Camp NaNoWriMo begins on the 1st of April, which means I’m going to be MIA for the next month while I attempt to write 50 000 words towards my Pushing Boundaries manuscript, a project I plan to have finished writing, edited and ready for publishing by the end of the University semester (I’m hoping for it to be self-published on Smashwords but I’m also thinking about Blurb as an option). This isn’t just a personal thing, this is for a University assignment, so in order to graduate, I need to do well with this project (why do I do this to myself?).
However I wanted to take this moment to do a shout out, one of my characters in my novel is Autistic and non-verbal and she uses Auslan Sign Language as a method of communication, to help me with this I have taken to regularly interrogating my sister (who works as an Auslan interpreter for a secondary college) and visiting the wordpress blog of Asphyxia, there’s heaps of interesting artistic stuff there (so I recommend readers check out the blog) but Asphyxia also does a free online Auslan course and I would super appreciate it if any of the readers could make a donation to keep it running (I’m sure Asphyxia would appreciate it as well).
As a side note, as per usual, instead of working on a revised version of a chapter outline (or something like that), I’ve been investigating Bullet Journals, mostly because I’m easily distracted by pretty objects and bright colours. For those wondering what a Bullet Journal is, well look no further:
And knowing is half the battle. However, Kim made me a lovely journal
and I have been considering the possibilities. If anyone else is interested in Bullet Journals, let me know in the comments section. If anyone is planning on participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, please also let me know.
