It’s almost the end of the month and the first month of Camp NaNo is coming to a close. I originally had a plan to write 50,000 words this month, unfortunately I had an off month. I had to lower my goal for this month to 10,000 words.
Next month, the goal is to finish the novel I started working on. It’s called Give into the Night. It’s kind of a dark supernatural comedy. It’s basically a satire on the Young Adult paranormal tropes in YA. I decided to switch the roles and have the girl be the supernatural creature and the guy be the human.
Some of the tropes that I’m thinking about including are:
1. The insta-love
2. The love triangle
3. Mysterious character
4. Too stupid to live actions done by characters
5. Add some stalking in there.
6. A bad boy character
There are some other things, but that’s basically it. I’ve been looking at some advice about writing a satire. I know I should avoid trying too hard. I should also put my characters in hilarious situations to see how they would react.
I also have two other novels that need to be finished. I would at least like to finish them before next NaNo in November. I think that’s about it.
Good luck to you on your projects.
