Fifteen hundred words! This brings me almost back on track for my reduced goal of 10K by the end of the month. It also completes the prologue of (yet another) entirely new story...
"Hey, don't be like that," said the man. "You'd be so pretty if you smiled."

Okay, this situation was quickly tipping from 'microaggression' into 'active harassment'. Savannah pointedly turned her gaze out the window, over the head of the redhead reading beside her.

"Jackass," said an irritated clear alto.

I am obsessing over the Perfect First Paragraph.

Unless I call out sick from work—not outside the realm of possibility; I feel horrid—my word count for the day is 175. Of which only 109 words are good words. I have problems with this 'internal editor' thing.
Sistrums jangled, cymbals chimed, castanets clacked, dancers stamped. Meritamun, princess of Kemet, poured a measure of beer for the goddess Hathor and another for herself.

So I am not pantsing Viva La Vida after all. I sat down to write an email to a family friend who volunteered editorial assistance on my next novel, and I started to summarize the plot, and a thousand words later I apparently have an outline. I think that makes me officially a planner.

[community profile] jukebox_fest reveals have occurred, so while I won't explicitly link my fannish identity from this identity, I'll tell you that the working title of my Camp NaNo novel is Viva La Vida and it's set in a fantasy New Kingdom Egypt, starring a queer female Pharaoh who gets dethroned and tries to win back her crown. At this point that's all I've got that isn't in the [community profile] jukebox_fest story. YAY PANTSING.

So here goes on the public accountability portion of Camp NaNoWriMo. July is a 31-day month and my word count goal for the month is 50K, so my daily goal could be 1613 but I think I'm going to keep it at 1667 with plans of celebrating victory a day early.

I'm really excited about this novel. I can't tell you much about it until [community profile] jukebox_fest reveals, part because it's an expansion of my story for that challenge and part because I'm pantsing it and don't know much myself, but I hope y'all will enjoy it.
