July 1, 2013- STARTING THE JOURNEY
Hello everyone. I've decided that through my camp journey I'm going to post about my progress and my experience so others can get a feel and understand what I'm going through. I've decided to write The Curse of Betrayal during camp which is the sequel to The Thousand Year Curse.
I set my goal for 75,000 words. Usually people in camp try to get 50,000 words and that's a great goal. The issue I have with it is that I tend to write more than needed and cut through edits. A 50,000 word first draft would be nowhere near what I want for a novel.
Meanwhile... I've also planned to finish my editing of The Thousand Year Curse and hand it off to one possibly two final beta readers. This means the book may be out by the end of the month if everything goes as I have planned.
What I like from camp-
One of my favorite features thus far is the cabins. They're fun because you get to talk with five other people who are in similar situations. There's a chat box in the cabin and you're free to talk about whatever you want. So far I've made a friend (yippee!) and she's given me some motivation to start when she raked in over 2,000 words today.
KICK MY BUTT INTO HIGH GEAR!
What I don't like-
I guess I want more. It is the first day so it may get more intense but I want a bunch of people cheering and getting excited to start. I was going crazy and logged on right at 12 and wanted to talk but nobody else was on *tear*.
I heard that fridays are when the company sends out emails and everyone logs on so I'll have to wait and check that out. I hope that as we get more into it more people will talk and bounce off ideas. We'll see...
I'm off to write. Hopefully I get a bunch done!

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
