At least I assume it's only people visiting my site. I suppose cats might be using our internet connections while we're asleep, but I doubt they would find much of interest here.
I've made it through the first two days of Camp NaNoWriMo and I am currently ahead on my word count. My attempts at tent building have failed thus far, but I do not despair of hope. I will find a way. Perhaps I should borrow some duct tape from one of my fellow campers.
My cabinmates are wonderful. We chat regularly and have entered the Cabin Challenge under the team name of Marshmallow. The idea is to reach a collective word count, and so if one of us falls behind another can write extra to help the team. I have received much encouragement from the other campers in Cabin Marshmallow. I sense new friendships will blossom during this camp session.
The story is progressing as well. I think the plot will really pick up now and a finished draft may well be within sight.
The food has been ok, and I have not run into any poison ivy yet. I have not gone swimming in the lake, for two reasons: 1. I don't swim; and 2. there are rumors of vicious monsters that attack your plot, dragging it down and putting holes in it, twisting and turning it until you can't recognize your own work. I don't consider myself particularly superstitious, but I figure it's better not to chance it.
I'll write again when I have a break in activities. Hope all is well for you. Give Aunt Bertha a hug for me.
P.S. Please remember that April is also Autism Awareness Month. As a mother of autistic children, this means a great deal to me. The world is sadly lacking in understanding of this disorder and cruel words, even when clearly spoken out of ignorance, can hurt our children and those of us who love them. Please find some time this month to learn more about autism, or to share what you know with another. Thank you.
