Death’s Song at Camp

Published June 20, 2015 by Jess Arwen

Hello readers! I just wanted to post here to let you know that I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this July! If you’re not sure what this is or how to get involved, click on the banner above to be directed to their website.

To be honest, I’ve never written a novel before, so the prospect of writing one in a month leaves me feeling tentative about the whole project. The length of this goal, however, being a month means I probably won’t get bored halfway through. Instead, I will be rushing with so many of my comrades to finish somewhere around 50,000 words in one month.

It’s good that Camp happens in Summer, for if I were to do the November NaNoWriMo, I wouldn’t achieve my goal thanks to school. Thus, this is also a thank you to all the people who make Camp NaNoWriMo possible, and I’m excited to get writing.

The novel I will be working on, I have currently named Death’s Song, but this is likely to change. This work will follow the life of a girl named Katerina who accidentally pushes Death down the stairs, causing him to forget how to reap, and she is forced to help him do his job, through her gift of music. Most people don’t see Death, and consequently don’t see her either, so what is she to do when someone decides to follow her?

Once I finish it and get some rough edits on it, I hope to publish it on Figment for some feedback. You’re all welcome to check out my profile anytime on Figment as I’ll be cooking up some other projects in the meantime.

Who else is going to Camp NaNoWriMo? What will you write about?
