Freewrite #8: (For WriMos) Under Pressure

Since it’s Camp NaNo I thought it would be fun to tailor July’s “challenges” to our NaNo projects. The following scenarios should only be thought of as fun exercises using your Camp NaNo character(s). Don’t feel obligated to actually include them into your manuscript.

When characters are put under extreme pressure, their actions says something about the type of person they are.

The neighborhood geek could actually be a courageous hero.

And the bully? A cuddly kitten!


Your challenge is to choose a character from your current WIP and put them in one (or more) of the following situations:

  • Stuck in an elevator with no way to contact anyone
  • Stranded and needs medical attention
  • Is a witness to a robbery in progress
  • They’ve just found out there’s a bomb in the building


Are they as great as Flynn??


You’ve got two weeks! Post it on your blog and leave a link in the comments.


Monthly Wrap Up: Ending May

Wipes sweat from brow and flick it at you.

Whew! It’s been one tough month for me. There was my 21st birthday, studying, late night headaches, more headaches, more studying, stress, STRESS, finals, and finally a relief.

The wrap up for this month is pretty short because of the things I talked about here and here. However, I still got some blogging done so that’s a plus! Take that college!!

Here’s what happened:

Here’s what happened last month.

What are your plans for June?
