This category covers my original fiction (fantasy, science fiction, horror, etc.) and fan fiction. My muses are a crazy bunch, so you’ll find everything from poetry and songs, to 50k NaNoWriMo insanity.

1. I was the best of the best, I had to be to get this diplomatic posting, but even after years on-planet I still had trouble gauging their emotions.

2. When he turns forty tiny silver scales begin to creep out from his hairline, inching slowly outwards as the days pass and the curse soaks into his bones.

3. The dark and light sides of the planet are both too inhospitable to colonize, so they spread out along the circumference enwrapped in a perpetual dusk and dawn.

4. The magic pops and flashes in miniature fireworks as we get closer.

5. “I wish you could have seen her when she was new.” She ran a hand down the battered hull with a wistful smile just short of tears.

1. The walls of the canyon are steep, but rough and he has no problems finding handholds as he works his way to the top. They may have barred him from the path itself, but it can’t keep him from following alongside.

2. Generations of dragons have worn deep clawmarks into the mountainside as they catch the cliffs on landing, so it’s easy to see from the hillside where the hatching caves lie.

3. “If I had meant you to learn it, I would have taught it to you.” His aunt snapped the book closed sharply and the spine huffed dust. “I told your mother I don’t care for curious minds, now I’m telling you.”

4. Magic is a lot like computer programming, it doesn’t care what you meant to do it only cares what you’ve actually said.

5. The lantern’s light is thin and more green than white, but it’s enough to read the console.

(We’ll ignore the fact that my track record for wins with Camp NaNo’s is currently abysmal.)

So what’s on the docket for April’s Camp? Why my attempt at a play on the Beauty and the Beast story, Into Darkness. Which currently exists primarily in my head and a few very badly written scenes from twenty years ago, give or take.

Which makes a perfect start for a planster (half planner/half panster) NaNo! 😉

So let’s do some planning! 😀
