… And still I think about you. Bonus points if you know what song I’m paraphrasing here.
In this case, “You” is Eben, the main character in Vintage. He’s been fun to write and I miss him already.
I suppose I ought to post something about how Camp NaNo went, now that we’re a week into August. Some of you might be curious how writing (well, sort of rewriting) Vintage went and where I’m at in general.

Camp NaNo has been proceeding well and as you might have guessed from the title of this post, I’ve won. Actually, I won back on July 19th, but I hadn’t gotten around to posting about it for a number of reasons.

No, I’m not planning to post every day of camp, but I had something I wanted to share today.
Yesterday was rough, I won’t lie. The whole day was, not just writing. I think this was largely due to the two hours sleep I managed Tuesday night. Maybe three.
I spent a lot of yesterday in a haze of tired and coffee. I somehow made it through the day job without falling over or screwing anything up (that I know of so far at least). I consider that a minor miracle, given the number of people who commented on my state. Maybe this means I’m good at my job? *shrug*
