Blerg. I’ve been a colossal failure at Camp NaNo
this month. I could never settle on a project. I jumped from one thing to another, but nothing felt like it was the one calling to me. The only positive is I did some solid brainstorming on a variety of ideas that have been rattling around in my head even if no real writing got done. I hope y’all managed to get more words on paper than I did!
7/22 - I laughed at my nanna's meshugga
insistence that her neighbor was an alien. I wasn't laughing the day I saw him swallow a cat whole.
7/23 - "She knew exactly what she was doing, nicht wahr
, Mrs. Jones?" Her tears instantly cease, and she grins at the destruction she wrought.
7/24 - Sharing the mayor's face was Ty's passe-partout
to the city's pleasures, but when the mob comes to kill his twin, they don't let Ty explain.
7/25 - "Your new hairstyle is sui generis
." It's the only thing she could think to tell her friend, who'd spent a fortune on that abomination.
7/26 - Constant horror on the news warped her Weltanschauung
, so she feared going outside. A twin-engine crashing into her house killed her.
7/27 - A voice inside the armoire
calls my name. I yank open the door but find only sweaters. Too bad, I'd hoped for a portal to another world.
7/28 - "If you think you'll be better off without me, then leave. Bonne chance
!" Her words echoed like a curse through his miserable life.
