Yes, I am a Camp NaNoWriMo-er


Well, um, so much for opening the door to June. Sorry guys! Do you forgive me?

My excuse is brilliant though. Very muchly so. I could go on about school, or the fact that I was at the beach, or- well, you get the picture. However, I will instead talk about something very interesting.

Some of you may know that I’ve been Ccamp Nanoing. Yes. That is a word. So, I was requested (by one of my Cabin member’s actually) to do a post on my WIP. So, I figured that made sense, I mean, end of Camp and all, I may as well tell you guys what I’ve been doing!

So, now on with the post!

Well, my current WIP is not too horrific, at least, I don’t think it is.

This is my brief synopsis thingy…

Connor Daleson grew up in an interesting family. His mother, a successful scientist accidentally killed his brother seven years ago, his father, a secret agent, works for a society who aims for world domination, and his sister has discovered more in dimensional travel than almost anyone. Connor, arriving home from a day of training in agent work like his father, is injected by his mother with a new test, an attempt to right her wrong in killing his brother. He spends the next few weeks lying low, hoping that no one discovers his secret. One day, he meddles with it too much and accidentally kills both of his parents. That's when he had to tell his sister the truth. He was a Dimensional Traveller. The Society, intent on overtaking the universe try to take Connor's blood for testing, but he and his sister run, hoping to get away. After a few near death experiences as Connor practices his new talent, Laura is captured by the Society, and Connor by a gang of Chimney Sweeps in London 1810, intent on getting their friend, Ashley, out of prison. He must chose; Does he hunt his sister down, or stay and save an innocent life?

This is the stats for my cabin, and my own WIP which I was VERY excited to reach my goal of 50k before school started, hence my pace kinda decreased.

Now, I was asked that I shared some snippets, and I think that could be cool.

This is a nice bit in my prologue, just before things start getting too messy.

~  “Captain, what’s this?” His son winced as his rough thumb brushed over a purpling bruise on his cheekbone. He shuffled his feet, avoiding eye contact for a few moments, before drawing a deep breath and straightening, putting his hands behind his back and looking Rae in the eyes.

“Ralen was picking on Mikala, and I told him to stop. He then stole Mikala’s new wristband, and I took it from him and gave it back. He shoved me.” He bit his lower lip. “It wasn’t fair though Rae! He shouldn’t have taken it, and I was only doing what was right! I couldn’t let him get away with it.”

Rae nodded, trying his best to keep his expression serious, “What happened then?”

Connor stared at the ground now, shoulders slumped. “I lost my temper, and I punched him. He hit me back. Training Mistress Glint came and got me into trouble. Ralen’s friends backed him up, and he got out of it.” He scowled at the dirt, “And they didn’t even check the records. As always.”

Rae straightened and placed a hand on his son’s shoulder, “Connor, good job.”  ~

My epilogue, or, the end of it! *Grins* Is it evil, or not-so-bad?

~Agony tore through her limbs as the electricity jolted through her, forcing a scream from her throat as she convulsed where she lay, her eyes blinded. Pain. So much pain. When will it end?

Everything fell silent and she could hear only her own shuddering gasps. Footsteps approached her and she squinted up at the form.

“Tell me where he is. Then this will end.” The voice growled at her and she flinched backwards, expecting pain. None came.

How much longer can I stand this? She met Cliff’s eye.

“I will never speak.”

“Then you shall die.” ~

Villain Convos are sooooo much fun.  If you haven’t written one, you should.

~A slight knocking came to the door and Drentern raised his eyebrows. “Yes?” He asked, not looking up from his screen, his fingers tapping the keys.

“You may find this somewhat to your interest Michael.” A sarcastic voice drawled to him and he lifted his eyes, continuing to type.

“Ryand Sands.” A thin film of bile coated the inside of him mouth, “What is it now?” Not a war. I’m sick of these threats. The coldness in his gut was unnerving. I only his threat of a war was empty.

The IT specialist smirked, “Don’t worry, this has nothing to do with me.” He hesitated, “Although, a pay rise would be good.”

“Get on with it.” Drenstern growled, turning his eyes back to the screen. Where is Regina’s report? She hasn’t come in for days. A frown settled over his face. Neither has Rae. But their children have still been attending classes. What’s going on? ~

Heheh, so, what do you guys think? Some names were disclosed because, y’know, spoilers!

If you want to know more about my novel, then, feel free to look at Jane’s Blog and see me join her in awkward rambling.

What about you? Any cool snippets? (If so, feel free to share!!!)


  1. AHEM SO I NOTICED SOMETHING. You have a smirking, snarky, sarcastic IT 'specialist' *squints* Nooooot at all like Milson or anything. *cough cough* But okayyy whatever, I'll forgive you. :P

    And ahem. That second snippet. *pats your head* You sound like you've been learning from me. XD

      Well, he is very different to Milson. He has blue hair and purple eyes for a start.

      *Blinks* Who else am I meant to learn from? And that scene was the first one I wrote. Glad you liked it!
