“Good morning, Catherine.” She didn’t notice the small change from ‘have a good day’ to ‘good morning’; she had already woken up.

The synopsis makes it sound like some sort of crappy love story, I know, but hopefully it'll pack a bit more punch than that. 
So wish me luck, there'll probably be a blog post in the next couple of weeks complaining about it :)


  1. I have never heard of NaNoWriMo, but I will definitely check it out. It sounds really cool! Good luck, I'm sure your story will turn out really well :)

    1. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is basically a month where you try and write 50,000 words in a month (around the size of a novella, or half a novel). Thank you, I suppose we'll have to wait and see :)
