I hope you've had fun reading this WiP so far. (WiP means work in progress. I don't know if it's used in writing, but in art school, if we weren't finished with something by the time weekly critiques rolled around, we had to label it WiP.)
Does "No Static At All" seem rough? Does it cry out for a good editor? It should. It's a first draft.
This serialized novel is part of a program called NaNoWriMo, a smushed together word for National Novel Writing Month. The objective of the original NaNo, which happens every November, and the Camp NaNos, which occur in April and July, is to write something all the way through from start to finish.
November NaNo has a set goal: 50,000 words. Camp NaNos are different. Each participant can set their own goal. My goal for this camp is 30K words. I dithered and got a late start, so I might not reach it my the end of the month. If it's still fun to write and people are reading it, I'll keep writing it.
I did anyone tuning in a heads up about the nature of this blog/novel/serial thingie. Some of y'all have sent me some nice critiques and I appreciate it. Please keep them coming. I see the holes in my narrative so far and agree some passages could be cut down. That will come with later drafts. Right now it's all about getting that first version completed.
And even though the month is already one third gone, there's still time to come camping and do some writing of your own. You can visit Camp NaNoWriMo here: http://campnanowrimo.org/
