Camp NaNoWriMo - July 2017

 So, for whatever godforsaken reason I decided I was going to do Camp, again, because I try and I try but it never seems to actually work out. I hit my word count but it's scattered throughout prompts for RaTs, various projects I start and abandon, and free writing that never goes anywhere. Even with my work schedule wearing me out and other summer commitments, I thought this would be a good idea. We'll see how much of a mistake I've made midway through July.

Anyway, along the line of ambition, I've started trying to plot out a new project. I haven't really written anything since starting TGO last year, and despite the fun I'm having with it, I do want to try something new. If you're curious, I'll post the basic synopsis behind a cut.

A security guard whose life rarely strays from working and drinking suddenly begins to notice things in his reality are going awry. Things are disappearing, appearing, changing--nothing is as it was the day before, or the moment before. In an effort to seek out answers, he stumbles across a paranormal/unexplained phenomena podcast and reaches out to one of the co-hosts with his story. They spark up a friendship and through their research, he decides he needs to find the other universe that has been bleeding into his own. The only catch is, in order to do that, he needs to kill himself.
I have my characters, I have some various plot points, I just need to work it out a little more. It seems like it'll be fun, though, and I hope it gets me out of this rut! I'm also hoping I can have a finished first draft by the end of the month. I somehow managed to write 63,000 words during NaNoWriMo in 2015, while having a part time job and carrying a full time college course load, so really, there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to write as much now, when my only responsibility is work.
