It's weird how you call it Camp NaNo or August NaNo or whatever. Camp National November. Shouldn't it be Camp WriMo? Camp Writing Month? August WriMo?
I really digress.
Manipulators stands at 48,000 words and twenty-three chapters finished, out of a projected thirty-five chapters. Or is it thirty-six? I don't remember. I split a chapter in half and got confused. I wrote the outline at four-thirty AM, anyway, I don't expect myself to remember the precise numbers.
So that's another twelve or thirteen chapters left. And some of them should be pretty short (like twenty-four). Then again, a lot of them will be pretty long. So I know pretty much for a fact that I won't finish in August. But that's okay, because twelve/thirteen chapters to the finish line is a lot closer than I've been, and I shouldn't have a hard time writing the rest of it in September.
Especially when I have my peeps watching my back.
Chibi-Automaton Sigurd, Siggy for short. He urges all my deaths.
Ayame Souma from my favorite anime ever, Fruits Basket. He's a handy evil-twist plotter, but they all have to do with romance, and I have no romance in Manipulators, unless you count Cynnabar's sort-of crush on Ariadne.
The tall bunny-eared creature is Scy (Sai). He's my quiet buddy - bonks Ayame over the head when Aya gets too talkative.
And Scar is... um. Motivation? He glares at me when I don't write enough, anyway. Not especially encouraging, but I like to imagine him singing "Be Prepared" during tough spots. He doesn't appreciate that, but, y'know, suck it up.
With a team like this... "what have I to fear?"
