WIP Day - Camping and Synopsis Writing

Today I didn't realize it was Wednesday until a commercial during my son's cartoon told me so.  That is how awesome I am.  Thank you cartoon, for keeping me up to date.

Oh, and I have to say: Welcome to all you new followers!  Yes... you.  And you.  I love seeing you here! Really, I do.

Let's dive in.

Camp NaNoWriMo.  Have you heard of it?  Simply put, it is NaNoWriMo's resolution to giving us the challenge during the summer, instead of just November.  (If you still have no idea what NaNoWriMo is, click here.)

Well, I am doing it.  At least, I am trying to.  Monday started off great.  I got a few thousand words plucked away on ITB.  It felt so good to just write again.  Mindless, crazy typing.  Nothing more.  I loved it, even though I already know most everything I just plucked out needs a major overhaul.  It's a good thing.

Last night, I had to write out my full synopsis for PN.  I have been putting that off... but the time has come.  Man, those are hard to do!  I think I got it, but by the end my brain was mush and ITB didn't get any attention.  I swear, its like having two children, who both want you nonstop.  (I know that feeling well!)

Still, the synopsis is done... I need to read through it once more.  I scoured the internet for tips on how to write one of these.  And each site had different thoughts.  Finally I just threw my hands in the air, busted it out, and am hoping that it is good enough. (Hoping like mad...)

Tonight, ITB gets my love again.  I promised it, and I just can't stand to see it pout.
I wrote out a blurb for the Camp NaNoWriMo site.  I am not majorly in love with it, and plan to totally redo it, but hey: When you need something fast, this is what you get.

So, to close my WIP update for the week, here you go.

In the Blood (Title subject to change)

Ever since Dawn turned eighteen, she has been unable to remember the dreams that cause her to wake in a terrified sweat each morning. Now, as her nineteenth birthday draws near, things are getting stranger. Her dreams seem to be getting more intense. Her own waking reflection terrifies her. Strange shadows pass the moon, and the ever present feeling of eyes watching her keeps Dawn on edge.

After meeting Ryder, the strange man who looks too similar to her in his perfection, life as she knew it disappears. He frightens her. Yet something deeper pulls Dawn to him. Ryder holds the answers Dawn thought she would never find. The truth about her father’s death. The fear of her dreams. The cause of her perfection.

Ryder is Dawn’s only protection against the flying demon that is now hunting for her life. But can Ryder be trusted? The answers, all of the secrets, are in her blood.

CheryleAnn - Thanks! It is just a mock cover (sadly I cannot find that image now!) but I plan on making something as similar to it as I can, when the time comes. :)
